It will be hard to find another one as nice. Come with the matching L52/L12 slant leg walnut cabinet that is also in good condition. Include is the panloc that are in good condition as well.
The preamp has been test with the Aux/Tuner input only, with all the front functions tested and all in good working condition. Some of the switches/knobs produces a static when turns, so may need additional cleaning with Deoxit. No hum or static when the music is playing.

Finish: anodized gold and black. This is a used Mcintosh C26 in as-described condition. However due to the nature of vintage electronic, and the few fraudulent buyers out there. With no guarantee of its full function when it arrives to you. Vintage electronics contain 20-50 years old parts (belts, rubber parts, caps, etc) that while still work at the time I tested the unit, can fail at any given time.
It can be a few weeks, few months, or I have units in my collection that still going strong after 5 years since I acquired them. Service is recommend before long term use for longevity, especially with tube equipment. Due to recent issue with a few buyers abuse the return system.I will no longer accept any return for any reason. I hate to do this but I have to protect myself. I will send you the unit exactly as it appears on the picture here. It will be very well packed (double box is available upon requested) and fully insured. Please check my 100% feedback on safe packing.
In small chance it get damaged during transit, please take plenty of pictures and contact me before opening up the package.
