Reasonable price to pay for an Arcam A85?


Prominent Member
Does anyone know what a reasonable price is to pay for an Arcam A85? 2nd Hand or ex-demo?

Would this amp compare well to an older arcam integrated + power combo?

Im thinking of buying one for my recently purchased CDM-1SEs...

Thanks for any advice :thumbsup:

I paid £440 for mine (2nd hand) from a dealer about a year ago, and got a three month warranty. It was in mint condition, and sounds a lot more powerful and detailed than my old Arcam Alpha 5+ (but that was only 40wpc).

Being a nosey git I've tracked the sale of about 30 of these on E-Bay in the last year, and the average price is around £425 - but on top of that is postage, and the risk! So, I'm very happy with my deal - it's an excellent amp.
