McIntosh ushers in the festivities with an upgraded take on the MC275. Now in its fifth incarnation the McIntosh 50th Anniversary Limited Edition MC275 Tube Amplifier is rated at 75WPC and
equipped with the unity-couple circuit. While the gold-plated exterior
makes for a sleek and sophisticated look, the flowing, orange LED
lights, moving in succession from left to right, are what make this
beast of an amplifier stand out.
As with its predecessors, the limited edition uses four KT88
power-output tubes, three 12AX7A input and phase-inverter tubes, and
four 12AT7 voltage-amplifier and driver tubes. Retro sounds don’t come
cheap though – housed in a special edition box with commemorative book,
the Limited Edition MC275 will set you back a whopping USD 6500.
