Yes, the ultra ss are installed on c22, mr88, mc275vi, and f110s. I am also using the ultra-mini on the Dac and Innous.

They made such a positive impact on the sound. I'll add them to my S.F speakers at some point.

I just added Stillpints to my amps with no expectations, I was just looking to reduce any negative effects that vibrations could be having on my amps.

Yes there was noticeable improvement. The music has more detail and the highs are pleasantly rolled off very slightly, a much welcomed change since I felt it was a little “edgy” at times.

I went with Ivan’s recommendation of Ultra SS, pricy and will elevate your amp about an inch or more, some members have had good results with the mini’s also.

Suppose you are looking to improve the soundstage; try adding Stillpoints to the MC275vi. It made a significant difference to my system. Then I added them to the rest of the system and noticed another leap in performance.
I, too, like McMan, made the switch and will stay with my MC275 until it can be passed down to my son or grandson.

You want the B759 version. It's the premium gold pin one.
How do I know if I have the B759 version? Is it on the tube or box?

It’s definitely marked on the box. Not sure on the tube itself.

Default MC275 club

I’m still waiting for my replacement MC275VI that I purchased just before New Years. I think they’re holding it back to try to get me to purchase the MC462!

Sorry fellow MC275 club members but I’m trading in my MC275 membership for an MC462 club membership. My dealer has an MC462 that will be here next week and at this time there is still no anticipated production date at McIntosh for the MC275VI that I ordered to replace the one I had that failed. Basically I’m tired of waiting and I’ve already had an MC275VI but never an MC462 so I thought I would give one a try. If I don’t like it, I can always go back to an MC275VI at a later date.

You’ll have to turn in your membership card and a blown KT-88.
