I don't know about the 2003, but I have the HCA2205A. I've had it for 11 years. I don't know what the 2003 was new, but the 2205A was $2k. Seems that $500 for a 3 channel might be a bit high.
Power amps rarely go belly up. More often a pre-amp or processor will. I've got a '79 Citation 19 power amp I'm still using as well.
