    McIntosh C2600 Tube Preamplifier


    Advanced Digital Audio with Upgraded Tube Circuitry

    The C2600 is a versatile preamplifier with an expansive set of 16 inputs to connect virtually all your analogue or digital music sources. For audio purity, the analogue and digital sections are housed separately in our dual chassis design to prevent signal corruption.



    • New advanced digital audio section for DSD & DXD support
    • Upgraded tube circuitry design
    • Separated analogue and digital circuitry in dual chassis design
    • Bass and treble tone controls
    • Analogue inputs: 3 x balanced, 4 x line level RCA, 1 x MM phono, 1 x MC phono
    • Digital inputs: 3 x optical, 2 x coaxial, 1 x USB, 1 x McIntosh exclusive MCT connection
    • Connect up to three stereo amplifiers

    Hi-Res Audio Playback

    The C2600 features a 32-bit/384kHz, DSD digital-to-analogue converter (DAC). The optical and coax inputs will decode digital music at up to 24-bit/192kHz for high resolution audio playback. The C2600 is also capable of decoding and playing DSD files; the USB input accepts PCM signals up to 32-bit/384kHz and supports DSD64, DSD128 and DSD256 plus DXD 352.8kHz and DXD 384kHz.


    Improved Connectivity

    With the C2600, all inputs can be renamed to your preference and are available all of the time, giving you more freedom to configure your system. The outputs have also been updated to be easier to operate when bi-amping or tri-amping so that your highs and/or lows are not accidentally turned off.


    Bass and treble tone controls can adjust individual sources as needed. For headphone listening, the addition of Headphone Crossfeed Director (HXD) brings an added dimension to your music. The H‚Äčome Theater Pass Through feature allows for seamless integration into your multi-channel home theatre system.
