I am the original owner of this MC252. It has been babied as a center channel amplifier in a smoke, child and pet-free environment. Never driven hard. I have five MC2255 power amplifiers in my theater and I just bought a sixth so I am selling this MC252 so I have a consistent look in the system. The 252 is virtually perfect. Clean and powerful (minimum 250 watts per channel). I have the original box, terminal covers and manual. I have shipped over a dozen McIntosh products without one incident of damage. You will love this amplifier. No issues. Please call me at 618.615.0306 if you would like to discuss the amplifier.
