The C38, Remote Controlled, System Control Center is a perfect example of a simple, yet elegant instrument which will allow you to enjoy outstanding music reproduction together with a wide range of convenient operating functions. The C38 has a built-in capability of controlling two separate listening areas. The LISTEN signals are defined as Area A which is usually the main area where all the sound equipment is located. The RECORD signals are available at a pair of outputs marked B, and can be used for a remote area with its own dedicated power amplifier and pair of speakers.

Data ports are provided for seven audio remote controlled accessories. This feature allows you to control a compatible unit by transmitting with its hand held remote controller direct to a C38 sensor. A data port is also provided to control the optional Mcintosh MVS-3 Video Selector for switching video signals in addition to audio signals. Another data port connects to the optional Mcintosh HC-1 Home Controller to allow control of accessories or appliances.

The convenience of C38 remote control operation is enhanced by its capability of directly interfacing with the Mcintosh CR10 Remote Control System. The CR10 can add an additional four remote areas of control.

There are eight pairs of high level inputs to accommodate all the traditional program sources as well as the most recent new sources. A pair of low level inputs is also provided that will accept signals from a moving magnet phono cartridge in a record player. Digital Logic integrated circuits drive Electromagnetic Switches on all inputs and operating functions for the most reliable and distortion free switching available.

Separate RECORD and LISTEN circuits allow recording from one source while listening to another. A continuously variable Active Loudness Control allows loudness compensation to be selected for any setting of the volume control. The Loudness Control circuit elements are removed from the circuit path when the control is in the flat or fully counterclockwise position.

Bass and Treble tone controls provide 12dB of boost or cut. At the center "Flat Response" or detent position of the tone controls, all tone control circuit elements are removed from the signal path.

Two Signal Processor loops are provided. One is for Listen signals and one is for Record signals. Power supply voltage regulator circuits maintain stable operation even though the AC power line may vary. Double shielding of the power transformer completely isolates it from the audio circuits. This eliminates the need for a clumsy outboard power transformer used by some less sophisticated designs.

Front panel pushbuttons control two switched outputs as well as two pairs of speakers when an optional SCR3 switching relay is added.

The Mcintosh C38 "Classic Glass" front panel has all control, switch and pushbutton nomenclature illuminated.
