SERIES: C2600 Tube Preamplifier
- The C2600 builds upon the C2300 and C2500 – two of the most successful McIntosh vacuum tube preamplifiers – while adding our advanced digital audio section for DSD and DXD support and an upgraded tube circuitry design.
- A versatile preamplifier with an expansive set of 16 inputs to connect virtually all analog or digital music sources.
- The analog and digital sections are housed separately in our dual chassis design to prevent signal corruption.
- Bass and Treble tone controls can adjust individual sources as needed.
- Up to three stereo amplifiers may be connected at one time; two of them can be switched on and off to simplify your whole house audio distribution.
