    The SA-9100 is Pioneer's finest professional stereo integrated amplifier.

    It features an all stage direct coupled pure complementary OCL circuit, resulting in a super wide bandwidth and distortion free power, a unique 3 stage direct coupled equaliser, twin stepped tone controls for making critical bass and treble adjustments and level set volume and loudness contour controls to adjust listening preference.

    Other features include 2-way tape duplicating and monitoring, 2 position high and low filters and 3 pairs of speaker output terminals.
    So what you are saying is that it has the fairly typical over-complicated (generally feedback based) tone and volume controls of a high end amp of the period, an approach that is generally given as one of the main reasons why kit of the era usually sounds a bit rubbish?

    Well you seem to think so. Somewhere it has a ‘stellar’ reputation you said. Case closed presumably.

    20,000mHz top end extension on these speakers. Must be new technology!

    You really don't get it do you. What I (or you) think of the amp on sale is irrelevant. What potential buyers might think is.
    Simples....

    Think I'd rather have the £50 in my hand via Gumtree than ALL the hassle eBay can lead to if having to post an amp and HOPE that it arrives undamaged, then there's the unscrupulous buyers who claim faults etc.

    Once repairs are paid for, packaging sourced fees paid, hardly worth the hassle

    No Alex, not MHz but mHz, so they go up to 20Hz.

    I don't think my hearing would go that low.

    Precisely ... doubly so if the seller knows absolutely nothing about hifi.

    Let one of the many bottom feeders take the pain of getting it repaired and finding a mug to offload it to at an inflated price.

    No favour was done here putting expectations of £££ in the woman's head.
