Lyd & Bilde: The McIntosh C2600 is one of the "finest preamplifiers we've tested"

The C2600 is a feature packed and versatile vacuum tube preamplifier, with its 16 inputs ranging from balanced to phono to digital connections. "The built-in phono stage is brilliant," says reviewer Lasse Svendsen of Norway's Lyd & Bilde. "It delivers absolutely no noise, even with low-voltage MC pickups. It's perfectly balanced and has outstanding channel separation."

"The McIntosh C2600 is among the finest preamplifiers we've tested. It has everything you need in one cabinet, which looks much more expensive than it is. The sound of C2600 is so natural, and it does not matter what kind of input you use."
