    Well, I’m 68, and just walked (barely, with all that weight!!) in the door with an MC 2105 amp, and this is my very first piece of McIntosh ever! I am awaiting an MX-113 preamp/tuner that I purchased 2 days ago, but is still in transit. I am so excited and can’t wait to hook up my newly upgraded system! Really looking forward to listening to my new system, took a long, long time to join the club, but that makes it all the sweeter!

    I was 39. I heard Mcintosh and like the sound but just had never bought one. Started with the MC252 and kept upgrading till MC501s. Saving for the MC611 which should take me into retirement.

    Thanks! The service manual is a bit above my ability as I have a only rudimentary understanding of electronics and reading schematics. I am looking for more of a "how to". Like: remove two screws on both left/right sides near front bezel. Remove two screws on top/bottom....

    It was much easier than I thought it would be. I replaced all bubs except the wheat bulbs and it looks fantastic! I'm putting together a simple how-to and will post it for future noobs.

    I was 24 when I bought my MC2100 to drive a pair of Janszen Z-824's (1974)
