SOLD: FS: McIntosh MA252 Hybrid integrated amplifier 100wpc

Recommended Posts

Item: FS: McIntosh MA252 Hybrid integrated amplifier 100wpc
Location: Sydney/Telopea 2117
Price: 5000 
Item Condition: magnificent 
Reason for selling:Upgrade
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
Extra Info:
I am the first and only owner since bought new from https://www.lifestylestore.com.au since 7/2018. 

The amplifier is still under two years Australia Consumer warranty (7/2020) and three-year global warranty from McIntosh(Synergy Audio is distributor and service maintenance in Australia).

 

It has driven my PMC Twenty 24 beautifully with pleasure bass, warm to neutral tones thanks to tube in its Preamp stage.

This has also a great Phono input which will pump your Turntable and decent  built-in headphone amplifier. I have compared headphone amplifier of MA252 with Chord Hugo TT2, it is on a same bar, more musical vs analytical from TT2.

 

I have updated to PMC Twenty5.26 recently, its sensitivity is 86dB vs 90dBs from 24 hence I am going to a juicier amp, maybe MA352.

With 100wpc, MA252 can drive most of speakers.

 

Preferred local pickup and cash, interstate shipping is quite bad experience from me, hence it is doable but at buyer's own shipment organising and insurance

Also got this amazing amp.

I can vouch that this matches beautifully with the PMC Twenty 23, PMC Twenty5 24, Wharfedale Linton,  and Harbeth 30.

Huge soundstage, warm tube sound, non-fatiguing sound and it makes the vocals sounds more forward. 

Phono stage is excellent as well. 

Excellent amp value for the money. 

Sold previously my Audio Research LS7 tube pre and D240 power amp for this beautiful looking amp that even my wife is in love with this amp. :-)

I can only dream one day of getting the PMC Twenty5 26 and MC 352 combination but need a bigger room.  Im jealous. haha

GLWTS.
