McIntosh Laboratory announced its 50th Anniversary Limited Edition McIntosh MC275 tube power amplifier. Featuring an elegant gold-toned chassis, the specially created amp is being offered in a very limited quantity, accompanied by a commemorative history book and deluxe packaging. It combines modern convenience and performance enhancements without altering the smooth, clean sound character that has made the MC275 famous for the past 50 years. With the new Limited Edition MC275, music enthusiasts and discerning consumers will be able to experience all the power, realism and emotional connection with their music made possible by an ultimate-quality McIntosh amp.

McIntosh President Charlie Randall noted: “When McIntosh debuted our original MC275 tube power amplifier in 1961, the world had never heard anything like it before. We have applied 50 years of technological advancements to this already legendary piece, which continues to maintain its leadership status for quality and reliability. People who know this amp won’t be surprised to learn that many of the 1961 era MC275 amps are still in use today. Our Limited Edition MC275 pays tribute to the original for everything it has meant to McIntosh customers over the years and for ‘bringing their music to life.’ This is truly a golden anniversary for the MC275 and we’re confident that years from now, music lovers who purchase a Limited Edition model will still be enjoying their ‘sound investment!'”

With its luxurious gold-toned chassis and rock-solid craftsmanship, the Limited Edition MC275 features the classic 1961 tube circuit design of the original, recognized worldwide as the hallmark of unmatched quality, performance and reliability. The new model incorporates several advanced features suited to today’s listening trends. Key enhancements include a multi-colored LED display to indicate different performance readiness, as well as a new High Speed Sentry Monitor circuit that automatically turns the amp off should any particular tube wear out. When the tube is replaced, normal operation is restored. Also, for the first time ever, the Limited Edition MC275 is equipped with Power Control input and output, so on-off operation can be controlled by a simple cable connection to any McIntosh preamp or processor.
