Well as you might of guessed we like McIntosh gear actually we really really really like McIntosh gear (yes even if it doesn’t have tubes : – ), it’s one of the few audio products that has consistently produced excellent sounding and visually stunning components.
What we have here is a Mint Condition C28 Pre-Amp MR-74 Tuner and a MC2105 Power Amp all of them are in need of a good cleaning, with the exception of the MC-2105 which will need new glass because this one has the typical de-lamination / bubbling on the inside of the glass. Also a bit of trivia, the MC2105 was used on stage by Bob Weir one of the members of the Grateful Dead back in the late 70′s and early 80′s. How Cool Is That?
Check back soon to see them brought back to their original specs and appearance and if you are interested in purchasing them feel free to send us an offer.
Very nice and clean C28 Mcintosh Pre-amp before restoration
A very Nice McIntosh MC-2105 Amp in an original wooden case, too bad there are bubbles on the glass
Now that I have this I will be listening to FM now. A minty MR74 before restoration.

We are in restoration process of a pair of MC60′s, that when complete will be as nice as the ones pictured or just a tad bit cleaner!. Be the one to reserve this pair for you, all it takes is a deposit to reserve them. We estimate final completion by April 30, 2012.. the pictured pair you see is a set we completed just a while back.
I wanted to get you a picture that would be fully represetative of this pair now in process. The work will be all power supply caps replaced, power supply fully rebuilt, precision matched critical circuit resistors will be 1% low noise metal film types. The audio signal path capacitors will all be matched Mylar (orange dips), all small signal tubes NOS test as new Telefunkins or RCA for drivers. Rectifiers all NOS test 5u4 types. Output tubes matched new issue Tung-Sol 6550′s. This is a full rebuild not just a few parts thrown in. Once complete a rigorous 30 hour burn in QC process begins, all voltages will be referenced to original McIntosh specifications. Finally the sound?.. Fabulous McIntosh 100%
These will go soon, act now $ 4500.00 (the pair)
Thanks, the “Tubology Team”
4-15-2012. We have a pending sale, I will change this to sold when we receive the deposit funds.
4-18-2010 They are now gone and in process of restoration for their new home. We always have more gear, don’t be shy inquire
and we have one of these for sale if you are interested and yes they do sound better
Pictured a McIntosh C20 pre-amplifier. Note the full compliment of Telefunkin tubes all NOS test! It came in with an intermittent noise in both channels. A few caps later along with some proper contact cleaning and a bit of “Tubeology” work with selection/match of the Telefunkin’s and our proprietary tube socket and pin contact enhancing process (DNA) It’s sounding stunning! In audiophile terms, “fast, transparent, detailed, deep and layered sound-stage, engaging”
We should have photos up soon, but I wanted to get these listed as they will go fast, you can by deposit reserve them now and we will build them to whatever restoration level you would like from just clean up and parts as needed to make nice functional units or more extreme, designer audiophile parts, special chrome and paint etc. To full “Maxx” restorations. We have just acquired the following (2) McIntosh MC60 Mono’s in a cosmetic condition of 8.5 out of 10 (1) McIntosh C20 in a cosmetic condition of 8 includes nice McIntosh wood cabinet. (1) McIntosh MR65 stereo FM tuner in a condition of 7.5
email us if you have interest in reserving any of these fine classics.. Thanks Pat~
