Further information: Up for sale is my McIntosh C2200 tube preamplifier. This unit presents in immaculate condition as per pictures below with only minor handling marks on the casework. 

 

When released in 2003 this was Mcintosh's first tube preamplifier released in nearly 30 years. It was designed by Sidney Corderman who designed much of their gear in the 60's and is a sought after unit having a higher compliment of tubes than current offerings from McIntosh. A recent video review by a Canadian dealer compares this favourably to McIntosh's latest C2700 offering noting the C2200 has a more 'tube like sound' than the newer units which are hybrid design. This unit was available in Mcintosh's catalogue for about 8 years.

 

This unit has been fitted with a full complement of Gold Lion gold pin reissue 12AX7 and 12AT7 in both the phono stage (750 hours use fitted 12 months ago) and line stage (300 hours use fitted 4 months ago). These take the sound of the unit to a whole new level compared to the standard Mcintosh tubes issued in the 2000's. This unit has had an LED lamp kit fitted to replace the incandescent bulbs as well as new genuine light boxes and filters behind the VU meters. It also includes an HR093 remote control which is in new condition and much more economic than the factory remote.


This unit is versatile with 4 balanced inputs, 7 unbalanced inputs including a brilliant MM Phono stage and 3 sets of outputs (balanced and unbalanced) as well as programmable power trigger controls for each. It has many other features such as a 214 step digital volume control with optical encoder for very precise volume control and level matching between channels, input reassignment, tone override function per input, mono/stereo selector, tape monitor loop for recording to analog medium as well as home theatre bypass, not to mention those beautiful blue VU meters. Signal to noise ratio is stellar with no background hiss from either the line or phono stage.

 

I have been using this with my McIntosh MC275 for a 18 months and really enjoy its liquid midrange and great detail at either end of the spectrum.

 

A review of this unit can be found here; https://www.stereophile.com/tubepreamps/577/index.html and here for the recent if not somewhat lengthy review Audio Excellence Mcintosh C2200

 

Audition available. Pickup from Richmond, Melbourne. I don't have a box for this unit and therefore reluctant to post unless you wish to make your own arrangements.

 

You can see a video of my the unit in action here filmed early Jan 2021: 

 

As well as a demo of the phono stage running through a SUT (excuse average quality video on this one).

      Item Condition: Used Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Regents Park State: NSW Payment Method: Cash on Pickup, EFT Reason for selling: NLR Further information:
       
      (PRICE DROPPED) $1900 --> $1700
       
      The DM2000 is a two-way, three-driver floorstanding speakers. The bass and midrange frequencies are handled  7-inch woofer and a passive Acoustically Driven Radiator (ADR) of the same size. Crossover frequencies above 3,000 Hz are radiated by a 1-inch dome tweeter.
      An electronic time delay (ETD) circuit is built into the DM2000's crossover-network system. The crossover filter proper is a fourth-order Butterworth design with steep, 24-dB-per-octave slopes in the stop-bands.
       
      Each speaker weight around 25kg.
      Cabinet is kept in great condition, however one of the speaker's top rear glass corner is chipped during moving house but it does not affect the sound. Also, one of the speaker's bottom "DM-2000" badge is missing.
       
      Had this pair of speakers serviced at "Speaker Hospital" in April 2020. which cost around $1300 (service invoice attached).
      Also, new speaker terminal has been replaced with modern terminal.
      It sound way better than the time i just acquired it.  
      But time to clear out some equipment to raise fund for other upgrade.
