Default Opinions on mcintosh ma6900

Hi.Have a chance of getting one so am interested in opinions on this amplifier.It costs around 4000 dollars.Am mostly gonna use it for cd and vinyl but has to be good at movies too (2 channels mind)

Thanks in advance.

It's a mighty fine 2-channel unit. Phono input is moving magnet only, no moving coil. And $4k seems a bit steep. I think it was $4500 when it debuted 12 or 13 years ago. I don't know what blue book is, but I guess $2800

I had looked and listened to the 6900 but it was slightly outside of my budget at the time. Definitely a great unit and would have satisfied me for years to come. Just a few years afterwards I ended up going the C220 preamp/MC252 amp combination but that integrated would have been just fine for me.
McIntosh C220 - McIntosh MC252 - EAD T1000 - EAD DSP7000 III - Castle Acoustics Howard S3 - Velodyne SPL 1500R - RGPC 1200C/400 Pro/400 MKII...and other stuff
