Pre-owned and in great condition.

The 50th Anniversary MC2000 is one of the rarest and most collectible amplifiers from McIntosh.

Besides collectibility there are many reasons the MC2000 is wonderful:

1) Like many Anniversary models it's gold plated, which makes it unique and gorgeous.
2) It features a traditional McIntosh amplifier layout with large blue meters, not a boring sled design like most tube amps.
3) The glass window in the front allows for a full view of the warm glow of the power tubes.
4) It has more power than the MC275 giving it enough horsepower to drive a more complex and demanding speaker load - 130W per side.
5) It's a dual mono design, featuring two amplifiers in a single chassis.

It has very low use and there are no notable signs of use. The metalwork is clean and shiny, the meters are bright, clear, and responsive.

McIntosh Performance Features Include:

Power Output

The MC2000 is a Dual Mono design which consists of two entirely separate Mono, 130 watt vacuum tube power amplifiers, each with its own power supply. Output impedance connections are provided for 2, 4 and 8 ohm loudspeaker loads.

Patented Bifilar Wound Transformers and Output Circuit
The power output sections utilize the famous McIntosh patented Unity Coupled Circuit with a Bifilar Wound Output Transformer for low distortion, extended frequency response and cool operating output tubes.

Balanced & Unbalanced Inputs
Both Balanced and Unbalanced Inputs are included. Balanced connections guard against induced noise and allow long cable runs without compromising sound quality.

Illuminated Power Meters
Two accurate, peak responding output meters continuously indicate the power delivered by each channel. A Peak Hold Meter Mode indicates the maximum power reached over a given time span. The meter illumination can be turned off so as to not detract from the listening environment, if desired.

Ceramic Tube Sockets with Gold Contacts
Ceramic tube sockets with gold plated contacts provide firm, reliable connections that are not affected by atmospheric contamination. Output tube sockets include Air-Pipe cooling at their bases.
