McIntosh C2500 Preamplifier and MC452 Power Amplifier

January 5, 2016


Edgar Kramer has posted a review of the McIntosh C2500 preamplifier ($6500) and MC452 power amplifier ($7500) at AVHub. His conclusions:

“The McIntosh C2500 and MC452 excel at spectacular dynamic expression, beautiful and accurate tonality, satisfying detail retrieval, and the recreation of a generous soundfield. All these qualities will satisfy the most demanding audio hobbyist. Further, if a single expression could be used to absolutely encapsulate what this combo’s sonics is about, it would be the word ‘natural’. Actually, add another one — ‘honesty’. And it’s both of these characteristics that capture the music lover.”
