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: Very Good Used Condition Shipping Options: Shipping is included in price. Suburb or Town: Buderim State: QLD Payment Method: PayPal as a Friend Reason for selling: Buying a Scotty Cameron Newport 2.5 Further information: The Scotty Cameron Fastback with 2 x 20gram weights was released onto the US Tour in 2008. One of this design went to the Scotty Cameron Custom Shop in California and was called "Americana" when it emerged. Typically the putter is decked out in Red, White and Blue colours. The putter is 34 inches long and Right Handed. The only non-original addition is the Scoytty Cameron Grey Pistol Grip I added recently; the original had the Black and Red Pistolini grip. The putter comes with an Original Custom Shop Grip (unused) and another Scotty grip used when playing. The putter is in great shape ...no rust (WD40) and some paint wear on the sole of the club. A Scotty Cameron Oil Cloth and a Club Cameron Divot Tool are included. Please contact me for other information.
