Smile Re: McIntosh Labs C220 Stereo Preamp

For years, McIntosh has been a favorite of mine. Their reputation of build quality, and reliability I always felt were second to none. And it is great within the last 2 - 3 years to see mags like Stereophile and the Absolute Sound begin to review them again. Also, i take some pride in that they are built in the USA. Binghamton, N.Y. They still offer a two hour tour where you can experience how they build these amplifiers.

This summer I plan to take it.
A great review for a great company that has stood the test o time.

Stay tuned, for there are going to be two more McIntosh products featured in AVRev.com in the coming months. Like I've said before, they're a personal favorite of mine.

Thumbs up Re: McIntosh Labs C220 Stereo Preamp

I enjoyed the review; the Mc sounds like a great Preamp.

Curious to know if anyone reading this has ever checked out Supratek's Chardonnay Preamp. I bought one late last year and was so impressed by it, I recently acquired a pair of their 100wpc Monoblocks to mate with it. Now, I have trouble picking my jaw up off the floor while listening to my system. : )

Vastly different background between the two companies - about as far apart as could be in every aspect from size to design philosophy (electrical and asthetics).

If interested, check out Supratek at Supratek Amazing gear, and very pretty, too...
