Hey guys, thanks fo the great info.. They do sit on carpet, so that is a plus.. I do not have the jbl lens's on them. they were damaged. I just picked up a set on the bay. I think that will also help..
Yes i think the way to go is the bi-amping. I listen to mostly 70's and 80' rock and i like it loud.. All on vinyl.
I did get the Mcintosh gear, he told me to take it and play with it. It has been sitting in his attic boxed up for over 26 years. His stuff is from around 1968 it had some service info dated 1969. He has a mc 240 amp, a c 22 preamp, and a mr67 tunner, no wooden cases..
I made up a home made power supply from a box with a dimmer switch to a box with a receptacle to slowley bring the gear up to power. I took off all the covers and looked for anything that did not look right. Then powered it up ..
WOW what a difference the 240 made with the sound. The highs and mids are sweet. The bass is lacking when the volume is pushed, the reason to bi amp. But i can get a feal for what they have to offer, They are definitely NOT getting parted out..
I know the mc gear needs a full tune up by someone. I was thinking classic audio in NY i know nothing about them but have seen others talk about them. Do you guys have any sugestions. The amp worked great the pre amp powers up and all looks good but when i hook it to the amp i get a real lound hum no music. The amp sounded great with a low level adcom pre. Cant wait to hear it with a good pre. I have no clue what is wrong with the c22 pre. And the tunner powers up but has a cracked tube so i did not want to run it. All are a one owner set, and rate around high 7 to low 8 on a scale of 10 in looks. He wants $4,000.00 for all. I dont know with the c-22 not working right. Any thoughts??
