Up for sale is a McIntosh C29 Preamplifier that was restored by Absolute Sound Labs in May 2016. Unit is in very good condition with some oxidation on one of the side panels and some of the RCA jacks have wear but function as it should. No issues with the front panel. Take a look at the pictures and ask questions.
This was paired with the MC2200 that I also have for sale. Will work a deal if you want both items.
Notes of restoration -
Disassemble and evaluate. Found defective power supply, dirty controls and switches, dim lamps and loose PCB mounting. Perform complete restoration. (See Note on Lamps). Poly coat panel assemblies. Re-assemble and burn-in for 72 hours, QC and Cosmetic.
Service Note -
Dial Lamps on B/O from Factory. Will be installed at N/C
