Default Thinking of a MC200?

Need Newbee advice- I have a pair of Classic audio T1.4 Horns(98DB)- running a pair of purity audio Ultra 300b(18 watts) amps- they sound great but are lacking the punch to handle the 2- 15 inch woofers- Never had Mac. gear but always loved the look- I found a MC2000 but it is from a dealer in England and it is 230 volt- Any thoughts if this would be a good match for my speakers or what other Mac tube amp would you rec.- Like a warm deep wide soundstage - Listen to mostly Jazz and female vocals- thanks so much for the advice-

I would spring for a pair of MC 75’s. Plenty of power and outstanding performance. Search this forum for a review by JDandy.

What's wrong with the MC2000? A Sidney Corderman masterpiece!
