The Mcintosh C220 is an amalgamation of Mcintosh's many years expertise in tube design and newly developed control circuits. It has all the flexibility modern systems require while maintaining the highest quality 2-channel performance. Is an example, all signal switching is done inside glass cylinders filled with inert gas. These switches are located adjacent to the input output jacks, virtually eliminating crosstalk. Switch cleaning is a thing of the past. The C220 allows for electronic , independent adjustment level settings for each of the eight Source inputs from either the front panel or remote control.
