Celebrating 70 Years of Industry Leading HiFi
McIntosh have been the worlds go to brand for the very best in audio gear for 70 years and now they celebrating with 2 special edition tube amplifiers.
McIntosh's MC2152 70th Anniversary Vacuum Tube Amplifier is a 150 Watt per channel stereo amplifier and features a striking new design to celebrate McIntosh's seven decades of handcrafting some of the best home audio equipment the world has ever heard. While its design is new, the MC2152 incorporates the lessons they've learned and the techniques they've invented in our 70 years of audio engineering.
Real, Consistent Power
Utilizing McIntosh's patented Unity Coupled Circuit output transformer technology, the same technology the company was founded on in 1949, the full 150 Watts can be delivered to almost any pair of speakers regardless if they have 2, 4 or 8 Ohm impedance.
Tubes, Tubes and more Tubes
The MC2152 uses eight KT88 output vacuum tubes AND eight small signal tubes comprised of four 12AX7A and four 12AT7 vacuum tubes; half of the tube complement is assigned to each audio channel. The 12AX7A vacuum tubes are for the Balanced and Input amps, while the 12AT7 tubes are for the Voltage and Driver amps.
The LEDs under the eight small signal tubes can be set to three illumination settings: Off (which allows the tubes natural amber glow to be visible), Green or Blue – a new color option unique to the MC2152. And of course, Sentry Monitor™ technology monitors the output current and shuts the amplifier off if it ever exceeds safe limits.
To the back are the two Unity Coupled Output Transformers with the power transformer centered between them. All three transformers are housed in glass topped extruded enclosures displaying the wiring diagram for each transformer. A 70th Anniversary badge is laser engraved into the top plate of the enclosures.
