  • A fabulos site for repairs of McIntosh and other ventige audio classics
  •  
  • After 52 years of reliable service, my C26 Preamp needed a new Mode Selector Switch as well as replacing still functioning but old capacitors and transistors.

    The MC 2505 needed replacing items also.. All work performed at AUDIO CLASSICS in Vestal, NY by Ryan Kilpatrick. All units now perform at factory spec with the 2505 rated at 50 wpc now again delivering 65 wpc.

    The C26 Mode Selector Switch, no longer available, had to be rebuilt from scratch by Ryan. I am extremely pleased with the system performance using my BOZAK 302A system with rebuilt crossovers.

    This was my original solid state system replacing Citation I and Citation II units which I built from kits in 1963 and 1964.

  • Sounded so good when I heard these at a NYC audio show, I had to have them. I'm the original owner. These have been babied and in my main system for their entire life. Never left the room. Once you hear these you will fall in love as I did, Hate to see these go but trying to downsize Very compelling realism.

    L'oiseau Lyre: Medieval and Renaissance - 50 CDS New and Sealed
    This set was very highly reviewed, released at a bargain price, and was quickly sold out. It is now almost impossible to find.
    The are none on offer from Discogs, and only one on eBay for $995.
    I was lucky enough to find TWO, but I paid a premium price.
    I have always liked "L'oiseau-Lyre" as a label, and have often searched them out when vinyl was being sold cheap.
    By the way, I tired to put together my own set from discogs and other sources, on vinyl when I could.
    I quickly found that my list was never going to be complete, and at over $500 was only a little over half-way there.
    The "Baroque" and "Classical and Romantic" sets are more readily available, and at more reasonable prices.

    This final L'Oiseau-Lyre set presents some of the most significant Medieval & Renaissance albums recorded by one of the most authoritative Early Music labels.
    Ranging from Anonymous 13th century hymns to Dowlands Lachrimae, the works explored in this 50CD collection effectively represent the dawn of Western Music Tradition.
    Included are 6 albums new to CD, plus a 200-page booklet featuring historical overviews of the recorded works and a history of the label.
    6 ALBUMS ON CD FOR THE FIRST TIME:
    CD12: PERUGIA: Secular Works
    CD16: DES PRES: Complete Three-Part secular music
    CD17: ISAAC: Chansons
    The Medieval Ensemble Of London

§ For Sale: (Russian) Valankon Tube Preamp    posted Apr 6, 2019, runs thru Oct 6, 2021 (show)

  • For Sale: (Russian) Valankon " УП 01 " Tubed Preamp

    An excellent sounding Russian hi-end tubed preamp unknown in the USA reworked to cure one design fault (some hum) and then extensively modified to take it up to an outstanding level.

    Since these are unknown, it's a bit hard to sell via the usual sites so I'd like to just recoup the $1,000 to 1,500 or so in just labor I put into it (I didn't really track that as it was for my own use, but it was a lot of work), never mind the parts cost added or whatever the unknown value of the stock unit may be. But if someone is interested in getting a terrific sounding pre at a sacrifice price, you can take it home for a listen. If you like it, and make a reasonable offer that doesn't insult the work that went into this, you may just become the owner of a bargain. This is the most practical way I can think of to put this up for sale since we all gather at meetings and no shipping makes this simpler and practical. This is not a small piece of gear. (Or even a conventional one anymore.) Just read what this has in it!

    Pictures of the internals are available, just ask. I even have the original spec list in Cyrillic (Russian).

    Contact me at gorkuz@yahoo.com or 845-267-8882.

    Description:

    It came with excellent Russian military parts, wires and film caps to which a lot of top-quality Polypropylene caps were added as bypasses and double-bypasses, plus some fittingly post-Soviet military Teflon/foil cap blockers in critical locations that I got from Neal Patrone. The critical solid state rectifiers in it have been replaced with HEXFREDs.

    The critical signal wires have been replaced with (mostly shielded) Cardas Litz OFC in Teflon and the critical paths have all been shortened to a minimum using super-grade relays installed right at the RCA inputs. The line level inputs now output directly into a single line pair that goes directly into the line level input circuitry by the shortest possible path that avoids areas this shouldn't go near. The phono relay outputs directly to the phono section. Originally, the more typical architecture ran all the inputs (including the tiny phono signal) separately (lots of wires) from the RCAs in the back to the selector switch in the front and then back almost to the back panel again where the circuit inputs are located, and past things they should not have been near (noise pickup, eliminated now). The selector switch now only controls the relays via regulated DC power to it and then using the original wires to the relay coil contacts only.

    A heavy copper shield has been added over the entire input / output section to shield them from the rest of the preamp including the nearby power transformer to reduce noise floor and there is ERS inside for RF.

    The phono input tubes, originally the Russian equivalent (read: copy) of 12AX7's but with a different pin-out, have been rewired to use 12AX7's which are somewhat better than the originals for this purpose. I vaguely recall I put in Telefunkens but the writing on them came off so I am not sure of that any more.

    All inputs have been equipped with continuously variable impedance controls, as detailed below in the Specifications.

    Extensive use of ERS RF absorbent throughout the unit in critically placed execution.

    All (high quality, gold plated) RCAs are clean, fresh and CAIG treated.

    The Specifications, translated from Russian with the improvements noted:

    Phono: Meant for MM but has >73dB S/N specified (now improved) and 5mV sensitivity and a huge amount of gain so it can really handle medium to high output MC in easily with the upgrade infinitely variable 0 to 48K input impedance circuit installed inside it now. The input impedance can now be set to taste by listening while setting.

    3 Line level inputs: labeled "CD", "1" and "2" of 150mV sensitivity and 98 dB S/N. Now equipped with variable input impedance 10K-90K with 55K detented at 12 o'clock.

    Tape Inputs & Outputs (line level).

    Balance control.

    Switch bypassable Tone controls (high & low) and /- 4dB Loudness control.

    Maximum signal output: 30V with an Output Impedance of less than 300 Ohms

    Tubes: Phono input tubes (2) modified to use 12AX7, the rest are Russian 6Н2ПЕВ, 6Н3ПЕ

    Size: 48cm-W х 11,2cm-H х 40cm Deep and Weight: 14 Kg / 31.8 Lbs.

    Point to point wiring, hand built, now hand rebuilt.
