McIntosh have just announced a brand new reference pre-amplifier design: The C1100 two box vacuum tube pre-amplifier.
McIntosh has long been known for hand building exceptional quality amplifiers, pre-amplifiers and source components, and with the C1100 have advanced the state of the art one more notch.
The C1100 consists of two boxes: a controller and a vacuum tube output stage. Keeping these two sets of sensitive circuitry absolutely separate allows the very highest in performance.
As part of trying to produce the absolute highest quality possible, McIntosh have decided not to include any digital audio circuitry. This allows for the very highest quality components to be used throughout.
Key Design Highlights:
- 2 Box Pre-Amplifier
- Fully balanced and dual mono design
- Tube based output stage
- Exceptional quality MM and MC phono stages
- All analogue design - No digital inputs
- Extraordinarily low noise floor.
