McIntosh C35 Preamplifier in beautiful condition. i only rated it a 7 due to the Audiogon grading system. if i was describing it to someone, i would rate it a 9. It has a couple barely noticeable nicks around the front edge. These are VERY Minor. This preamp is super clean and looks outstanding. There is a bit of dimness on the left side probably due to some bulbs being out. I'm including three replacement bulbs that I received when i purchased the preamp. Everything works great with the only minor exception being that the remote can sometimes make the volume jump 2 or 3 increments instead of 1. This preamp has an outstanding phono section! It also has gold plated inputs and outputs and optional balanced outputs. Detailed info can be found at the Berner's site: http://mcc.berners.ch/pre-amplifiers/C35.pdf . it will be shipped in a double mcintosh box built specifically for the C-35. Shipping will be a flat $40.00 to the lower 48. The box is pretty large. It will be shipped via FEDEX.
