The McIntosh 2205 is known for its effortless, clean power, lots of power. Whether one unleashes the MC2205 to shake the walls or controls it to allow quiet conversation, the sound is precise throughout the frequency range.
My dad's treasured stereo system had this MC-2205 paired with a Marantz tube preamp, getting input from either a Dual turntable or Tandberg reel to reel, and driving a pair of McIntosh cabinet speakers. Any visitor to the house was treated to music from dad's stereo - listeners uniformly marveled at the jaw dropping power matched with the warmth and clarity of sound. I always imagined and felt like I was standing in the middle of a live concert.
My dad was the owner. Since he passed in 1991, the amp has been kept in storage. Here follows a link to view and download the owner's manual: https://usermanual.wiki/Mcintosh/McintoshMc2205UsersManual771570.354820907
