    Default Musical Fidelity MC6 speakers

    Anyone know anything about Musical Fidelity MC6 loudspeakers...? I know of a pair for sale going for a decent price, worth a punt I wonder ?

    Any experience/thoughts/views appreciated.

    Thanks;
    Peter

    I heard a pair once many years ago. Looked interesting with drivers everywhere lol. quite big and efficient and sounded ok, without being great. Think they were fairly expencive in the day, but are probably worth 150 tops now.

    I had a pair of the earlier MC2 and MC4 speakers with the Elac metal dome tweeters the MC4s with the A100 amp was one of my favourite systems of all time and I sometimes feel the urge to try it again.

    The MC6 is contemporary with the 3 way mark 2 MC4s which I have heard were terrible but I read that the MC6 was not so bad and should be worth a go at the right price.

    I used to use several pairs of them when I worked for MF, for testing amps and as a background music system for the factory. I concur with Grant on them.... Nowt special.

    If it's the pair at Audio Emotion for 95 I would take a punt if I was local.

    Hi Jez, how tricky would it be to turn an early single posts pair into a bi-wirable pair for bi-amping ? The Highs went through and extra cap on the + (see pic) but I don't know what the - did as under the xover in this old pic I've managed to find. Hope you can shed some light !

    Oh really ? Thanks ! I knew he did some of the early offerings but never twigged the Prefix ! Not sure he had anything to do with the MC6s though

    I recall writing to MC asking questions about speaker design over thirty years ago in one of the monthly publications. About phase relationships between drivers I believe it was and I think it may have been in HFP. I got a published reply anyway.

    Had a few letters and articles published actually.
    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!
