FS: McIntosh MC275 Version V (5) -Price drop

Recommended Posts

Quote from CigarBum....


"""McIntosh 275, Purchased from Audio Classics just a few years back, Amp is in wonderful condition, aside from a little dust performs perfect. The tubes that are presently in the amp are the Shungling Treasure, rated very high, they have about 100 hours on the. Everyone who has listened to them are very impressed"""

"""Along with the 275 are few extra tubes, I think the KT88 are Penta. All the small tubes are vintage"""

 

I've heard this amp on his Khorns with the current installed tubes.  Very impressive.

 


Tubes currently in the Amp


KT88-Z Shungang treasures...an example

Yes there is a noticeable scratch on the left side transformer.....I'm betting from somebody wearing a watch when picking it up.  Hardly noticeable scratch on right side transformer.  I don't notice anymore scratches.  However, I'm not saying there aren't any.


I have wiped of dust.  That is all.

 

I'm not testing the "extra tubes".  I don't know where they are from.  I don't know where the installed tubes are from.  The unit came with tubes from AudioClassics.  I'm assuming the McIntosh Line tubes and the 4 extra KT88's pictured in the foam are from Audioclassics.

 

I ordered a brand new shipping box from McIntosh.

 

$3500 $3200 shipped fedex ground insured.  I prefer a personal check cleared or PP friends.

I was at Bob’s the week this arrived, surprised it has a scratch as he took great care of everything. I pray he is well.

He is.

 

That scratch may have been there all along from when he got at Audioclassics.  Never noticed before.  Wasn't till I was videoing the unit when I saw it.

 

Again, it looks like a spot from somebody wearing a watch when moving.  

 

I would easily buy this....but I already own 4 of these.  One of the best amps out there.

I purchased this amp from James, who was kind enough to hold amp for me until I was able to secure funds to pay for it.  I received amp yesterday and tubes today.  I'm extremely pleased with cosmetic condition of amp and am listening to it now.  I have it paired with a McIntosh C22 preamp (also purchased from Klipsch Forum) and a pair of Altec Valencia speakers.  I believe this combination should sound quite nice.  Can't say enough good things regarding buying from James - as my experience has been with every transaction on this forum - it has been extremely positive.
