This is not so much a dreamer, but a fake amp....look at the photos carefully, especially rear panel. Nasty cheap knock-off.

Ok, yes - this has been posted before.

I contacted the guy and said that I was interested, but would like to see photos of the internals in order to try "identify the amp".

He promised to do so, but obviously not. A few days later, I did get an offer from him with the price reduced...   LOL LOL LOL

Yes, clever scam. He makes a point of saying he doesn't know the model number, so no mention of its power. Might just have a couple of 50 watt chip amps inside. 
Be seeing you.

Yup.

What got me was that he does have some decent stuff for sale there. So what the hell is he doing with an obviously fake Powersoft??

I saw this ad a few days ago while searching for older 4 ch Powersofts like LQ2804.
"Powersoft" at the front printed too big, but the rear is the dead giveaway.
Everything else this person sells, seems legit though...

Quite possibly yes. Given his "No returns, sold as-is" statement would lead me to think he knows that. Silly thing to do, if someone buys it and complains to ebay, he could have his account deleted for selling fake items.

Yes, it does seem like a stupid risk - especially with his 100% positive feedback - and given his other stuff. He'd be better just chucking it on something like Craigslist - under the  title "Fake Powersoft"!!
