Why would this unit still have warranty?
If this is from a dealer, I think he wants it gone. If I were that dealer and re-coop my investment plus a few hundred (est. 2800-2900) I would have trouble not smiling for a week. If its not a dealer then you won't have a warranty, I think 25-2700 is fair market. You can pay a little more but if it not a dealer it is not a retail piece.

That is my opinion, if it were my investment.

Even if it is a dealer, there may be no warranty, too old. Some companies will limit the time based on dealer invoice date. Not sure if McIntosh does this. If not a dealer, no warranty, for sure.
You might have 2 years warranty If your the 1st owner..Call Audio Classics and ask them they are in Vestal NY. You can ask about value as well.
Thanks
If you cab acquire the serial number, call McIntosh. They would be the warrantor. Yes Audio Classics may give you a good feel for value. Actually I would eMail McIntosh so you have a documented source should they offer warranty. Chuck Hinton is always very helpful.
The 120 watt MA6500 is the same value as the 100 watt model it replaced (MA6300) ?? .. As those sell for $2500-3000 used on ebay(not NOS) .
The MA6300 is a current model, therefore it is more expensive. I've seen MA6500's between $2,000 and $2,500 in audiogon, ebay and craigslist. A lot of them in like new condition.
About the warranty, the amp is too old so it doesn't apply anymore (even if you never filled the form).
I thought the 100 watt..41 lb..MA6300 Integrated Amp was the previous model but I was mistaken..it is the current entry level model.
Still,.. a 120 watt..55lb.. MA6500 unused is worth more than a used MA6300 simply because it is a better amp.
Hi Athana,

Forget about this amp. I used to have it and sold it off within 6 months. Regretted buying it - there were a lot more negatives than positives. The dynamic headroom was rather limited - it doesn't get louder before things started to sound ragged with the soundstage collapsing. Just my humble personal experience.
