Feedback: The McIntosh c26 arrived safe and on time. Thanks for the great service. The preamp is beautiful; Audio Classics does amazing work on these vintage pieces. I've enjoyed listening tonight. So far it is sounding great with my tube amp. B.P., AL
Just wanted to say thanks and let you know how thrilled I am with the MC2505. What a stunning compliment to the C26! I started braking it in last night with some vintage Miles Davis. What a treat! Thanks again to you and to Audio Classics for the outstanding service. This is my second purchase from you guys within the past year and I'll definitely be back! M.O., PA
Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed my first visit to Audio classics. You have a terrific store and a very friendly, professional staff. Ryan did a great job "tuning up" my C26 and MC2105. Sorry I missed Bailey! JM, NJ
I reinstalled my C26 into my system ...and have had it on constantly since then. Thanks again for the incredible service. After the overhaul it sounds noticeably clearer and with the new gold I/O RCA jacks, faceplate, and side trim you’d never guess it was manufactured in 1972. The work you did was top notch and after such fantastic service and unbelievably quick turnaround time, I would never take my precious gear anywhere but Audio Classics. C.Z, NY
Just a note to thank you you and the rest of the staff at audioclassics for the very, very good service you all gave me regarding my purchase of the McIntosh c26 pre amplifier, it really is in exceptional condition. ...again many many thanks for the very pleasant way that you and all at audioclassics treated me, it has been a real pleasure doing business with you all.and i hope to continue doing business with you in the future. Kindest Regards J.H. Australia
I have always wanted a MAC power amp but could not afford it at the time (1979). I recently had been looking for a MC2125 for about 4 months but none were listed anywhere. So when I saw the unit listed on your website, I felt it was time to upgrade my system. Your shipping and packing were excellent. The amp came in perfect condition as described. Today I finished the permanent installation of the amplifier and have had time to really do some critical listening. The sound from the MC2125 is all that I had expected and more. It nicely compliments the C26 preamp that I have had since 1977. I have listened to some of my favorite records and CDs, from jazz to classical and have heard things that I never knew existed on these recordings. J.C., IL.
....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 am am very pleased with the MC2155 amplifier and the C26 preamp , They look new and perform flawlessly. Thanks, T.B., MD

I am very happy with the C26 preamplifier and MQ101 equalizer that I purchased from you. J.A., VT.
I received my C26 McIntosh preamp, ... I was very impressed. Your staff has proven to be extremely helpful and courteous. I will do business with you again without a doubt. M.M. VT
I recently purchased a MacIntosh C26 from your company... I am extremely satisified with my purchase and your assistance. I will definitely recommend your company to my friends and associates for their high end audio purchases. R.H., IL.
...once again thank you so much for your help and expert advice, I love the c-26 ..... please relay my thanks to the shipping room as their magic in making things unbreakable worked again, thank you to all at audio classics, a totally pleasant way to do business.....most warm regards, J.H., NY
