Second owner, smoke and pet-free household. This amp was purchased as a DNA-1. It was upgraded with what would have previously been known as the SMC Gold Special upgrades (everything has been done except the balanced inputs, redundant double-PCB board damping and some super expensive cap swaps)
The amp was also refinished with a fresh powder coat and the front face of the amp which had previously had a scratch was fixed and freshly badged and powder coated as well. Cosmetically the amp is just about perfect (some evidence of wear on the old, unused speaker taps, but of course these are no longer hooked up and new high-quality ones were fitted by SMC) Everything inside is in perfect working order and any caps, fuses and other pparts were replaced and refreshed after the SMC upgrades. In total, about $2800 of work was put into the amp which originally was purchased for about $1000. Original price circa 1995 was $1995, adjusted for inflation is around a $4-5000 amp in 2019.
Sonics are superb on this amp - the McCormack midrange sweetness is still there, but all the technicalities in the bass and treble are tighter and much improved, and competitive with amps costing much more. Used gently and never abused, and comes with a small bag of replacement fuses.
The unit is listed at 8/10 because the person I purchased it from did not supply the original box. I have a box that fits the unit and will pack it securely and safely with plenty of extra packing material.
