Exceptional amplifier, amazing sound. See it in action here
McIntosh reconditioned this amp in August of 2010. The cost was $544. They:
* Set bias
* Cleaned glass
* Cleaned controls
* Repaired solder connections on the meter & driver boards
* Tested all functions
* Replaced lamps
* Replaced capacitors
* Replaced power switch
* LDR network
* Replaced the power supply printed circuit board
This amp has cosmetic flaws. Earlier in its life, it was serviced at two different audio shops in NYC. The flaws are:
* Wear consistent with age
* Flaws in the glass (only apparent up close)
* The left power guard LED is orange and should be green (this was probably from an earlier, non-McIntosh repair)
* There is some rust around two switches and in the housing around the fuse
* Two stickers affixed to the back of the unit
The average selling price, according to the Audiogon Blue Book is $1,300. This unit sounds perfect (and has been tested by McIntosh), so I am discounting by $200 for cosmetic flaws.
* MC-2155 amplifier
* double-box shipping carton from McIntosh
* Reprint of the manual
Local pickup preferred in Richmond, VA.
Shipping is a flat rate of $100
in the continental US
, and the utmost care will be used when packaging in the McIntosh shipping carton. The unit will also be fully insured.
