Vintage 1950s Flagship McIntosh C20 Vacuum Tube Preamplifier.
The C20 was THE top of the line preamp in its day. It is easy now to see and hear why! It is visually stunning with obvious high standards of production quality. This, when mated its design elegance, makes this preamp a centerpiece for the vintage Audiophile collector.
In addition to its visual beauty, the audio performance is spectacular. This C20 has a champagne and black finish. It contains its original top of the line Telefunken 12AX7 & 12AU7 tube complement which all test strong and have complete original lettering. The original 6x4 rectifier was replaced with a new old stock GE tube so you are set to go for decades.
The preamp was just fully serviced and tested by a vacuum tube electronics professional. He went over every solder joint, resistor, capacitor and tube to be sure every part was well within specified tolerances. It was well worth it!
The preamp is in near mint condition and has all lettering intact, all original knobs, good light bulbs and almost no evidence of wear. I have conservatively rated it 8/10 because there are a few minor marks which is to be expected after over 60 years of use, but the pictures tell the story. It is in near mint condition. This were just purchased prior to servicing from the original owner.
It is now ready to please your eyes and ears for decades to come.
Thanks for looking!
