@garthb309. It was on the sellers side, it was something he needed to fix.  Once he fixed it, everything went fine.  
Popular new/used SS stereo power amps under $2500?
@tswisla those are where I started! Simply to expensive.  I settled on some monarchy monos.  Nearly 1/4 the cost of a used 30.8.  The 30.5 is cheaper tho. Pass will come into the apartment someday.

@mcreyn Thank you, I will look into this.  I knew I was going to need "something", but knew nothing about what I needed till now.

@biketony Yes, for starters, the 851N will be my preamp.

@yogiboy Awesome!  Thanks for chiming in.  I watched your review there, informative and helpful, fills in the gaps for me between the regular and the 40th.  I went with some affordable and warm sounding mono amps, they were half my budget, and hav...

@racamuti Not sure how these got by me, but seems a lot of people love these amps just as much as the Parasound. (maybe?). Pretty much looked everywhere I could to find bad news on them, or at least anything to even mildly dismiss them as a "wanna...

@mcreyn I actually just picked up a set of Monarchy mono's.  Seems enough people like them for the reasons I think I'll like them and I paid half my budget.  I think most amps recommended here would be great minus anything bright/thin.  But your r...

     It seems Hegel has come up often, here, and on the Harbeth User Group, and Google searches. I already have a preamp, listed above, so that leaves me with the Hegel H20 power amp, used. I suppose with such strong support for this amp from this...

@twoleftears read more into them, pretty neat!  
Popular new/used SS stereo power amps under $2500?
@twoleftears briefly checked them out, seems like not many dealers in the USA, and no balanced inputs?  I'm not sure how needed balanced inputs are but they seem desired. Although, the few things I read, ppl love them, just didn't pick up on anyon...

@jtcf that's very helpful to know.  I read they were warm but hadn't read to much more into them. Can't find anything bad about parasound other than the a21/23 are not the most detailed, but, it's not a $5k amp either.  So that's OK.  Which paraso...

@auxinput that's very helpful! What you shared reflects what I was thinking (feared!), but at least it's clear now (fast/warm relation, etc). What happens if I run that tube amp on cambridge pre amp? Pros/cons?Iv read that about bryston. So that's...

@jwcinsd thanks for the info!  I'm seeking solid state, even though I do see how darn popular tubes are for these speakers!  
4 ohm (or 6) Bookshelf speakers. Pass Labs 30.8
@almarg WOW.  So as far 4 ohm/ 8 ohm, im not getting "louder" (for this specific set up), presuming the sensitivity is the same.   Or at least I am not doubling my volume like I thought I would be. That explains some of the responses that I didn't...
