C53 Stereo Preamplifier

The C53 Preamplifier is ready to serve in your home audio system for many years – even decades – all while delivering unmatched audio quality. Following the digital audio precedent set in McIntosh's current line of solid state integrated amplifiers, the C53 stereo preamplifier features an upgradeable digital audio module. But unlike the integrated amplifiers that use the DA1 Digital Audio Module, the C53 is the first to use the new, more advanced DA2 Digital Audio Module.
