McIntosh Preamps: Vacuum Tube and Solid State Preamplifiers

Since the 1940s, McIntosh products have been at the forefront of the high fidelity audio world. While most of the audio world has transitioned to solid-state amplifiers and preamps, McIntosh tube preamps deliver a warmth and smoothness that's hard to replicate without vacuum tubes. However, if you're looking for a cleaner sound from a preamp that requires less maintenance, McIntosh also makes exceptional solid-state models you're sure to love.

The secret to McIntosh's unbelievable sound quality is their attention to detail. Nearly every component within their products is made in their Binghamton, NY factory. From cutting and etching the glass for their tubes to winding and potting transformers, everything is done in house. This level of control allows McIntosh stereo preamplifiers to outperform virtually all of their competition. As a result, they've become a staple of professional and home audio systems where compromise is not an option.

Whatever music sources you enjoy, McIntosh preamps will make the most of them. The majority of models support both analog and digital music thanks to the advanced DA2 Digital Audio Module installed within them. The DA2 improves upon the DA1 Digital Audio Module with an audio-only HDMI Audio Return Channel. This additional port allows you to easily enjoy audio from your TV over your home theater speakers. Plus phono inputs for both moving coil and moving magnet cartridges allow you to pair McIntosh preamps with any turntable.

Need help deciding which McIntosh preamplifier is right for your system? Let the professionals in our Custom Audio and Video Department offer their expertise to assist you in your decision making. You can touch base with them via phone at 847.544.2307 or via email at [email protected]. They'll answer any questions you may have and can explain the finer points of home audio to ensure your system sounds just the way you like it. They can even set up a time to have our professional installers come to your home to set everything up!
