Since then, this legendary amp has continued to evolve, and set new standards for quality, musicality and reliability. Amazingly, even after 50 years, many of the very first MC275 amps are still in use and prized by their owners today. Our new Limited Edition amp celebrates the original for everything it is – and everything it has meant to generations of McIntosh customers for ‘bringing their music to life.’ This is truly a golden anniversary for the MC275, and years from now, music lovers who purchase a Limited Edition model will still be enjoying their investment in great sound!”
