    Think the Pre is more interesting than the amp. My guess is the pre is a re boxed c22 and the amp is just two 275's in one chassis.

    Re: McIntosh to Celebrate its 70th Anniversary with a special Limited Edition Commemorative System

    Further details on both pieces available here, including pricing:

    "Now the bad news, the MC2152 70th Anniversary Vacuum Tube Amplifier and the C70 70th Anniversary Vacuum Tube Preamplifier aren't free. As a limited edition commemorative system the price is $22,000. This system can be ordered today at any authorized McIntosh dealer. Once these systems are gone, again only 70 of them will be made, each component can be purchased separately. The MC2152 70th Anniversary Vacuum Tube Amplifier is $15,000 USD and the C70 70th Anniversary Vacuum Tube Preamplifier is $7,000 USD."

    Yea, knew they would charge over $20k.... Half of those who might want them could never afford them.

    I agree, the pre-amp looks a lot more interesting then the amplifier. Does anyone know how limited editions these are. I do not see any of the online retailers advertising them.

    So basically, even if you wanted to get one they were probably already gone before McIntosh even announced the models.

    So typical...

    Re: McIntosh to Celebrate its 70th Anniversary with a special Limited Edition Commemorative System

    The McIntosh email I received today said this:

    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.

    So the first 70 were only sold in matching pairs. I guess I understand the reasoning behind this. It is nice that they will continue selling the units separately without the Commemorative "x of 70" markings...
