McIntosh MC30 Rebuild – Chassis Shots

Well, 2 installments in 2 days – WOW a record, I just started to gather parts, and I just got confirmation from the parts distributor that my Caps are on the way along with some of the odd value resistors that I didn’t have in stock. I also ordered a few different types of high end tube sockets, I wanted to see which ones looked / fitted the best in the chassis. I will be posting some photos of those as soon as they arrive. in the meantime here are a few more photos.

Once I have figured out a price for the ultimate pair of MC30’s I will be posting it but in the meantime you are free to contact me with any questions or requests along with any offers for the completed pair.

SHAME, SHAME on YOU!

I dislike having to post anything negative. But I feel it’s my duty to warn consumers when a business goes bad!

I’m speaking here about a company called Welborne Labs,  http://welbornelabs.com/   I had ordered some parts and products from them over a month ago and promptly paid on my credit card. Fast forward to today. I have made dozens off attempts to contact them via email and by telephone on the status of my paid for order. To date I have received no replies. I do know they are receiving my emails, this is verified. They continue to send updated “specials” on their newsletter. So I would assume they are alive and well?. Are they just scamming unsuspecting people into making orders and paying for them with the intent to not ship any product?.. I do not know.. But I would say stay away from them. I will keep you all informed if I do hear from them and any resolution is forthcoming. I’m having my credit card company revese my charges at this time

This summers projects in the works, I’m open for a deposit on a McIntosh MC240 that is now in the process of restoration. This unit will be MINT, a “10” it gets a full new chrome chassis along with a total electronics rebuild and a warranty. $ 1,000 deposit secures it. The total price plus shipping is $ 5300.00

Next we have a Marantz 8B. This unit will clean up and be near a 9.5 in cosmetics, electronics will be rebuilt. The deposit on this one is $ 1,000 and the total price plus shipping is $ 3250

OK, I have more.. a few Fisher 500b/c’s and 800’s. An Eico HF-81, A McIntosh c20, yes C20! price yet TBD. But it will get a full face lift and all electronics rebuilt. Lot’s more stay tuned.

With vacation season upon me, times vary for finish of projects, If you are considering having me repair/rebuild any components for you contact me ASAP so I can get you in the “Q”

Happy summer, enjoy

A special audio experience “The Classic McIntosh C20”

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”front of 20c mcintosh pre-amp
