Product Description

The original McIntosh MC275 stereo tube power amplifier is a thing of beauty. Looking at it one can only stare in awe at its craftsmanship and design. That alone would not be enough if it did not perform equally well to the task of reproducing music with grace and power.
Manufactured in Binghamton New York from May 1961 through July 1973,after twelve years McIntosh finally laid the original 275 to rest. McIntosh, along with many other manufactures during that time, switched over to making transistor-designed amps. The thought back then was that transistor amps produced more power for less money and you did not have to fuss with tubes. Looking back at that day in audio history, I wish Frank McIntosh and Gordon Gow would have changed their mind. If only in that final day of MC275 production they had decided to keep the 275 as well as producing transistor amps.
The MC275 certainly was a great love to many an audiophile then and now. It wasn’t until 1993 that McIntosh reissued the MC275 to the delight of audiophiles worldwide.
