    I just picked up an MX112 and an MC2505. I am loving this gear. Picked up from daughter of original owner that purchased it new in 1969. Original manuals and receipt! She has a set of Altec Magnificents that she is also throwing in. I haven't picked them up yet. They are going up for sale. I have no room for them. Pics coming!

    Look away I'm Hideous!
    Just getting a system up again after a serious financial crash a few years back.
    All that remains are the Old CV speakers and a Phase linear 400 Power amp now in storage.

    Starting to start over again with:

    McIntosh C-26 Pre-amp
    McIntosh MC-2100 amp
    Pair of Cerwin Vega VS-15
    2nd Pair of Cerwin Vega M-40
    Just a beginning but a place to start again...

    Just a shot of everything in the current inventory, though not all in use in the same system, all restored and usable!

    That's a lot of Mc tube goodness! And those Belles are gorgeous.

    Mcintosh MR-78 Tuner
    Mcintosh MAC 4280 Receiver
    Marantz CD-74
    Technics SL-1210 M5G
    Cerwin Vega 15T Speakers

    Even though the 4280 has a Tuner nothing compares to the MR-78.. The 4280 may not have the best reputation but with the right speakers in my opinion it sounds great!

    Do you experience any heat buildup with the components stacked?

    Hi @Duane

    I was a bit concerned at first putting the power amp beneath the pre but there's a lot of room/air around them.

    And when I put my hand on the heat sink of the power amp its only luke warm at best, when usually run at between 60 and 75%

    Yesterday, I picked up my freshly restored MX112 from Absolute Sound Labs in Savage MN. Wow! Mark and Evan also did the full restore on an MC2100 a few months ago. Sweet music!
