McINTOSH C52 PREAMPLIFIER RECEIVES EXCEPTIONAL VALUE AWARD FROM TONE AUDIO MAGAZINE


The C52 preamplifier and MC301​ amplifier were recently reviewed by Tone Audio magazine. As a result, Tone Audio has bestowed a 2016 Exceptional Value Award on the C52.

The C52 preamplifier is "a control center in every sense of the word; it’s got a fantastic MM and MC phonostage built in, a headphone amplifier with their new crossfeed circuit and a full blown DSD DAC – all on board! Throw in a pair of super cool, glowing, blue meters, an 8-band equalizer, as well as the capability for 16 inputs and you have the Death Star of high end audio. You will rule your world with the C52. Cool as all this is, it sounds fantastic too. No one combines just the right amount of bling and performance as McIntosh – that’s why they are a legend."

We are honored to receive this award and kind words from Tone Audio. Download​ issue 80 to see all the award winners.
