Here up for sale just as we received it. This was in dry and unused storage for ?.. decades as far as I can tell. It was shipped to me in unknown operational condition. I have installed good test old stock tubes some original McIntosh branded and a new grounded power cord. I have slowly powered up on a variac. I found that I had some slight hum noise from the power supply and I have installed a temporary under chassis electrolytic cap to minimize the hum and get clean DC It’s near dead quiet now, the unit has now been run at full power and plays fine with no issues found. I would recommend that the power supply electrolytic’s be replaced if a person wishes to use this as a daily music amplifier.This unit is clean for its age. Some light scrapes and light dings, along with some paint wear as evident in the photos on the main amplifier chassis. This model was produced from 1951 – 1955 a total of 3068 units were produced. This units serial number is worn off by some past persons cleaning. The early McIntosh logos are clean and bright with very minor damage.It is sold as is, but functional. A McIntosh classic, this is the second model series that McIntosh ever produced.Price firm plus shipping $ 1500.00. (Original owners manual included) Just to mention how rare this is, This is only the third one I have seen in 31 years
