I had one a few years ago and they are a real bargain at the prices they sell for (I paid $130 for a new in box unit). I sold it for about what I paid for it (can't recall - maybe $120).

i used a couple of the amc 2100s to run my power crazed revels--i believe the amps bridge to 250w in mono. for the giveaway price, they were very serviceable--at least as good as the rotel 980 i owned at the same time, though not as robust as parasound hca. amc's always been a somewhat mysterious company--they were rumored to be the oem for nad and others--and now they seem to have vanished. however, their stuff is well built and, as stated, a real unsung bargain.
I bought an AMC CD8b player locally about eight years ago without really knowing much about it. I was just trying to quickly get a system together for a friend who was going through a divorce.
It sounded exceptionally good and survived A/B tests against three or four other, much more expensive players over the next couple of years. She's played multiple discs a day for the eight years she's owned it and it's still working beautifully.
