Mcintosh C26 Preamplifier

Mcintosh C26 Preamplifier (1967, $449 original MSRP)

In 1967, the Mcintosh C26 preamplifier replaced the C24. This was the first preamplifier to have an all glass front panel, which matched the new MC 2505 power amplifier. It was assigned a project number of P 216. The requirements had already been determined by Gordon Gow, based on his marketing research.  Some of the circuitry was already being used in the MAC 1700 receiver, but several features were revised and several new ones added.

    I’ve had one of these preamps since 1974. It has never given me any trouble at all. I plan on taking it to Terry DeWick this spring for a through check-up and possible re-cap. I f you find one for sale… get it!

    Had one in college and it is a great preamp, Traded up to the C-28 and never liked it as much. A classic.
