This amplifier is pure vintage at it's best! This amplifier and the matching preamplifier I have up right now (C22) were obtained from my best friends dad a few years ago when he was clearing out his house for a move. He was the original owner since 1965! Non smoking house, locked away in a cabinet, arizona (no rusting) - both of his pieces look great.
His old tubes were shot so I purchased a brand new set of TungSol tubes and took the MC240 to the closest McIntosh authorized service center to have the amp entirely gone over - some capacitors, etc. were replaced and the amp is in perfect working order.
It has some McIntosh service stickers on the case, but is very clean and has no rusting/pitting and comes with the tube cage and will ship in an audioclassics box.
Please let me know if you have any other questions. I have the matching C22 also up right now on audiogon! They would love to go to the same house!
