Adcom GFA-555 Power Amplifier, Pure Power
Adcom made its name in 1979 with the introduction of the GFA-1 power amplifier. The GFA-1 used what Adcom called a "high current" design with substantial power, at a reasonable price. The amp was a hit, and a company was born.
Fun Trivia: I you can guess what "GFA" stood for, email us and we will send you some Holt Hill Audio swag.
We are offering a follow-on success to the original GFA-1, the GFA-555 power amplifier. The 555 was a Stereophile magazine "Best Buy" inn 1985, and has held its own against many, many other, new, and more exotic amplifiers over the last 40 years. Adcom shocked the industry back then by providing amplification that was uncolored, crisp, with boisterous and controlled bass - All in affordable and well-assembled packages. Rated conservatively at 200 watts per channel into 8 ohm, and 325 watts per channel in to 4 ohm, the 555 can accommodate demanding speaker loads and do so without losing whimsy or charm.
This particular amplifier has been tested and serviced, and works perfectly. Sound is clear and smooth, from the highs to the lows. Really no disappointments here, just pure clean music.
If you are an Adcom collector, or if you just want an affordable amp with no-nonsense performance, this is the one for you.
Demos are encouraged in Lawrence, MA.
