    ZX was a pricey line for PG in the late 90's. My ZX950 cost like 1700 back then. I liked mine alot.

    But i would rather spend 300 to buy a PPI A600.2.

    I'd probably offer him a little less, but I'd rather own that amp than a lot of new crap that gets recommended on here...

    the 300 includes 3 infinity 10's in a box

    the amp is 200 by itself

    I'd offer him $150, see where it winds up.

    But $200 for something in that condition, with that quality...I could live with that.

    Think this amp is capable of powering 2 JL 10w3v2's?

    I ran PPI when i was in IASCA in the late 90's. The Art series was some of the best amps i have ever owned.

    My favorite of all time were my LP amps though.

    I think that it's worth $200 easily. Those were solid amplifiers.

    The PPIs were (and still are) nice amps, but I think the PGs were a bit beefier built. I've yet to see any amps built as beefy as the MS series PG amps were. I had an MS-275 and MS-2125 and those things were built like M-1 tanks!
