The worlds best mono block amplifier?

The MC-2301 mono block is considered by many as the best amplifier in the world. Balanced, unity coupled vacuum tube design and a crazy 67kgs per amp (and yes, you will need two for any reference stereo system). Probably the best example of McIntosh’s valve amps and why McIntosh has such a dominance in large valve amplifier market. If you are lucky enough to listen to a set of these amps, then perhaps you can die happy. The MC-2301 design is fully balanced from input to speaker output and the first ever McIntosh tube amplifier to include Quad-Differential circuitry. A blend of tube and solid state devices comprise a super-linear input stage and the output stage, based upon eightKT88 power tubes, terminates in a custom multifilar wound output transformer providing very low distortion and wide power bandwidth. The result? A staggering 117dB signal to noise ratio combined with vanishingly low distortion to provide remarkable low-level linearity and unmatched liquidity.
