Just traded, this MC275 mkV is super clean and ready to perform. Regarded by a lot of audio enthusiasts as one of the best engineered tube amplifiers ever... at any price. Regarded by professionals with awards such as 2017 Stereophile Recommended Component, 2017 Absolute Sound Editors Choice, 2016 Golden Ear, on and on. Even the very latest build only made subtle cosmetic changes and a few upgrades like gold plated tube sockets, the chrome chassis with upgraded to polished stainless steel, and large solid 5-way binding posts. Why mess with perfection?
We don't see these too often as owners tend to hold onto them. Here's a wonderful opportunity to add a piece of audio history to your collection.
The case has no damage. The tube covers are straight and true. The paint is good overall and the steel case is free of any rust or oxidation. There are a couple letters missing on some of the silk-screening, but this is a common issue with these. Overall a beautiful piece.
