McIntosh MR78 Solid State Tuner, One of the Best!
McIntosh is one of the most dependable brands when it comes to high-end audio systems. For years McIntosh has been recognized by audiophiles throughout the world as equipment that delivers clear and consistent quality in music. McIntosh is probably best known for its amplifiers and preamps, but the company produced many other components and parts for stereo and home theatre over the decades.
The Mclntosh MR78 solid state tuner is a precision-engineered, highly-sensitive FM Multiplex Tuner. Produced from 1978 to 1984, the MR78 is often referred to as the best FM tuner McIntosh made; listed on IEEE's technical journal as an inductee to the "Consumer Electronics Hall of Fame.”
The MR78 not only pulls in stations as clearly as possible, the accuracy of the signal from discovery and interpolation to final output has been nearly unmatched in 50 years. The MR78 does this with what's called an "Intermediate Frequency Filter" which sets the stage for all the components that follow it to perform to their utmost potential.
Our example here pulls in stations perfectly with little to no background "hiss." Our tech has gone through it from top to bottom and it's immaculate.
The whole package is in amazing condition, from the polished chrome chassis to the black glass and silver adorned faceplate to the gorgeous walnut casework. Once you have experienced this MR 78, you will understand why McIntosh products have earned their reputation among the finest components of their kind being produced anywhere in the world.
This example is nearly spotless and comes complete with the Owner's Manual and Service Manual.
