It’s hard to believe that the McIntosh MC275 was introduced 50 years ago this year!
To commemorate this event McIntosh is releasing a limited edition 50th Anniversary Edition McIntosh MC275 Tube amplifier. Anniversary Edition features gold plating, special led lighting and a special edition box with commemorative book.
Featuring an elegant gold-toned chassis, the specially created amp is being offered in a very limited quantity, accompanied by a commemorative book and deluxe packaging. It combines modern convenience and performance enhancements without altering the smooth, clean sound character that has made the MC275 famous for the past 50 years. With the new Limited Edition MC275, music enthusiasts and discerning consumers will be able to experience all the power, realism and emotional connection with their music made possible by an ultimate-quality McIntosh amp.
McIntosh Global Vice President for Sales & Marketing Linda Passaro noted: “In 1961, McIntosh reinvented the art and science of quality music reproduction with the debut of its original MC275 tube power amplifier. Since then, this legendary amp has continued to evolve, and set new standards for quality, musicality and reliability. Amazingly, even after 50 years, many of the very first MC275 amps are still in use and prized by their owners today. Our new Limited Edition amp celebrates the original for everything it is – and everything it has meant to generations of McIntosh customers for ‘bringing their music to life.’ This is truly a golden anniversary for the MC275, and years from now, music lovers who purchase a Limited Edition model will still be enjoying their investment in great sound!”
With its luxurious gold-toned chassis and rock-solid craftsmanship, the Limited Edition MC275 features the classic 1961 tube circuit design of the original, recognized worldwide as the hallmark of unmatched quality, performance and reliability. The new model incorporates several advanced features suited to today’s listening trends. Key enhancements include a multi-colored LED display to indicate different levels of activity, as well as a new High Speed Sentry Monitor circuit that automatically turns the amp off should any particular tube wear out. When the tube is replaced, normal operation is restored. Also, for the first time ever, the Limited Edition MC275 is equipped with Power Control input and output, so on-off operation can be controlled by a simple cable connection to any McIntosh preamp or processor.
