I've just acquired a '65 vintage MC240 amp. As I understand, this is really a consumer piece, but I'm considering pressing it into service in the studio. I don't know enough about this type of amp to know whether I should expect to use it for mixing/critical monitoring of just listening/enjoying. I'm aware of the color that the amp may impart to mixes and fear mixing through the amp may result in cold (opposite of the warmth the amp will impart) mixes. What is your take on using these old tube behemoths in a critical mixing path? Also, I am planning on another set of monitors for use with the McIntosh. Any recommendations on full range monitors in the 12" woofer range. If I were going purely listening with no hopes of mixing on this chain, I might consider old JBL 4311 or the like. That's the approximate size I require for this room. I'm certainly intrigued with the KRK line. But if I had them, I'd sure want to trust that I could mix on the mac/krk combo confidently. Bottem line, does this McIntosh amp belong in the studio? Thanks Bill Watson GigaBoy A/V Check out my new site at: http://www.gigaboyav.com Moderator, please remove my site plug if inappropriate.
