McIntosh is commemorating its 60th anniversary with 120 sets of its legendary C22 stereo preamplifier and MC75 monoblock power amplifiers.
Produced from 1963 to 1972, the original McIntosh C22 preamplifier set the standard for features and flexibility for preamplifier designs. The 60th Anniversary Limited Edition C22 Tube Preamplifier has the look and feel of the original, but adds a number of circuit enhancements to bring the design up to modern specification. For example, the new C22's rear panel has two sets of XLR inputs and eight RCA inputs. RCA and XLR outputs are provided, along with trigger and data ports to communicate with other McIntosh components.
In 1961 McIntosh introduced two of its most famous amplifiers of all time: the MC275 stereo 75 watt per channel amplifier and its 75 watt monaural counterpart, the MC75. The new Limited Edition MC75 amplifier incorporates many circuit updates to improve reliability while retaining the original’s sonic allures.
The MC75's power supply is now identical to the one used in the stereo MC275, which effectively doubles the size of the power supply of the MC75. Balanced inputs and outputs have been added that weren’t on the original versions. The MC75 delivers 75 watts into 2-, 4- or 8-ohm rated speakers. Trigger switches allow the C22 to remotely turn the MC75 on and off. The original’s chrome-plated chassis has been replaced with a gold color, titanium-stainless steel chassis.
