I currently own an original MC240 & C-22 I have the Dahlquist DQ10's - they are not real efficient(86db@1watt@1meter) but the combo is really good, could use a sub though

I used to own a 240 and it was heavenly with the big Klipsch Cornwalls.

I think that you will be very happy.
Hi Stephen,

Jerome, I've owned a MC- 240 and the MC-225 for many years. I run my 240 into a set of JBL C-51 Apollo's. They are loaded with LE-15's, LE-85's into an HL-91 horn, and the 075 ring radiator. The crossovers are the LX-5 and the N-7000. This is the sound I grew up with and it still sounds great! My MC-225 is run into a set of McIntosh ML1C's or sometimes into the JBL Lancer 99's. I think vintage should play with vintage.

my local newspaper recently ran a story on me and my DIY turntable. I made sure to have some McIntosh eyecandy in the background, unfortunately both mc240's were borrowed for the shoot, but I at least got to play with them for a couple of days!

Oh yeah! I had an early version of the 240 that paired quite well with Heresy II but had to had to sell it because the now ex kept turning it on with no load! Thank god she didn't kill it.
