McIntosh MC275: A Timeless Audiophile Classic

Discover the McIntosh MC275 Vacuum Tube Amplifier, a revered icon in the audiophile world. Initially launched in 1961, the MC275 quickly became a preferred choice for its robust power and low distortion capabilities. After a hiatus post-1971, it re-emerged in 1993 as a special edition commemorating co-founder Gordon Gow. Now in its sixth generation, the MC275 continues to impress with enhanced performance and a legacy of excellence.

Performance and Versatility

The MC275 is known for its dual-mode functionality, offering 75 watts per channel in stereo and 150 watts in mono. Suitable for speakers with 4, 8, or 16 ohms impedance, its Unity Coupling Circuit output transformer technology ensures full power delivery irrespective of speaker impedance. The amplifier's fuse-less Sentry Monitor™ offers reliable short-circuit protection, ensuring longevity and performance stability. Additionally, the MC275 features both balanced and unbalanced inputs, LED-illuminated tubes for operational status, and Power Control technology for seamless integration with other McIntosh components.
