    hallo to everyone, I am fairly new to AK, but I find it very interesting since I am the proud owner of two Mcintosh amplifier pairs, one C28/2105 and one C32/2125.

    Now to my questions (I have ordered two sets of 1" black plastic feet for both 2105 and C32, which still have no feet).

    2105: in this thread I have read there are two ways of attaching them: one through the 3 speed nut holes, and the other through the smaller holes located quite near the corners of the bottom. What is better?
    Furthermore, in the first case the plastic feet cover part of the metal tabs protruding from their holes, right? Is it OK? has anyone more experience in putting feet under the 2105?

    C32: it seems to have just the smaller holes near the corners. Did I miss anything, or these holes are the right ones?

    Sorry for these questions, but please have mercy of the newbies.

    Thanks in advance.

    Both C32 and MC2105 have 4 smallish holes near the corners, will take a #8 x3/4 or 1" sheet metal screw.

    Many thanks; I will try to find them in some online store in the USA since European screws have a different threading.

    Speaking of feet, the rubber feet on the MC2500 amplifier are toilet seat bumpers. When I needed to replace the feet on a MC2500 I acquired, it took me a long time to figure out where I had seen that rubber bumper. It was really annoying. I knew I had seen that "foot" somewhere, but just could not place it for the longest time. Talk about irritating....wow!

    What is the normal size rubber/plastic feet for say a MC2505 amp? I believe they are 3/4" diameter but what might the height be? Any after-market sources or options?

    I have an amp that was rack mounted and it has no feet/

    Have you checked with the factory and on eBay? They come in two heights, either of which will work. A quick check on eBay shows only the taller feet for under $20/set.

    I was thinking using 4 hockey pucks under my MC2300 ( the plastic feet are there but still..). Bad idea??

    I found an ebay seller w/ NOS feet, both the 5/8 and the 1"

    Should I get the 1"? My 2105 came with 2 5/8" feet.

    Sir, Not to panic.
    Even if you can't obtain original McIntosh feet for your wooden cabs, a trip to Home Depot, Lowes, or any number of hardware stores will make available any number of similar screw or glue on feet, suitable for your purpose.
    I think I would call McIntosh Labs and ask them for some feet first.
    Then you will be able to say "feets, don't fail me now!".

    I'm a little surprised in all the talk about feet that nobody has brought up the subject of vibration control feet--Stillpoints, Symposium, or some such. I recognize that many people may be more concerned about OEM parts for authenticity sake but vibration control is surely the way to go for overall system performance?

    Just curious.

    My C2300 pre uses HRS Nimbus feet on Symposium Svelte Shelves. The improvement is not subtle, just cannot figure out why companies do not use quality feet!

    Btw you can get the feet from Mcintosh for $1 each + shipping depending on where you are.

    What is it about the improvement? Can you describe the change?

    Plastic, rubber or wood. Pick one. They are only feet and it doesn't matter.

    That's a "matter" of opinion.

    Or you could mix them up and have at least one of each.
