Well... one for $275 right now on Audiogon. Up to you if the extra bit is worth it.

Sup Skeeter? Thanks Man.The price is not bad. The amp is a very good amp. I would descibe the sound close to a Denon sound but has authority. You need to listen to it to see if you like the sound. I have the 555II and love it.
Thanks Jim.I haven't heard the 555 but I used to have the 545II powering a set of Dahlquist DQ-20i's and it was absolutely fantastic and had WAY less power than the 555! The bass is very tight and controlled with great midrange clarity. My only gripe, if it can be called that, is that they tend to be a bit forward on the top end. I've heard the same response from other Adcom owners as well. For the grunt the 555 has, I think $300 is a very good price. Hook it up and see how you like it Kev, I think you'll like the added finesse that it gives the 850's as well as ******** kick you in the pants mid-bass. It should make those 4 5-1/4's absolutely throttle!
The 555 was a solid amp. It should serve you well, but know that many people have had to re-cap the amp to make it perform like it did when new. $300 might be a bit steep if it needs some work.
