This listing is for a very clean McIntosh C-46 Audio Control Center, our floor demo unit and it will ship in it's orig box with all accessories. It must be listed as used per McIntosh policy, and all warranty needs would be handled through us, a McIntosh Premier dealer for decades.
McIntosh C-46 Audio Control Center
With eight source input selections, each one of them with a balanced input, all fully assignable and programmable, plus separate processor loops for both listen and record sections
and enough outputs, both balanced and unbalanced, to drive multiple amplifiers, the C46 Preamplifier is a control center that can easily coordinate even the most complex audio system.
Sonic integrity is enhanced through use of digital logic controlled electromagnetic switches which provide the most reliable, lowest distortion signal switching in existence.
Master volume control is accomplished through an ultra-precision digitally controlled attenuator, enhanced with Variable Rate Volume circuitry and adjusted through an optical rotary encoder that results in resolution and tracking accuracy within 0.5 dB.
The exclusive McIntosh equalization circuitry allows “tailoring” the sonic performance over 8 frequency
bands and a separate programmable bypass control totally eliminates the equalizer from the signal path when not in use.
Behind McIntosh’s signature black glass front panel, LED-driven Fiber Optic Light Diffuser Panels provide all the illumination – reducing heat and power consumption and increasing the lighting’s life span many times over that of ordinary light bulbs.
McIntosh Silent Electromagnetic Switches, located literally at the input panel, eliminate the need for audio signals to travel through any internal wiring where it would be subject to noise pickup.
The state-of-the-art switches consist of ruthenium contacts—the finest conducting material known— which are sealed within a glass tube containing an inert oxygen-free gas that eliminates all possibility of contamination and results in a distortion-free switch that never needs cleaning. The glass tube is enclosed within a multi-layer copper coil, which provides the means to actuate the switch and also provides additional shielding.
The entire assembly is finally encased in a shock-absorbent plastic housing for protection.
