Default Where can I get repair parts for Mcintosh amprefair?

Hello,
I want to replace some parts of my old Mcintosh Amplifier , but I don't know how to get those parts.
I want to get the same parts as McIntosh Laboratory has and use them for repair.

Where should I get them? Can I purchase them via the internet ?

Does Mcintosh lab also provide replacement parts ?
(Home Theater Systems | High End Audio | Home Theater Speakers | Amplifiers | Processors - McIntosh Labs)
If they do,what are the procedures to get the parts ?
I could refer the parts number here , is it better to tell them I want to get.

If you want to know if Mac sells parts, contact them directly and ASK them.


As to the parts, perhaps a list of what parts you are looking for,

Hello Enzo
Thank you for your reply.
I want to get capacitors ,transistors ,resister and some kinds of repair parts.
I am going to contact to Mcintosh lab.
But I am audio repair man out side of U.S.
So I suppose they don't support me.
I am glad if you let me know some idea.

If you are looking to find the EXACT parts, not all may be available. But if you don;t demand the same brands and models of various parts it will be easier. You can always find resistors and caps from any number of electronics component houses. If they used some RCA transistor, that will be harder to find, but other companies make the same types and they would work as well.

In the USA, we use companies like Mouser and Digikey for general parts. I don;t know where you are or what suppliers serve your area. US companies will often ship to the rest of the world, but that gets expensive.

Hello Enzo
Thank you for the information that you gave about the general parts shop.
I want to get the exact parts since the people who ask me to repair their Mcintosh amplifier want EXACT parts.
I want to get it directly from the Mcintosh laboratory.
Do you think it would be possible even if I am not American ?
Is it hard to get the exact parts from Mcintosh laboratory even if you are American ?

Best Regards,

Why don't you ask Mcintosh themselves. If they have a Korean distributor maybe they only sell parts to him so your out of luck.

Vintage, if you are looking for 40 year old resistors or transistors to replace old ones in a 40 year old amp, it will be difficult to find them. They don;t make them anymore. I sincerely doubt Mac has a supply of them either. If you buy parts from them, you will be getting modern parts they consider equivalent.

Hi everyone. McIntosh doesn't supply general parts, i.e. resistors, capacitors as well as any parts that can be found at the various distributors like Newark, Allied, Digi-Key or Mouser. Unique parts can be obtained from the Factory Parts department at (800) 538-6576. Ask for either Brian or Gail. In many cases they will require the McIntosh part number. The Factory and the 3 Restoration centers will not recommend or support any type of modifications, unless they are from the Factory.
