What is the expected lifespan of a quality solid state amplifier (Krell, Mark Levinson, Anthem, Bryton, Pass Labs)? Is their any maintenance that can be performed to extend the lifespan of one of these amps?
01-25-12: Nordic587 2 old "low end hifi" SS amps chugging along: 1. a Hitachi receiver SR 2000, circa 1981, 70 W per channel continuous, inherited from my now deceased mother-in-law, has operated without a problem. I use it in my home office. It is on now playing blues..:) 2. my Hafler 9180 purchased in 1995 for $477 has never malfunctioned or shown any sign of sonic degradation.....:) Nordic587 (Threads | Answers | This Thread)
