Called McIntosh’s “most revered tube amplifier,” the sixth generation of the MC275 is electronically and functionally identical to the 50th anniversary edition, without the badging or the gold chassis.

Pushing 75 watts a channel thru a quad of KT88 (or 6550) tubes, no one really has to know how well your vintage amplifier has “aged.” Just how it sounds.
