Feedback: A museum quality MCD7007 just acquired sings in a bedroom system consisting of C33V, MC2205, and XR5s. McIntosh remains unparalled for sound quality and reliability—Steve and all at Audio Classics set an unparalleled standard for service, product knowledge, and general good-guyness. And—Jane .... is the Wife of the Century! T.B., VA
would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for a job very well done in the restoration of my C28, MC2205 and MR78 some time back...........The strapped pallet shipped back to me was so beautiful, I didn't want to open it up right away.......Your shipping technique is unmatched...........Nothing short of an explosion or fire could cause any damage to units shipped via your packing methods..........All is well and the units are looking and sounding, at least to my ears, like they did in 1973.........Thanks again for making the decision to have you ship them back to me a "no-brainer"........... I also very much enjoyed the book about the Amplifier Clinics, of which I took advantage a few times at Stuart's Audio in Westfield, NJ. J.G., PA
Thanks so much for everything. All is set up and sounds amazing. Almost broke my back going up three flights of stairs with the amp, but it was worth it. M.D., NY
Thanks to Mike at Audio Classics, this beauty arrived perfectly safe in its triple box(1). Mint mint mint! A really beautiful one. ... I can say that together with the C48 preamp and the PMC EB1i, it sounds incredibly beautiful. Pure McIntosh sound: velvet smooth. Detailed. Non fatiguing. Natural. Tubey. Vintage sound. Probably a bit sweeter than today's amps but really just a bit and does not seem colored at all. I love it a lot. M.B., FL
(The MC2205) amp arrived alive and well early this afternoon. Very nice unit, if this is B condition, A must be mint flawless. Exceeds my expectations, you really have to look hard to find anything bad about this guy. Packaging was excellent and obvious that you guys have done this before. The outer box looked a little beat up and i was a little nervous until I opened it up and found two more boxes for buffers. Nicely done. Owners manual was unexpected and a very welcome touch. Thank you. All in all Mike it was a pleasure doing business with you and the next time I am in the market for something, I will check you people first. Anyway, thank you ... J.S. NV
....have not talked to you in a while. But as I listen to my system I can not thank the staff at Audio Classics enough. I still marvel at the quality of the sound. But then again, its a McIntosh. G.B., IN.
I never would have believed how much difference an amp would make in my system. As a long time Audiokarma guy I always bought the wisdom that the speakers are the first place to spend money, and sources are second. I now know better! I really appreciate the service I've received from you (and the gang on Saturday, when I picked up the box). The amp sounded and looked way, way better than it did during my first visit, I believe new gels or equiv were done to the meters, since instead of faded and streaky they are now ballsy Mac blue. The unit really looks like it just drove off the factory lot instead of being 30 years old. THANKS!!! I can tell you one thing... I am done messing with Audiogon, eBay and CraigsList for used audio. You guys simply make those choices obsolete. Once again, thanks and I hope to see you guys again soon. C.L., NY
Just wanted to say how pleased I am with how things turned out on the Mac tuner and amp. Got everything hooked up and the system never sounded better. Your packaging for return shipment of the amp and tuner was super. My thanks to everyone at Audio Classics who made this happen. Hope to work with you folks again. J.D., MD
Thanks for following up with the info on my equipment (MC2205 and C28). You might be surprised at how few places have the selection of equipment I am used to, can repair what I already have, and where the people are friendly and actually know what they are talking about. I look forward to doing more business with Audio Classics in the future. Thanks again for your help. J.M., NJ
I am delighted that the McIntosh made the long journey, and it performing well. V.A., Vietnam
