Since 1947, when McIntosh introduced its power amplifier design using its patented bifilar-wound dual-primary output transformer, the brand’s power amps have been considered the performance standard. The MC75 in considered one of the best tube classic amps of all times, while the C22 Preamplifier is the perfect “control center”. Now McIntosh decided to bring back those two classic designs.
The McIntosh MX-113 was available new from 1971 until 1980 with a selling price of $1,100.00. While all McIntosh components present unmatched value, the MX-113 is one of the best-valued McIntosh component of all time. It incorporates all the major design elements of the C26 preamp and MR74 tuner in a single chassis. With this 5th generation combo component, McIntosh engineers were able to quite successfully combine tuner and preamp.
