I am acquiring a McIntosh MX113 Tuner/Preamp to drive my...

Recommended Posts

...McIntosh MC-2105 Power Amp driving my La Scalas, my Heresies and my JBL Control X weather resistant outdoor speakers, all switchable through my ADCOM 3 way speaker switch!

Here's the Craigslist AD for the preamp:

:-)

Finally, I'll have a Stereo version, more powerful version of my Daddy's Mono Record playing system I FAILED TO GROW UP WITH! He had a Pickering Turntable, a Mono McIntosh Preamp, and a Mono 20 watt Tube McIntosh amp into a 15" Altec Lansing speaker!! And that was the audio system I FAILED TO GROW UP WITH!

I'm gonna miss having more RCA line level inputs, like for my CD player, etc. But I will adapt! Any suggestions always helpful.

Definitely the AUX input is just a line level input(after phono preamps but before tone/volume controls). No problem plugging your CD player into it. The TAPE input may also be the same.

I sure you will love it as long as it is fully functional. Enjoy!

You have will have two line level inputs (tape and Aux), and you can use the tape monitor input for a third line level input. Or use a small external mixer with multiple inputs for extra line level sources and plug that into the Aux input. Denon makes a one U rackmount with 12 inputs for $179.

Of course, it's made in China... get one before the price goes up.

 

Musicians Friend has it for $149. ART makes an eight input stereo model (which may work better) for $185. There are lots of choices available.

Beautiful!! I KNEW there'd be a Line Level Multi to One Stereo RCA or other solution!! 1/4 Mono to RCAs are easy! 1/4 plug-in to RCA out!

:-)

Thank you!!

How many innies do you need?  Seems a shame to degrade the MAC equipment with some cheezeball mixer.

A PLUGGED IN connection is better than NO CONNECTION!

Just purchased the MX113 and took it straight to Alpha Tech and traded them that Toshiba Tuner for a priority job on my McIntosh MX113 Preamp and Tuner, putting rubber feet on it and lubing the Input Buttons! And just generally going through it and making sure everything works optimally! :-)

And I got a voicemail from AlphaTech that my McIntosh Preamp has been lubed up, checked for operation, properly FOOTED and is available for pickup, NC!

I am a VERY good customer! :-) I GAVE them a Toshiba tuner that were working on for me!  :-)
