Feedback: I have much respect for Audio Classics, Ryan and the late Frank Gow from whom I purchased (at least) my McIntosh C22 Commemorative, MC275 Marantz 10B Apogee Slant 8's. Yes, I am old and began "Hi-Fi" when the Fisher 80C was a big deal. I spent a number of years in location classical master recording and there are still a few CD's (what's a CD?) out there I recorded. I also am privileged to hear the best sound extant, since I still conduct a 45 piece Symphonic Wind Ensemble. Bottom line - Audio Classics is THE place for audio needs. I may have as well as the best perspective of audio down through the years beginning with "High Fidelity" in the 1950's. I don't usually take the time to write stuff like this, but wanted you know there are those of us still out there who appreciate your existence, even beyond the selling of audio equipment. J.W. NY
I received the MC275 amp yesterday, and am enjoying it while I type. Thank you very much for the speedy service, and answering all my questions. Even more impressive is finding out you're the son of Gordon J. Gow former President of McIntosh Labs, Inc. I was wondering if the name was any relation, then saw that on the Audioclassics web site. How cool! Your family's work has produced much joy in the world -- Thank you very very much :) L.H., WA
I got my large package from Audio Classics yesterday evening! A nice sparkly McIntosh MC275 mkIV. I have it hooked up next to my modded Dynaco ST-70. I wanted to do a side by side comparison of the two amps. I do realize now the naivety of that statement. Since firing up the MC last night, I forget, what was that other amp? I haven't even had the desire to power up the Dynaco, which I do consider to sound pretty good. No comparison is right! I may have found my keeper amp, among many other very nice amps. It's hooked up to my C-27 presently but will happily be mated with a C-220 at some point. I may take a detour with an MX-110 though, those look kind of cool. I'm sure the C-220 will be the victor in many ways but I love that old tube stuff too. We'll see. So much for comparison shopping. AudioKarma member
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you ... once again for doing business the way it should be done. Maybe it speaks volumes that my dealings with you are remarkable at all. That I should be surprised and pleased to be treated fairly and with integrity. I’m not a religious man but I guess it really does boil down to treating others that way you wish to be treated, and I thank you for that. My new [other] amp is all that I expected from a Mac amplifier and sounds like what I was expecting from the first one. Thanks for hanging in there with me and making sure I was treated in the end as a customer who was laying down some hard earned cash and deserved to get the most out of what I had purchased. Take care until the next time I need some top notch equipment!! B.M., MA
Your expert, brilliant recommendations on designing my system; the VPI, the MX114, the Classic Mc275 and the B&Ws have provided us with countless hours of sheer musical pleasure. In over 30 years, you've never steered me wrong. You are a joy to deal with & a true Master. S.G., NY
So this is what it’s supposed to sound like! I knew I wanted one for a good reason but I was starting to forget what it was.Thanks so much for sending a working, great sounding amp. I did not want to write to soon but I have been listening for about a week and so for I am extremely pleased! I’m not sure but I swear this amp sounds better than the first one even when it “worked” that first week I had it. Maybe the difference between the 6550’s and the KT88’s? I don’t know. Thanks again, all’s well that ends well! B.M. MA.
...the Mc 275 sounds gorgeously with the Tannoy TD-10. ... I enjoy very much to hear my favorite CD-s with the new detail the Mc 275 brought in - the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto sounds already breathtaking - .... So we are very happy with this product and the support you've provided for us. Wishing you great success in your business. All the best, F.K. Hungary
I just wanted to say thank you once again for the great deal you gave me on the MC275/C220 combo to replace my MA6900. Even though my wife was on vacation last week I could barely get out of my listening chair to go anywhere… the sound of that tube combo is absolutely magic and it keeps getting better as the components burn in! The MA6900 is a great piece but the MC275 is out of this world with the La Scalas! The C220 is just a superior instrument indeed… and the phono section… WOW. I have an old AR table with an Audio Techinica 440mla cartridge running through that phono section on the 220… it is unbelievably good. I have yet to hook the Scheu TT with Grado Sonata up to the 220… I just can’t get over the sound of that less $200 AR/440mla set up through the 220! It is a great all around preamp; I love the infinite volume and the silent switching and quiet running of the combination. I had never heard KT88 tubes before… I am astounded by the 275’s power and articulation… the music seems to come from everywhere and with great detail. This is indeed a millennial amplifier! You have made it possible for me to have what I believe is the best sound possible with my ancillary equipment (as you know, mostly McIntosh from you!) and I am grateful for the super deal you gave me and for all the service you have provided me over the past few years. Whenever I go towards Binghamton the truck always wants to take the Old Vestal Road exit… must be in the steering… or is it the driver? Again, Thank You! ST, PA
.....I'm still smilin' every time my MC275 is turned on. I have listened to more than half of my CD collection thru it and I've heard things I had never noticed before... Hope to do business again soon. G.B., LA
MC275. The detail in the midrange seems better with the MC275-MKIV than what I remember of my old original one that I sold a few years ago. .... I will surely purchase a second matching MC275-MKIV in the next year so I can run them a mono blocks. .... I am presently listening to Kenny G's "I'm in the Mood" with the Mac and it sounds quite smooth. .....This was a great purchase and I hope that the Mac and the additional one that I will purchase from you will last me long into my retirement..... Your happy customer. S.S., WA.
I got the c-2200 installed and I could not be happier with the setup. I am totally thrilled with the MC-275, just like you said I would. Thanks again. J.C., NC
Thanks for the help with my system. You sold me a MC275-IV to go with my C2200......I love this combo. I will stop in and spend more money next time... T.A., NY
RE MC352 : This is one awesome amp!! Just what the B&W 801's needed to make them sound off. I am now using it for the low end with the MC275 driving the mid/highs.Just finished listening to Beethoven's Emperor piano concerto. The sound was fantastic, probably the best rendition I have heard. A.G., AR.
