Yeah I'm not surprised you have to look abroad. Is there any particular skill needed in swapping them out once you get them? I can't imagine there is, but who's knows what secret sauce goes into these things.

Re: Clearout - some free

I can't justify taking it, but for a very long time I wanted an Audiolab 8000A SO MUCH! It was *the* desirable amp upgrade when I was getting into this hobby, and everything about it appealed to me. Deep down I'm still sorry I never had one.
