The wait is over and McIntosh has released the new C2700 Vacuum Tube Preamplifier with their cutting-edge DA2 digital audio module which supports up to DSD512. Further enhancing the future-proofness of the C2700 and true to McIntosh's heritage of making products to last a lifetime, the DA2 is replaceable with newer digital audio modules as they are released.
HDMI ARC (audio return channel) allows easy and extraordinarily high-fidelity integration with TVs and theater systems. McIntosh's proprietary MCT connector also allows connection to a McIntosh SACD transport with native DSD decoding occurring in the C2700's superb DAC.
The analog circuitry has not been neglected. McIntosh has improved upon the already standard-setting performance of the C2600. The tubed MC and MM phono sections have 45% and 55% less noise than their predecessors, a stunning reduction for an already dead-silent preamplifier.
We anticipate significant initial demand for the C2700 with first shipments in August 2019. Pearl Audio has ordered several units to give our customers the best chance of obtaining a C2700 without delay. Call to reserve your C2700.
