Notes from our Technician: This piece came to us having underwent a light restoration at some point in the past. Several of the top mounted filter caps have been "restuffed" with modern electrolytics.We confirmed the quality of the work completed, then tested the remaining electrolytic capacitors. All four 7591 output tubes were replaced with current production Tung Sol reissue tubes. The driver tubes are vintage Daltron branded Japanese 12AX7 and 12AU7, all of which tested well on our modern and professional Amplitrex AT-1000 tester, and have plenty of life remaining. Output Bias was set to. 7V per tube as outlined in the official owners manual. The new Mclntosh MA230 presents two outstanding "FIRSTS" for your home stereo listening enjoyment.
