What else to know about the McIntosh MC 60?

"I would rather trash this amplifier in this review to keep the prices down, but I've already got a pair and I guess what everyone else pays for them is none of my business. To me, they are priceless. They convey much rich detail in such a lifelike, effortless manner. There is no description that can ever define the experience completely. One must listen to these amps themselves to even have a clue. A way to think about it is to imagine that the actual performers are performing in front of you and are nearly visible. It is pure magic. The dimension created in the room is purely holographic. If you've ever wanted to know what it's like to have your auditory nerve sexually aroused, well here you go. The MC275 has a solid state rectifier and just doesn't pass the transients through like this amp. No one should be converting the rectifiers on this amp to solid state. On mine, we replaced the electrolytic caps and some of the tubes that tested weak. We had to do what was necessary to keep the unit functioning well into the future. I may wish to be buried with these amps. I know that sounds silly, but you have no idea what I've heard." -

Brief History of McIntosh

Long mapped-to Binghamton New York – the current headquarters and manufacturing center for McIntosh Labs – not many people know the brand was originally launched outside of the Nation’s Capital in Silver Spring Maryland, in 1949. In 1956, the brand built their original facility in New York, according to the official brand website.
