Product: McIntosh C34V Audio/Video Control Center Preamplifier and Amplifier

Functional Notes: The unit was just serviced by Bristol Electronics in September 2019.  Works 100% as it should.

Cosmetic Description: 
This control center unit has an excellent appearance with few minor scuffs / Cabinet has few minor scuffs / You will not find another unit as nice as this one.


First of all, it is a very flexible unit as a AV control center and music preamplifier.  Also, it has a built in 20 -25 watts monitor amp which is very useful which I used to run my second speaker set. The built in equalizer is pretty handy as well although I kept them in the center at all the time for the natural pure sound.
