Re: McIntosh value?
Thanks Jim  
It is an MC30 and works ok. The cosmetics leave something to be desired. The chrome has gathered dust and is rusty beyond polishing. The transformers are perfect however.  
I'm not sure that there's much I can do with the chrome. I've thought of using chemical rust remover and just living with the pitting.  
Another problem is the filter cap, origainal, which is broken.  
The cap is 35/80/15 at 500v.  
The best solution I can think of is to go with a 40/20/20/20 @ 500 to replace the 80 and 15 sections, then use a pair of 70@350's back to back to replace the 35 section.  
But, to do that, I'd have to mount a small terminal strip which means drilling two holes.
