Fancy a complete high end system from McIntosh & Sonus Faber at a saving of over $35,000?
We’re making space in our listening rooms for some new setups so are reluctantly clearing these display products (plus a brand-new McIntosh MC462 Amplifier). It’s your opportunity to seriously upgrade your kit at a never-to-be-repeated saving.
The package consists of:
With the Il Cremonese Sonus faber pays homage to the great master Antonio Stradivari, the luthier and artist who revolutionised traditional violin craftsmanship, and continued the work of Andrea Amati to create new concepts of form and finishing that are still appreciated today.
It’s a no-compromise high end loudspeaker, epitomising Sonus Faber’s philosophy of beautiful craftsmanship and leading edge technology marrying in a perfect whole.
Some key technical innovations include:
- Stealth Reflex System – allowing for a reduction in the dimensions of the internal acoustic volume while providing distortion control, it uses two orthogonal ports: one on the back for the midwoofer, and the other on the base, facing the floor, for the woofers and infrawoofers
- Zero Vibration Transmission system – used for decoupling the speaker’s cabinet from the floor and the rest of the listening environment, this is implemented in a revolutionary way inside the floor spikes. This new system continues to use new, modern elastomers, and guarantees a further simplification in the construction and aesthetic lightness
- Upper and lower “Dampshelves” – two massive slabs of black brushed Avional, operating as mechanical energy dampers generated by Il Cremonese’s powerful drivers
- “Staggered Low Frequencies Emission Technology” system – used for the first time since “the Sonus faber” project, it optimizes the performance of the integrated infrawoofers
The MT2 comes with a moving coil cartridge that has a high enough output to make it compatible with not only moving coil phono inputs but also moving magnet inputs. The tonearm is constructed from dural-aluminium with special damping materials and is light weight yet highly rigid. The DC motor is driven by an external voltage-stabilised power supply and is completely decoupled from the chassis, isolating your records from any mechanical interference.
C52 Pre Amplifier
The C52 is the most advanced single chassis solid state pre-amplifier McIntosh have made. This feature packed stereo preamp lets you connect virtually any of your analogue components and digital music sources – including those that play the latest high resolution formats such as DSD files – to one easy-to-use device to enjoy them all.
“I can’t think of another component that manages to do so much so superlatively well, with no compromises in any ways that matter to me as an audio critic and music lover.” – The Absolute Sound
MC462 Amplifier (Brand new)
At 450 watts per channel, the MC462 is the most powerful McIntosh stereo amplifier and utilises the latest advancements in circuit design. With the MC462, the components are deployed in the classic McIntosh Quad Balanced design that cancels noise for impeccable audio performance.
“An extraordinarily well-engineered, exceptionally powerful amplifier… Highly recommended – insisted on, even.” – Stereophile
