In addition to use as a stereo amplifier, the flexibility of the MC240 permits it to be used as a monophonic amplifier that delivers 80 watts, or as two separate 40 watt amplifiers with each channel amplifying completely separate programs, or as two amplifiers for use with an electronic crossover network.

Total harmonic distortion: 0.5%

Input sensitivity: 0.5V

Signal to noise ratio: 90dB

Speaker load impedance: 4Ω to 16Ω

Valve complement: 1 x 12AX7, 2 x 12AU7, 2 x 12BH7, 2 x 12AX7, 4 x 6L6GC

re: MC240

I have a later schematic (marked 154-319 at bottom right) which shows some differences from this schematic, and refers to Notes 1, 2, 3, and 4, regarding the changes to the circuitry.

Unfortunately, Notes 1 - 4 are not on the schematic.

Can anyone supply Notes 1 - 4 ?

Many thanks !

re: MC240


I am sorry to bother you, but can you please tell me where you found the late MC240 schematic (or email me a copy)?

I have been looking all over and the only drawings I can find have the octal preamp output on them.

I would really appreciate it!
