McIntosh MAC1700 Vintage Tube/Transistor Receiver - Survivor!


Simply the best looking 1700 to come into our shop.

This is a full featured receiver that's perfect for a starter McIntosh System or your office.

This is a hybrid model from McIntosh comprised of a solid state amplifier and tube tuner section. It was produced from 1967-1973 with a retail price at the time of $599.00. That's $4,600 in today's dollars when you factor inflation.

It's finished in a gorgeous champagne colored front panel with aluminum knobs and glass. 

The Faceplate is immaculate, and all of the knobs are shiny and pristine. There are no sigs of rust of corrosion anywhere. The glass is super clean too!

Functions include: dual phono inputs, individual left and right tone controls for bass and treble, and convenience outlets for powering other devices. 

Built like a tank and likely to outlive us all... Best of all it has the signature sweet McIntosh sound we've all come to love.
