    I'm a brand new McIntosh owner, haven't even hooked up the equipment yet. Learning from my daughter about the analog vs. digital boat that I had missed, I started looking for good analog equipment a couple of months ago. Finally found a tuner and integrated amp on Craigslist---MR77 and MA6100---pristine with perfect wood cases for $750. UPS delivered them to me Friday afternoon. After wiping the drool off of 'em, I noticed that there are no feet on either case. In looking at photos, I see that an angled wood leg may have been used. But when searching for "McIntosh foot", I get hits showing a hard plastic screw-on leg. Can someone tell me what is original? I'm afraid to use them until raising them for ventilation, so I need to do something pretty quickly, but I'd prefer original. I'm a cabinet maker, so I can fabricate wood if that's what they're supposed to have.

    My walnut cabinets have slanted legs on them. The plastic ones are used when the units are used out of the wooden case. They screw in to the bottom of the unit. Enjoy your new toys! :music:

    If you can't find them or make them - check out the link in the AK ad list for the McIntosh Cabinets maybe he can get you some.

    Older cabinets had slant legs

    The older McIntosh cabinets had the wooden "slant legs". Later, they had the plastic feet. I don't know what Vintage your cabinets are, but whatever the case, the plastic feet may be your easiest fix-unless you would just really prefer the slant legs. I would sugget you give Ryan at Audio Classics a call-at the very least he'll be able to fix you up with the plastic feet.

    There is a link to the AC website a the bottom of the AudioKarma pages.

    Good luck and enjoy your new toys!

    Aaah. That makes sense. I'll go ahead and fabricate my own from wood then. I've been a furniture and cabinet maker for 30 years, so I don't think there'll be a problem matching up what McIntosh used originally.

    Thanks, guys.

    After getting this additional info, I looked again at the bottom of the cases. There is the very faintest perceptible impression on the case indicating a round leg with a diameter of approximately 1 1/8", held in place by a screw coming up through the leg into the bottom of the case. I'll holler at Ryan and see if he can supply me. Thanks.

    We need to make this a "Sticky", most of us always wonder what model fits our equipment.

    Need to add the cabinet list to the "Hints and Kinks" sticky, that is if I ever get some free time.

    I'll make this thread a sticky for now. I'll try and come up with an idea for a sticky thread for saving this type of info.

    Thanks for making this a sticky, the cabinet list is extremely helpful, however, a lot of sellers on Ebay does not know the model number and will only give the dimension.

    If we could add the dimension to those models (either outer or inner) would make the list perfect.

    I am in the market for a cabinet for my new to me 7270. How do I know if I need the L54 or L62?

    I believe the L54 cabinet fits the MC7272. The McIntosh book shows the L54 for units with a 7 1/8" high front panel.
