Founded by Frank McIntosh a.k.a. Mr. Mac in 1949, McIntosh is celebrating it’s 70th anniversary in 2019. To commemorate this milestone, there is a 70th Anniversary Limited Edition Commemorative Systems available. Each Commemorative System is comprised of two new audio products: the MC2152 70th Anniversary Vacuum Tube Amplifier and the C70 70th Anniversary Vacuum Tube Preamplifier. Both products in each Commemorative System are specially marked and have matching serial numbers. A ‘For the love of music’ McIntosh History Book is also included and contains a certificate authenticating the entire system. For each of these 70 Limited Edition Commemorative Systems sold, McIntosh will donate $1,000 to global humanitarian organization Save the Children. Founded in 1919, Save the Children will also mark a milestone anniversary in 2019 with the celebration of its centennial. In the United States and around the world, they give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. As you can imagine, all 70 Commemorative Systems sold out virtually overnight. But worry not, the non-Commemorative System versions of the MC2152 70th Anniversary Vacuum Tube Amplifier and the C70 70th Anniversary Vacuum Tube Preamplifier are now available to order separately. Each will still have 70th Anniversary markings on them just like those in the Commemorative Systems, but unlike the units in the Commemorative Systems, they will not have matching serial numbers nor special Commemorative System “1 of 70” markings on them.
