I've got a Denon PMA-350 that I'd let go cheap. Also got its matching CD player. The main volume knob is missing and has been replaced with something that doesn't really suit. They're both in OK condition, though, and fully working.

£30 for both. Dunno if you'd want them since they're not on the list, but worth a go. I have some family down in Bedford so we can probably arrange a handover in the coming months.

Not in Bedford bud, thanks but I'm strictly just after the models listed.

Woops, looks like I read it wrong.
Fair enough, best of luck on your search. Most of the guys around here use DIY amps, so I think you'll be better trawling eBay.

If you can see the cone move regularly, you haven't got enough speaker.

No probs Chris,

I won't be bothering with eBay, had more than my fair share of bad experiences.

I reckon the volume knob for a PMA 350 could still be got...

The PMA 850 was a gentle giant of a thing and we loved it at the time.

CA7/PA7 - you need to leave 'em on, preamp 24/7 if possible and the power amp needed two hours to fully straighten out, the sound being bloated, then bloated and harsh, then harsh, then really good once stable I remember.

Old Accuphase amps suffered noisy controls I remember, more than other Jap models. Don't know why but thought I'd mention it. Musical sound with double cream on top :D
