The MC2120 sounds like "family" along with the other Macs I have (MC50, MC2300) and have had (MC2100). Still sounds uniquely like a Mac. I actually sold my MC2100 and kept the MC2120 (when those were the only 2 I had) because the 2120 sounded better.
The SMS settings were Volume - 1 o'clock, bright switch normal (middle), Treble - all the way up, Mid - straight up 12:00, Bass - off. Pad knob on back all the way up. Sensitivity setting on the 2120 on the "louder" setting (I forgot the number but the one which doesn't pad the input).
The tone wasn't as "heavy" as some examples (not quite like that 83 Althea) but it had slight "hair" throughout. It was loud though and reminded me of those early 80's JGB shows when Jerry was loud and in your face with that "attitude".
