What else to know about the McIntosh MD 7005?

"I had my MCD 7005 just over 30 years. At 1 year old under warranty there was a mod for the tray. I never had feed back issues or noise issues with my 7005. I had to replace the tray belt after 25 years but that was the only issue. I will say imagining and staging of an 861 is much better than any of the 7000 series players. Instead of being Left center right the 861 and 891 are smooth all the way from extreme left to extreme right. Front to back is much better, too. Signal to noise is better also. High end is smoother above 7.0 KHZ. I preferred the front panel controls on the 7000 series players how ever. I much preferred the sound of my Revox 225 player over the Mac 7000. The controls, too. If I had waited a few more months I probably would have had a more advanced Revox player than the 7005. But the 7005 performed well for a very long time. Mine was from the first group built. I'm to lazy to look up the serial number right now. A close friend still has his, ours had consecutive numbers, and I think he had the lowest number of the two." -

In 1956, the brand built their original facility in New York, according to the official brand website.
