The Amp is in excellent cosmetic and working condition and the tube cage is dent-free. Conservatively rated 8/10 for 1-2 very minor cosmetic flaws not visible from more than a foot away. In one of the pictures there appears to be a roughness on the bottom side edge which is actually dust I neglected to remove. Since the amp is packed double boxed I decided not to retake the picture and I’m currently prevented from lifting the 75 lb box due to recent surgery.
I also noticed that in one of the pictures there appears to be some scuffing on the autoformers; that is actually reflection from the KT88 power tubes reflecting onto the autoformers and distorting the picture. There are no scuffs or any defects on the autoformers.
The MC275 is rated at 75 Watts per channel; actual measured output is 90 watts per channel. Has both RCA and Balanced inputs. Weight: 67 pounds. Shipping weight: 75 lbs.
NOTE: Shipping costs have skyrocketed dramatically and the cost of shipping from my home in Denver to most places in the continental US with adequate replacement insurance is about $100.+ with either FedEx or UPS. I will cover the cost of shipping within the CONUS at my asking price. Lower offers, if accepted, I will cover 1/2 half shipping cost.
Asking price includes PayPal fees AND shipping within CONUS.
