McIntosh C500 Preamplifier with Outstanding Audio Performance

The McIntosh C500 Stereo Preamplifier is a no-holds-barred, fully-balanced, dual-mono design with separate power supplies. Available with solid-state or tube preamplifier modules, the C500 preamplifier marries outstanding audio performance with flexible user-programmability in a stunning two-chassis solution.

At its heart are dual R-Core transformers that anchor a massive power supply, providing the audio circuits with clean, rock-solid power enough to handle even the most demanding musical passages with ease. Three balanced inputs, four single-ended inputs and two processor loops guarantee the flexibility necessary for operation with the finest source components. Moving Coil and Moving Magnet phono preamplifiers are supported in both the solid-state and tube preamplifier modules.
