My customer Pete received his cabinet a couple of days ago, he was kind enough to send pictures of the receiver installed in the cabinet. Since I already posted the cabinet by itself as a project previously, I didn’t want to post it as a project again.

Looks Great Jerry. I have an old stereo receiver I used as a kid, I might try this also if I thought It would turn out this nice. Nothing beats an old tube amp.

That’s awesome! I’ve got a love for old receivers…so great that you were able to contribute to one’s extended lifespan with such a beautiful cabinet. I know you posted before, but if you would…did you source a new ventilation screen or use one was part of the original receiver cabinet?
Nice to have such a happy client. Word might just get around and all those Uber rich folks with classic McIntosh equipment might start banging down your door! ; )

Beautiful work Jerry.

I know, back in the day, I wouldn’t have given this receiver a second glance, but they’re highly sought after now…

It brings back a lot of memories looking at that receiver and cabinet. I think we had ours for 30 plus years and then it was time to get something that matches the rest of the house. It still worked great.
