McIntosh C22 2-Channel Vacuum Tube Preamplifier Mk V

Introducing the McIntosh C22 Mk V, a 2-channel vacuum tube preamplifier that seamlessly blends retro aesthetics with cutting-edge technology. As the direct successor to the celebrated C70 Limited Edition 70th Anniversary model, the C22 Mk V inherits the outstanding performance while embracing the iconic C22 designation.

McIntosh C22 Mk V Key Features:

  • All analog design for pure audio excellence
  • (5) 12AX7A and (1) 12AT7 vacuum tubes for rich, immersive sound
  • Moving Coil and Moving Magnet phono inputs for versatile connectivity

Design and Functionality: The C22 Mk V showcases a timeless design with a glass panel revealing its one 12AT7 and five 12AX7A vacuum tubes. Modern LED lights indicate input selection and volume level, while knobs and rocker switches ensure easy control. The front panel houses bypassable bass and treble tone controls, allowing adjustments in 2dB increments.

Connectivity and Flexibility: Featuring two balanced inputs, three unbalanced inputs, and both Moving Coil and Moving Magnet phono inputs, the C22 Mk V offers a total of seven inputs. Dual pairs of balanced and unbalanced output connections enable signal routing to two separate power amplifiers. Adjustable impedance and capacitance for phono inputs provide customization for your preferences.

Advanced Audio Enhancement: The ¼” headphone jack, powered by the High Drive headphone amplifier, incorporates Headphone Crossfeed Director (HXD®) technology. This technology enhances sound localization, replicating the directionality normally experienced with loudspeakers.

Smart Integration and Control: Equipped with Power Control technology, the C22 Mk V can automatically manage other connected McIntosh components. Four power control ports enable seamless interaction with amplifiers, CD players, or turntables. Data ports and a rear-panel IR sensor input, coupled with the included remote control, allow easy command over McIntosh source components.
