VERY RARE! NOT MANY MADE Old School Orion 225 HCCA Amp Amplifier 1st Gen 2nd Gen $150.00 Amplifiers Orion 05/19/2013
Orion, Amplifiers I listed this amp a year ago and I still have it and it has been sitting on my shelf ever since I took the pictures a year ago. The amp is in the same EXACT condition as the pictures from a year ago and I have made an updated Youtube video to not only show the amp works 100% but to show the amp hasn't changed a bit in a year. Sorry for the long paragraph below but this is a very rare amp and not many were available to the public and a lot has to be explained.

Ok here we go. The heat sink of this amp is a 2nd generation. The circuit board, side plates and bottom plate are a 1st generation. I recently listed this amp not knowing the history behind it but I have found out that when Orion was in the transition phase of the 1st generations and 2nd generations they had some leftover circuit boards, side plates and bottom plates so they made a select few to the public that were mounted in the 2nd generation Digital Reference heat sinks. I don't know exactly how many were made but I was told that it was under 100. Just look at my picture of the serial number, NONE of the 1st or 2nd generation serial numbers look like that. So if you are a true Orion collector you will already know this. As you can see in my pictures this 2nd generation heat sink for this amp has only 4 screw holes milled in it, which were made to fit a 1st generation Orion 225 HCCA circuit was NOT made to fit a 2nd generation Orion 225 HCCA circuit board! The holes that hold the circuit board down on a 1st generation 225 HCCA are in 100% completely different spots than the holes that hold a circuit board down on a 2nd generation 225 HCCA. As you can see this 2nd generation heat sink has NEVER been made to hold a 2nd generation circuit board because if it did....THERE WOULD BE DIFFERENT HOLES IN DIFFERENT SPOTS....or a total of 8 holes, 4 of them to hold a 1st generation circuit board and 4 of them to hold a 2nd generation circuit board. I also have a pic of another 225 HCCA that I used to have that show how the holes are in completely different spots.

With all that said, this amp isn't bridgeable unless you have the Orion 400 BDG bridging module because as we all now know after that long explanation above, lol, this is a 1st generation Orion 225 HCCA. It is in good condition with normal scratches that occur over time. There are 100% zero signs of any kind of repair and it is 100% original. Awesome collectible Orion amp :)
