  1. Few days ago we listened the speakers Elac Vela 403 and 407 with Mcintosh 5300, Mastersound Box 2018 and Luxman 505 II. The cables were Vertere. Compared to the older 40X series, the new ones were softer and sweeter in the top registers and both had more bass. In total they sounded more relaxed with tons of details and nice space. We started with the Mc 5300 and Vela 403, but then we switched to the Mastersound. Oh, what a jump. The whole system became alive, with much better resolution, more 3d sounding, better controlled bass and cleaner voice. No question, it is a better amp. Continuing with the 407, we received a netter bass and soundstage. Then, we matched it with the Luxman 505. To my ears it sounded the best. One day I buy one. The soundstage became a bit narrower but more organized than with Mastersound, and still much better than 5300. The resolution was great, it sounded very lifelike, neutral, rounded. The piano and the voices were perfect, the sound was like in a flow. The Elacs were so transparent that we could immediately tell the differences between the amps. The systems sounded well with everything: Karen Souza, Jazz+Az, Rammstein, Nirvana, Vangelis. I wanted to see what could be my next speakers, but at the end the 505 impressed me the most. If you have a possibility, I would recommend to listen it and also the Mastersound (tube amp).
  2. My new amplifier will be with me shortly, so it's time to offer up my wonderful McIntosh MA252 tube hybrid integrated amplifier. It's just too tall for where it will go in my new home, plus I decided to upgrade my amplifier with the arrival of new 'speakers. This is a UK authorised dealer supplied amplifier, bought ex display by me. It hasn't had that much use; I've had it for around 6 weeks or so. It comes from a smoke and pet free home. It is in very good condition. It will come in its original very sturdy original box and packaging (the foam that protects the tube cages is missing [it arrived with me like this], but I'll use substitute packaging for that; it is not a critical part of the packaging.) Remote control and manual present. No mains lead. This really is a very accomplished hybrid amplifier. It's very easy to use, has some useful facilities (tone controls, balance, decent headphone amp, et al). The remote control reminds me of an Apple type device; very ergonomic and responsive. The MA252 uses a pair of 12AT7 and 12AX7A tubes in the preamplifier, combined with a solid state power amplifier section, offering a conservative 100W/channel in to 8 ohms. This amplifier has received many awards and has had some great reviews. This is an accomplished amplifier that is built to last, from a well established and respected audio manufacturer. Full spec and details from the McIntosh web site here: A review to get you going: These retail at £4,500. I'm asking for £2,525. Collection from me in Bexhill is fine, with a prior deposit to secure. Cash or prior bank transfer on collection. I'm willing to have this delivered by courier at the buyer's risk. Cost with UPS via Interparcel is £11.82 with £25 of insurance, or £106.62 with full cover. Buyer is welcome to arrange their own courier (collection date to suit me though!). Size is 43x39x55 cms and c 18Kgs. I could possibly arrange a meet up in Se England; again a deposit to secure with cash on collection.
  3. McIntosh MC452 Stereo Amplifier On Ebay
  4. A high class amplifier made by McIntosh. The amplifier is about 2 years old, in full working order and excellent condition. There is a small scratch to the side panel caused by a metal latch in my cabinet (see photo) and not visible from the front. I would prefer a pick up. It could be posted, but I would estimate the cost to be upwards of £100 due to its weight and value. Cash on collection please Specification: 2 x 200 watts (8/4/2 ohms) Exclusive McIntosh output autoformers Wide power bandwidth with ultra-low distortion Exclusive McIntosh Power Assurance System: Power Guard® clipping protection Sentry Monitor® current protection Thermal Cutout DC Failure protection Turn-On Delay Soft Start inrush protection Illuminated peak-responding wattmeters Exclusive McIntosh 5-band equalizer circuit Silent electromagnetic switching Precision-trimmed volume control Loudness Compensation 6 source selections (including phono); one balanced input Switching for 2 outputs Accommodates more sources with McIntosh MVS3 A/V Selector Control data output for source components Remote power control (1 main, 1 accessory, 2 switched) Remote operation of lights, screens, and drapes with McIntosh HC1 Home Controller Electronically regulated power supply with double-shielded transformer Gold-plated input and output jacks Fanless convection cooling Modular construction with polished stainless steel chassis Glass front panel with illuminated nomenclature Infrared remote control Connector for external IR sensor or keypad controller Headphone jack
  5. Hi, I have some vintage tubes on offer, type 6AU6 Pentode, EURO code EF94 3 pieces of Telefunken tubes, diamond mark in the bottom glass 3 pieces of McIntosh branded US tubes These were spare tubes, never used by me, I bought them as NOS, but off course I can't guarantee they are real NOS, probably they test like new, but that's not the same as NOS, as you wammers know. 20,- GBP/piece for the TFK 30,- GBP/piece for the Mc branded tubes, as those are quite rare to find Shipping at buyers cost, I pack VERY strong and postmen proof.
  6. I am selling my Mcintosh MXA 70 as a headphone amp of this caliber is no longer required for my needs. It is in spotless, like new condition and comes with all the included original accessories including speakers cables, remote and original packaging. The amp was purchased new and wants for nothing save to give you hours of listening pleasure. This is a system which needs no introduction and is doubtless one of the finest headphone amplifiers in the world. Any questions are more than welcome and more photos will follow shortly. Shipping is available to elsewhere in the world but this amp is eu/uk spec 230v so that is worth knowing before considering purchase. For full specification please visit
