This is a vintage McIntosh MA-230 Preamp/Tube Amplifier with original Owners Manual included. It is in what I consider mint condition! I have provided plenty of images so you can judge for yourself. It was purchased from a McIntosh dealer several years ago, and at that time it was fully serviced. Tubes are 4 - 7591 (McIntosh branded by Sylvania), 2 - 12AU7 (Raytheon - England) and 1 - 12AX7A (unbranded). Shipping is free within 48 lower states with full price Buy It Now.
