Thanks guys. Nearly 80lbs of iron. That's amazing considering there's no built in tuner or preamp. Has some nice and unusual features like output auto transformers and a switch that prevents it from going into clipping.

Don't know yet, I would like a c28. But for right now, I'm using the preamp on my stage dac until I can find something.

Everyone remember their first encounter with the Blue meters? Yeah? I went from looking>staring>tranced-out. And don't recall any :tongue_smile: of the music!

Yeah the meters are nice, but visually the 1280 left an impression on me. And although I sold it because I liked my other gear a little better, I do miss looking at it both at night and during the day. But it's funny size wise, the Mac is smaller than every monster receiver or integrated I've owned. But man is that thing heavy. My g901 feels lite in comparison.

I get it...............sometimes I watch my Spec 2 meters dance throughout an entire song.  Need to take up pot smoking again.....................then I can really enjoy them.

That's a beauty.  What year was this produced?

Thanks, I just ordered a new glass for it. Amazing mcintosh still support these amps. It just set me back 150.00, but given I only paid 399.00 at a pawnshop, I don't mind. They even gave me a free 6 mo return warranty. But they won't have to worry about it.

@ Oregonian, they were produced from 72-79. Mine is from 79.
