McIntosh’s C2500 must be the most versatile high-end preamp we’ve ever tested...The preamp has a large scale, authoritative presentation that also demonstrates lovely delicacy when required.
The C2500 tube preamplifier combines the legendary McIntosh vacuum tube preamplifier circuitry with a full suite of contemporary features and technology. A total of fifteen inputs - including two dedicated phono (1 MM and 1 MC) and five digital - offer you ample connections to connect all your legacy and modern sources, while six dual triode tubes produce a warm, romantic sound. The digital inputs will decode digital music at up to 32 bits/192kHz for high resolution audio playback.
Tone controls may be assigned to individual sources as needed. Up to three stereo power amplifiers may be connected at one time; two of them can be switched on and off to simplify your whole house audio distribution. The Home Theater Pass Through feature allows for seamless integration into existing multi-channel theater systems.
Not only does the C2500’s polished stainless steel chassis look beautiful, but it shields the noise sensitive analog audio section from the power supply and control circuitry to provide the cleanest signal possible to your amplifier.About this unit
