yes ..as noted earlier, a well made amp will last for years. purchasing used amp would be a good option (depending on amp condition, in relation to price, usage environment ..etc.)At the end of the day, unless I can find a good deal locally, I will probably seek the used market. I agree that is probably the best bang for my buck option.
wouldn't hurt to have a look on CAM ..and Audiogon, if you didn't mind shipping across the border; or for that matter driving down to Seattle for example. your options, selection will rise. There's a couple of tricks to ship across border re: customs, some go for it .. others don't. Or just search, make contact ..and drive to reasonably close offerings (no one has to know..ha!)
that being said, there's a Classe CAV-75 for sale on CAM in your coordinates. (produced, admin'ed out of Lachine, Que .. FWIW) i don't know if it's a good (or great) deal...but you can check blue book ..condition/shape obviously ..etc.. (you know)
