^^^ I would tread very carefully.
        These cost $4,000 new.
        Granted, probably about 10 years old now.
        But still. R4,300 is suspiciously low.
        (If they're working properly, that is.)

Thatís exactly the problem, canít buy without proof of function

I would take a chance on it if I could just test them, price is good.

Itís obviously a typo. I think the seller is asking R43k. Seem a little more reasonable?

May be a bargain, I know they always inflate their alleged retail price by quite a margin.

399 at 1 day only: 1,999 on special at takealot: no idea if they are any good though.

& of course, being 1dayonly there is no guarantee that buying it at that price means that you will actually get it at that price.

And all gone, Amazon reviews seem to indicate they have an issue with the charging port breaking but otherwise seem good.

Looking at the specs it seems it was a little over priced at the "original price" of R12K or am I missing something? Seems it has fairly limited input / outputs compared to other AVR's in the same price point

edit, also no 12V triggers, 80w @ 8 ohm, sorry but I think there are much better deals out there....
