McIntosh C2200 798,000yen(including-tax. around the 2007 time)

The thermionic-tube preamplifier which Sydney Caux Daman which began C22 and MC275 and designed 50th anniversary model MC2000 developed since the performance of MC2000/MC2102 had been harnessed.

The VRV (Variable Rate Volume) digital electronic volume of 214 steps is adopted per 0.5dB, and highly precise volume control is enabled like the analog volume. Moreover, the operation stabilized for a long period of time is realized with the structure strong also against secular change of a contact.

The electromagnetic switch which enclosed inert gas is adopted. The distorted signal switchover which is not is enabled without waking up poor contact over a long period of time, since it is strong to oxidization.

The blue-eyes meter of a right-and-left independency is carried, and an Output voltage is monitored in a range over 70dB.

The automatic turn-on delay is carried, the mute of the output is carried out until it will be in the status that the thermionic tube can get warm and output, and the influence of the noise by an external equipment etc. is reduced.
