    I'm not a fan of the brand, but it is impressive they can repair anything they've ever made.

    Yes. Audio Research and Wilson Audio can also repair anything they've made. These are all great iconic American brands!

    A visit to Audio Classics and then the McIntosh factory makes for a fantastic day!

    Finish it off with some Speidies and beverages at a local establishment and you are good to go.

    Oh my God.... spiedies are amazing... I definitely miss them. When I grew up there, years ago, every bar (and there are ALOT of them in Binghamton) grilled spiedies during the summer.

    I have to have at least one piece of Mc in my system. I have had more than a few over the years. Currently my only piece is a phono preamp. At some point might get another amp... but their higher models are far too heavy for me, but then again I am currently very happy with my MBL! So no hurry at this point.
