Dismantling my system for an upcoming move - offered here is my McIntosh MC162 Amplifier in perfect operating condition and very good cosmetic condition.

I purchased the amp about two months ago from a dealer and had the unit fully checked out and new bulbs installed - functionally, it's like a brand new amp with no issues whatsoever. Cosmetically, it was rated 9/10 when I bought it, and remains in the same condition. The only cosmetic blem I can find is a black line (looks like sharpie) that is about three quarters of an inch long on the top, which is only visible up close and under careful inspection. Glass is perfect, bulbs are bright and strong with less than 100 hours on them. The amp looks fantastic.

The amp has the wonderful McIntosh house sound - powerful, detailed, and so very musical. I replaced the stock fuse with an AMR Gold Fuse to wonderful effect - reduced some glare and further improved an already wonderful midrange. Two 160 watt high current output channels - staggering 500 watts bridged - will drive and speaker with authority. The MC162 reproduction is sonically transparent and absolutely accurate.

The amp will ship in the original McIntosh boxes for safe arrival.

Buyer to pick up shipping via FedEx or UPS (your preference); please add 3% for paypal.
