I just had my 70th birthday, my hearing is really going downhill but I am still a sucker and look for McIntosh bargains when I find them. It's getting harder now. My wife thinks I'm nuts and wants me to sell some. Being a retired EE I try to restore them, usually recapping (except aligning tuners) but have on several occasions made blunders that Terry D. had to correct. This obsession started with my first Mac MR73 in 1970 and hasn't stopped since. That tuner cost me $550 new on a gross salary of about $11K during my first job. While in college during the 68-69 time frame, I kept writing to Mac for literature on different units and they sent me owner's manuals and service manuals for about ten different, then current, amp and tuner models which I still have and use. I was born and lived in Chicago most of my early life and spent more time and money at Allied Radio than I can count although the tuner was purchased at Del Padre in MA.
