Up for sale is my beautiful McCormack DNA HT5 5 channel amplifier. This amp is rated 125x5 @ 8ohm and 200x5 @ 4ohm all channels driven, but as all the reviews say, it seems like much more in use.
This amp was fully bench tested and biased by SMc (Steve McCormack's company) in November 2017 so you can rest assured it is in tip top shape electrically. I also had them replace all 5 binding posts with brand new ones as the previous owner had damaged a couple of them.
Cosmetically its in great shape. There is a small 1/4" nick in the front face and some tiny pin head nicks on the heat sinks. The nick on the face is only noticeable if it catches the light just right and none of the blemishes are visible from across a room. Aside from those two things its clean and in beautiful shape. I don't see any wear or discoloration in the finish and the silk screening is nearly perfect. Looking it over you could easily mistake it for a much newer amp. Conservative 7/10. This is probably the most well built amp I have ever owned. It’s a tank!
This amp is a great way to bring the McCormack sound to a home theater. Each channel of the HT5 is identicle to those the the highly regarded DNA125 which makes it one of the rare no compromise multichannel amps on the market. In fact, SMc thought the DNA HT5 might even output slightly more power into 1-2 channels than the DNA125 since it can take advantage of the portion of the power supply not being used by the remaining channels. This makes the HT5 quite a bargain compared to the other McCormack amps. The DNA HT5 is also, to my knowledge, the only McCormack amp equipped with 12v trigger.
In terms of sound quality this amp is all McCormack. Neutral tonality, impressive dynamics, incredible imaging, great detail, it really just disappears and lets you hear the music. The high degree of transparency results in movie soundtracks that sound real. There is a reason these have such a following.
Made in the USA.
Will ship in the original box, manual and power cord included.
I have 10 years of feedback with a perfect track record. I take care of my gear and always rate my items conservatively.
