McIntosh’s vacuum tube integrated amplifier, the MA2275, combines classic vacuum tube performance – renowned for its ‘warm’ sound – with cutting-edge technology, says distributor, Castel.

The MA2275 is the first McIntosh integrated amplifier to rely exclusively on vacuum tubes in all audio circuits.

A low-noise preamp has been engineered. Glass epoxy printed circuit boards replace traditional point-to-point wiring. Input switching is achieved inside glass cylinders filled with an inert gas to prevent sign degradation.

The circuit design of the power amplifier incorporates McIntosh unity-coupled output circuitry which is claimed to provide clean, low distortion power over the entire frequency range.

Rated at 75 watts per channel into 2, 4, or 8 ohm loads the MA2275 uses four 12AX7A’s in the preamplifier section, two 12AT7’s and four KT88/6550 in the power-amp section.

Castel says low noise combined with clean power in an all vacuum tube integrated chassis provides for incredible results.
