Greetings, I have an opportunity to purchase a single McIntosh MC 60 for $500.00. I have been looking to get a tube amp for some time now but I wasn't really thinking of going with monoblocks. I haven't had the chance to see the amp yet so I don't know what the cosmetics are like, it has been described as "decent" looking and "working fine". I know nothing about the MC60, can anyone tell me if there's anything in particular I should be looking for on this model McIntosh? At$500.00 it seems to be a decent buy if it's in good working order. Any comments are welcome.
finding a second 'single' amp in good condition might be tough...most used mc60's are out there in pairs, and nice pairs cost a lot. i would talk to the folks at audio classics before you buy ...audioclassics.com
Please be careful buying one MC60 since you need a matched pair. Please see www.mcintoshaudio.com. They have MC60's for sale but at a much higher price. In addition to www.audioclassics.com referenced above, you should also contact The Stereo Shop at www.thestereoshop.com. cheers..
