This is the vaunted and very well-reviewed (IAR, 6Moons, Stereophile, etc.) McCormack DNA-500 stereo amplifier. It includes a stock 20A IEC power cord.
It has been updated with an audiophile-grade German HiFi Tuning fuse for its main ac. The list price for this setup is $7400. I am selling for $3700.
In Issue 80 of IAR J Peter Moncrief says of the DN-500 "So the McCormack DNA-500 comes up aces in that one world, the world of solid state technical excellence. When we consider the other important world, the world of natural musicality, it's no contest. Here the DNA-500 simply runs way ahead of any and every other solid state power amp." He then concluded ""For music lovers,... (the DNA-500) has now captured the top honor as the best solid-state amp on the planet".
6Moons say "The McCormack DNA-500 power amplifier is just such a product - a total high-end slam dunk, an utterly authoritative performer with a warm, supple sense of detail and sufficient reserves of power to drive any set of loudspeakers to full live music scale with an inviting sense of ease and intimacy"
This amp has legendary power! As Steve MCormack says in the same 6Moons review: "The 500-watt rating is rather conservative," asserts McCormack. "The DNA-500 actually delivers closer to 600 watts into 8 ohms, which will double into 4 ohms assuming you can provide enough electrical power from your wall outlets, something that is actually rather difficult to do at that point."
