    I'm thinking about buying this amp for $250. I'm using it with my Yamaha 3050. I know this is an old amp but I read it was a good one. Is this a good price & will I hear an improvement in sound by adding the amp? Thanks!

    I was juggling with some thoughts (nothing clear which way to take for the moment for my HT system) and a home theater dealer offered me a brand new Adcom GFA 6006 (5 channels amp) for 1K$. What to think about that offer? I am not even sure that this manufaturer still exist?

    I am very close to buying power amp (at least 5 channels) for HT setup...and for some music. Been eyeing Outlaw 7075 for quite a while, but there is also a used mint condition Adcom GFA-7500 out there (asking $500). Outlaw 7075 retails for $699. Outlaw is 75wpc x 7. Adcom 150wpc x 5.

    Like many others I presume, REW brought me here. I'm not a big home theater fan myself, although that will come soon enough. I'm more of a stereo guy, both speakers and headphones. I moved into a new apartment with absolutely horrible acoustics - several 30 dB or so nulls in my bass &...

    What make a amp sound better then another? I know the sound to one person may sound different the some one else. To me the Pioneer SX-950 sounds warmer and makes a fuller sound. What causes this?

    My high school buddy / Best Man just recently got into HT so he has been slowly collection electronics along with some other items. He picked a used Adcom GFA-555 awhile back for $300 and before he even completed the setup he already upgraded it to a 75 lbs Parasound (I do not remember the...

    This is a trusty workhorse of an amp. Rated at 80 WPC the control over the bass will stun you for such a conservative number. I am the original owner since 1999, this has been a second system amp in a non-smoking home that has provided years of enjoyment and has the legs to provide many years...

    Adcom GFA-7605 Seven-Channel Amplifier Review Adcom is one of the most historically significant electronics companies in audio history, as they are widely credited with making popular the idea of separating the preamp from the amp.

    I’m having a problem with the Adcom GFA-555II amp that I’ve use for my subwoofers for 14-15 years (bought it used, so I'm sure it's at least 20 years old). It's been a great amp and has always run cool as a cucumber, but recently I noticed that the left channel is blazing hot. I suspect that...

    Was looking at this receiver and wondered if anyone has had any experience with it? Is it typical Adcom reliability and quality and truly close to separates as they say it is? Will it power anything in a moderate sized room ie 28 x 16. What other options should I consider within this price...
