The MC225 McIntoh amplifier is a very special piece. The amplifier of a life time. One that does not come often on the used market and it's easy to understand why when you get the chance to listen to it. If you are lucky enough to grab one, you'd better keep it. Just like I did." - Audio Aficionado
