Default Mcintosh MA 6100 not working. Help please

Hi experts there,

I accidentally pluged my Mcintosh MA 6100 Amp into a 220V AC. After 10m it emitted smokes and now it's not working.

Can anyone tell me: how could I repair the Mc? should I bring it to shop?

Your help is very much appreciated.

Kerry.

Your mains transformer (along with other parts) will probably be fried.
If you have no or little experience, best to return it to the shop. You'll most likely not be able to acquire replacements for the broken parts.

could you tell how serious could the problem be? if there's no spare parts, could it still be fixed and possible cost?
thx you.

Impossible to tell without actually having the amp on the bench.
The shop you bought it from should be able to give you an estimate.
I'm quite confident that McIntosh has the spare parts. I'm just not sure they will want to sell them to end-users.

The transformer has secondaries of:

30-0-30V, probably 5A

6.3V, probably 2A

108-0-108V, probably 100mA

with a 120V/240V primary.
