THE Harman Kardon Citation XX amplifier - an extremely rare 1980's vintage tour-de-force amp designed by Dr. Matti Ottala (RIP), a world renowned and influential electronics engineer in many fields. The Citation XX was Harman Kardon's cost-no-object masterpiece project and an absurdly expensive loss leader at the time. Dr. Ottala's state of the art circuit design, premium cosmetics and super build quality resulted in a very low production run, however, in terms of build quality and sound? Well, some people say the Citation XX is the holy grail of vintage transistor amplifiers.

This Citation XX is showing some wear and tear but overall very presentable and 100% operational. Included are printed copies of the owner's manual, a printed schematic and a white paper document from Harman Kardon. This is a domestic Japanese model (@100V) but a 2,000 WATT step-down transformer is included at asking price for safe & reliable operation. Please review all the pictures and ask questions. The price reflects the less than perfect cosmetics.

Due to the size & weight I would prefer a local pickup (Pointe-Claire, Montreal) but I can deliver as far as 300 Km to the east or west of Montreal (Ottawa, Belleville, Brockville, Kingston, Quebec City, etc). Shipping can be arranged at the buyer's expense but won't be cheap, starting at about $150+ for Eastern Canada. I prefer cash, Interac / EMT or PayPal plus 3%.

250 WPC @ 8 Ohm / 450 WPC @ 4 Ohm, 42 Kg / 93 lbs unpacked

Thanks for looking.
