Super clean and very reliable MX119 from McIntosh.

Excellent for a home theater or stereo system focused on audio quality rather than having the latest in video switching.

Tested and working as it should all around. The display is big and bright and can easily be read across the room.

Includes a power cable and link to the owner's manual.

The original remote is not included - however McIntosh now offers a branded modern compatible remote that we can order for an additional $80 if you desire.

Performance Features Include:
• Balanced Inputs and Outputs
A pair of Balanced high level Inputs (assignable) and Front
Left, Center and Right Channel Balanced Outputs are provided.

• Moving Magnet Phono Input
There is a Precision Phono Preamplifier for Moving Mag- net Cartridges.

• Pure Stereo Mode
When the Stereo Mode of Operation is selected for an ana-
log source the signal is amplified with no digital processing placed in the signal path.

McIntosh MX119 Manual

The SkyFi Testing Process for Preamplifiers:

We start with a visual inspection of all internal components to make sure there are no signs of stress or aging. Capacitors are checked for telltale sings of bulging or leaking, resistors are checked for signs of overheating or cracking, and transistors are checked for signs of stress or damage. Special attention is paid to the power supply which is the most common source of failure for preamps. We then power up the unit and run a simple 1k sine wave while monitoring the low voltage output on an oscilloscope for signs of distortion or noise to get a baseline.

At this point we will lubricate and clean all switches and potentiometers (that are not sealed) with a high quality contact cleaner, and then re-test all functions for any signs of noise or scratching.

Final testing involves putting actual music through the preamplifier We have learned over time that some issues are only noticeable to a trained ear while listening to a familiar source material. Our test bench has reference vintage KEF speakers that we are super familiar with which will quickly reveal any discrepancies. Some preamps will then move into the listening room where they will be tested with our in-house reference system.
