Bought one new in 1997 in Montreal when I lived and worked there for a couple of years. It was my first "high end" amp and it sounded great driving a pair of V1 Paradigm Reference 100s, which I had read about in Stereophile and auditioned at Filtronique: Son et Image, in N. Montreal. I also had a Parasound preamp that I bought a small audio shop downtown to go with it and I can’t remember the exact model, but it was the middle preamp in the line of three models I recall that they had at the time. Plenty of clean power, quiet and well built. I’m pretty sure it was a Mk 1. For $300, provided it works and sounds good, yeah, I would call that a good deal.
