    sorry.......I just couldn't help myself. It will be the last time. I'm not allowed such purchasing pleasures. But I couldn't hold in the amazement.

    The only real thing in this amp's favor is the name on the side. A quick search showed that it is not among the most desired Mcintosh amps out there.

    If you've ever listened to an MC-2100, your drooling is likely to stop.
    I have one in my attic (no mean feat); the only reason I keep it is that they do have some "street value".

    The vaccum tube Mac power amps are worlds better sounding (just my hardly humble opinon)... unfortunately, I don't have one of those in the attic.
    all the best,

    Agreed, not one of their better sounding offerings. I've sold a couple of them, and there is NO way I would trust them to pack it properly, even if I wanted it. They aren't lightweights.

    I appreciate all your interest, or lack of in the 2100. It was just an example of some of the things that I have seen run through in the past few weeks.

    It was probably pulled from grandpa's estate after his passing, and they had no idea what it was another than a heavy peice of metal, thus thrown in the donation pile. McIntosh to most people is a type of apple.

    Fixed. ;)

    Their newer SS amps do sound pretty good.

    I just checked out the site--
    I find it odd to find a Nintendo DSi XL on there--I mean the thing was only just released about 2 weeks ago (Mar 28 2010 to be exact). It would have to still be under a 30 day return policy.

    I have a 2100 in my system and it works great as an amp for my sub. 200+ watts of Mac power (bridged to mono). It is very gutsy on the low end but it is not a great sounding amp for full range. These amps are still tanks-well built and sound pretty good especially if you have a set of speakers that tend to be a bit bright. They can also be modded with new caps etc and that improves them quite a bit. I had a pair of 250s that I ran as a pair of mono blocks (bridged to mono) and they also sounded pretty good after mods. Not the best amps but plenty of guts.

    I suspect that's a good application for an MC-2100 and have indeed considered using mine for such a purpose. On paper, though, the low damping factor wouldn't be ideal (still, ell worth a try). The subwoofer I am using now in the living room hifi is a powered one, so it's sort of a non-issue at the moment.

    One of the worst sounding things I've ever heard was a pair of Klipsch Cornwalls powered by this selfsame MC-2100. Talk about harsh and grating "solid state sound", whoo-boy.

    My system was built for music and the occasional movie-I think we watch 1 about every month or so. The sub gets the LFE information only. For that the 2100 works quite well. I guess I don't care if the bottom end of and explosion has an edge on it or not.

    Speaking of MC-2100s; if any of youse guys gets the urge to spiff one up, there was a pretty good article on refurbishing 'em in audioXpress a few years back (looks like it was Feb. 2004).

    see www.audioxpress.com or PM me for more information.
