Unfortunately if you get another refurbished MC225, you'll probably end up in the same boat eventually due to their age and natural deterioration. Before you give up entirely on the MC225, I would recommend you first give it 30 - 60 days to break in. Then, I would ask the people that did the work what they think and if they have any suggetions on possibly different caps, etc. that they could try. Another suggestion is to contact Terry Dewick, who is a very well respected Mac guru and get his opinion. Finally, if none of that works for you, yes consider another amp. FYI, I had a MC225 for about 6 years and sold it to go SS. BIG mistake! I found out that tubes are where it is at for me. I'm currently using a Music Reference RM 10 MK II and I'm very happy with it. Not really tubey, but honest! Good luck and Happy New Year!
