Good source for ACC Amps?

Hi Guys

I know most folks despise this little ACCII system, but I want to keep mine intact.  Anybody have a solid reference for good used VDO Amps?

Cheers

Thanks.
Can anyone vouch for the longevity of his rebuilds?  Seems like these amps don't last no matter what you do :o

George Murphy is no longer in business as of this past summer. 

I don't recommend buying a used amplifier.  A bad one will fry the servo, and vice versa.  Even is one were to find a good used one, it can be likened to buying a used light bulb.  It may last a day, or it may last for a year.  It's not worth the risk considering how expensive the servos are. 

Here are a few places you can buy them from, both new and rebuilt:

Thanks Aaron think I'll try the Programa one, at least it has a warranty, for what it's worth...

Too bad a bout george,  His company made many good products across several MB models.

I have also bought from programa a couple times without issues. They used to sell on eBay without the core charge.

I have several available for sale. I went the route of the ACC digital upgrade and won't go back.

I have an aluminum bodied servo available as well.

Market prices.
