This guy has always bashed mcintosh. Wonder what changed.  
Need a big favor picking a preamp
I find that the Macintosh C-12000 a great sounding pre-amp with tons of features that compete with with Dan D' Agostino  a great phono stage tube or solid state. A  great value at $16,000.

On the C-12000 remote the input on the left side of the remote.  On the read out on the control unit, depress until you get to the desired input be it tube in input 2 or solid state input 4. You can label inputs as well  
McIntosh reference preamp C12000
farne230 On the C-12000 the bottom row of inputs are tubes the top row solid state. I am not sure for the MEN-220 you can only use the fixed rca out. Ask for Chuck in service at the 1-800 number at mcintosh he can help with any question.

Upgrade to McIntosh
The C-8 is a great value in the mcintosh line. You can also add the dac 2 which will give you arc and digital inputs. Last it sounds fantastic.

mcintosh C-53
I have a Krell KSA 200S would this amp be a good match with a mcintosh C-53 with transparent ultra speaker cables and tekton moabs.  
McIntosh MT-2 turntable
Thank you guys for the info. The mt-2 sells for five thousand is there a clear audio choice in that range that I should look into.  
Mcintosh 2105
I do own one and I sent it to the factory in New York and do to covid they have had my 2105 for over a year. Mcintosh tells me they they might be able to get to it in about ten days  . So sad, but you cheer me up when you say it is a good amp.
