McIntosh C46 735,000yen(including-tax. around the 2007 time)

The audio control center which carries 8 band equalizer and abundant output-terminals in the basic performance of pure signal transmission.

The coordination united with the source which eight frequencies carry 8 band equalizer which can be adjusted in the span which is ±12dB, respectively, and reproduce, or a listening room is possible. Moreover, the center position of each knob is a flat position which bypasses a circuitry.

The VRV (Variable Rate Volume) digital electronic volume of 214 steps is adopted as a volume per 0.5dB, and the volume can be controlled like an analog volume.
Moreover, it has a structure strong against secular change of a contact, and the operation stabilized for a long period of time is possible.

Eight input terminals serve as a programmable.

The electromagnetic switch which enclosed inert gas is adopted, it is strong to oxidization, and poor contact is not woken up over a long period of time, but the distorted signal changeover which is not is possible.

The illumination structure by the optical diffusion fiber which raised the visibility without spoiling an appearance design is adopted as a fluorescent-light display device.
