If he's firm on wanting an integrated, I have my Yamaha A-S2000 sitting here all boxed up waiting to be offered a job. This is the silver version and comes to you as new. I had used it less than 6 months before the nCore 400 amplifiers came to visit. After that I bought kits, had Mike Galusha build them for me, and boxed the Yamaha for storage. It is indistinguishable from new.
I live in Fruita, Colorado and would consider delivering to Denver or meeting halfway, say maybe Edwards or Avon. Let me know of any interest. I'm remodeling a bathroom and kitchen and could use some cash. That makes me a motivated seller.
The Yamaha will not disappoint you. It is very well built and sounds like it. Has MC/MM phono on board. Retro looks -- it is very cool.
Flash me a PM if interested.
