Power Guard, a McIntosh circuit innovation, maximizes sound quality at high power levels while our Sentry Monitor feature provides continuous short circuit protection of the amplifier and connected loudspeakers.

actually this is all wrong, it was the MC3500 tube amps the navy tried to get from the GD. later as healy stated, it was the gd that had to wait for the military to get there production runs over for the mc2300 as well as spare parts. i guess a lessoned learned by not letting them get a couple of the mc3500's when they asked.
