McIntosh C500 Controller and C500T Valve Preamp
Excellent condition with original packaging
The McIntosh C500 stereo preamplifier is a no-holds-barred, fully balanced, dual-mono design with separate power supplies. Featured here with a tube design and separate chassis controller, the C500 preamplifier combines outstanding audio performance with flexible user-programmability. Moving Coil and Moving Magnet phono preamplifiers are both supported. The preamplifier also features high open-loop gain, enabling the use of negative feedback around the compensation amplifiers for very low noise and distortion and markedly improved RIAA performance.
The McIntosh C500 is a two-chassis design, with separate Preamplifier and Controller chassis. The dual-chassis design completely separates all power supply, microprocessor, and control circuits from the pure audio circuits for total noise isolation. To further aid in channel isolation, the circuitry for both channels is totally separate, physically isolated, and shielded. The C500 incorporates two identical power supplies (one for each channel) to help assure total channel isolation.
