PRICE DROP! Beautiful looking and sounding McIntosh C22 Mark III preamp. Mint current model with remote, great MM/MC phono section with two upgraded Upscale Audio NOS Mullard 12ax7 tubes ($370) in the MC section. Very low hours on preamp and hardly any on the upgraded tubes due to home remodel. Purchased new in April 2017 from an authorized Mcintosh dealer. Regretfully selling as I am getting out of analog and will be going direct from my dac to my amp. With original box, packing, manual, remote, stock Mcintosh tubes and stock power cord. Sale to USA lower 48 Audiogon members with multiple positive feedback only. No trades. If you live overseas, Alaska, Hawaii or have negative feedback please move on. Plus shipping. Due to some bad actors on Audiogon, no returns, no warranty. No Audiogon express. PayPal or USPS Postal Money Order only. I will cover the PayPal fees if the asking price is paid, otherwise PayPal adds 3%. NO LOWBALL OFFERS! From the Mcintosh website........Featuring a cool, 1960s retro design, the C22 Vacuum Tube Preamplifier has been updated to modern standards to deliver a performance on par with any other McIntosh preamplifier. Electromagnetic input switching provides reliable, noiseless and distortion free operation. Low distortion levels of all types are less than 0.08%, allowing music to be presented with total transparency and accuracy.
