The MC462 is the company's most powerful stereo amplifier with a dedicated McIntosh Autoformer that provides 450 watts to each speaker regardless of impedance. How does the new model stack up to the original? It has additional filter capacity for 66 percent more dynamic headroom for significant music variations without any distortion. The amplifier has new power management features that automatically turn it off when there is no input signal. The power control also connects directly to other McIntosh components for easy power up and shut down. Finally, the company’s trademark Quad Balanced design cancels out noise and distortion that may make its way into the audio signal.
If you prefer going with separate mono amplifiers, we recommend this model which produces 600 watts of power for any loudspeaker regardless of impedance. As with the MC462, its improved filter capacity enhances headroom from 1.8db to 2.8db for genuinely realistic sound. The added filter capacity also means better low-frequency response. It offers better accuracy with transistors designed to lower thermal equilibrium lag time, a brand new direct LED backlit display, and monogrammed heatsinks that are cool in more ways than one. The result is excellent frequency response, imaging and ultimately—beautiful sound.
Building on its predecessors, the C2300 and the C2500, the C2600 is the latest version in McIntosh’s leading line of 2-channel vacuum tube preamplifiers. While incorporating the best of the previous two models, the C2600 adds McIntosh’s advanced digital audio section and boasts an upgraded tube circuitry design. Among the expansive set of 16 analog and digital inputs include ones for optical, coax, USB and the McIntosh audio-exclusive MCT, while three sets of balanced and unbalanced analog outputs can connect the C2600 to your amplifier of choice. As a high-performance preamplifier, the C2600 is one of McIntosh’s leading products for high-resolution audio decoding and can be easily used with a bi-amp and tri-amp setup. We believe the C2600 is the perfect addition to any home theater or home audio system
, with a built-in home theater pass through feature and the ability to be paired with amplifiers, speakers, CD players, turntables, tuners, room correction devices.
