Best place to buy Mcintosh Integrated Amp

I´m planning to buy an Mcintosh Integrated (MA 9500 or MA 12000).

Recommend any store/website for new equipment?



HiFi Haven Whittier CA

If you are near Southern California; these guys are great and a throw back to another time.  They have been selling McIntosh exclusively since 1957 in the same location. Its not a fancy place; just an old small shop and they repair anything McIntosh.  They are older guys who know everything about any legacy or new McIntosh product. 

I purchased my MA352 from them and they had MA352 and MA252 demos in stock last I checked.  In fact they usually get most anything McIntosh quicker than big chains. The owner told me their relationship with NY goes back generations and they have a direct line to key people.  So if you want it, they can somehow just get it.

They are not online and only open Saturday afternoons unless you call (really just Saturdays at the shop). Like I said a throw back to another age.

Dan has as extensive collection of used McIntosh equipment mostly from retiring dealers.  He is an authorized McIntosh dealer for new equipment also.  All  my dealings with him were excellent.  He went so far as to delivery demo equipment to my house, set it up, and allow us to use it for several days.  Definitely deals in the high end market.  While located in South San Francisco, he has an extensive customer base developed and expanded by word of mouth.

Audio Classics is the best place for new and used McIntosh equipment.  I personally have purchased 7 pieces of used McIntosh equipment from them.   Their used equipment looks as good as new equipment and comes with all the boxes and packing(important for resale or repairs).  I honestly would not buy from anywhere else. 

Agreed w/ Dill...any dealer.

I've been to Audio Advice retail store, and to a weekend audio show they promoted. Nice people.
