I am selling:

(Sold) Marantz AV8802A processor - $1200, have remote, antennas, box
(Sold) Anthem MCA-20 2-channel amp - $400
Anthem MCA-50 5-channel amp - $800, have box
(Sold) Ascend Acoustics Sierra 2 w/RAAL ribbon tweeter - $600, have box

I noted some issues with sound dropout on the AV8802A on this forum and elsewhere; it was given a clean bill of health by a local shop. My own internet sleuthing points towards the HDMI board, but I opted not to replace it. The board is $400 retail and the quoted repair at the shop was $700 (including diagnostics and parts). Again, I did not replace it.

I tested the amps on my own and could not find any issues. The MCA-50 was rebuilt at Anthem in 2018. The MCA-20 has not been used in several years.

These items are heavy and shipping is probably not worth it; if interested, please DM and we'll see if a local (California) exchange is possible. I aim to price these to move and so I am also open to reasonable and serious offers. I can throw in balanced cables, power cords, etc. depending on needs.

Is the MCA-20 still available? Would you consider shipping it? Looking at USPS estimates the shipping price looks worth it to me.

For those interested, the AV8802A sold for $600, with the estimated repair cost for the HDMI board at $500. TBH, I'm happier with my Sonos Beam than I ever was with the AV8802A.
