C22 STEREO PREAMPLIFIER
GENERAL DESCRIPTION The Mclntosh C22 Stereophonic Preamplifier is a control center for any stereophonic sound system. To increase your enjoyment of stereo, this control center does four jobs with precise control. First, the control center amplifies weak electrical impulses. As the record rotates on the turntable, undulations in the grooves move the pickup stylus approximately one thousandth of an inch, in any direction, from the rest position. From this slight mechanical movement, the pickup stylus generates a weak electrical impulse on the order of a few thousandths of a volt. To amplify and preserve the information in such an electrical impulse, the finest amplifier performance is required. Second, every sound system is used in a different acoustical environment. The tone balance of the music is affected by variations in environment. Also, people listening to the music have varying ideas of correct tone balance. To compensate for these conditions, a high-quality tone control center is needed. Third, all stereophonic and monophonic records, both domestic and foreign, are recorded with specific frequency equalization. The control center must accurately compensate for this equalization introduced in the recording process. Fourth, programs can originate from several sources such as tuners, records, tape machines, microphones, etc. A control center is needed to select and switch these sources separately or in combination. All of these jobs are performed with excellence by the C22. The C22 also uses the new, exclusive Mclntosh PANLOC method of installation. The PANLOC system gives you absolute ease of installation, operation, and maintenance. PANLOC is the first professional installation technique to be used on stereo instruments. In the PANLOC system a metal shelf is mounted first, then the preamplifier slides into position on this shelf. Depressing the PANLOC buttons on the front panel locks the preamplifier firmly into place for normal operation. To unlock the preamplifier, depress the front panel PANLOC buttons a second time. The preamplifier can now slide forward to the ADJUST position. The preamplifier will lock in this position approximately 3 inches from the mounting panel. Now you can adjust the output level controls, low frequency trim controls, tape equalization controls, phase switch and pilot lamp intensity switch. These controls are mounted just behind the C22 front panel. Depressing the ADJUST position holding latches on the sides of the chassis allows the preamplifier to be taken out of the PANLOC shelf, or to slide back into position against the mounting panel. Once you have enjoyed the outstanding performance of the C22, you will understand why Mclntosh products have earned their reputation as "THE BEST." Your Mclntosh C22 Stereophonic control preamplifier will give you years of the finest possible performance, and will become a highly valued part of your home music system.
TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION The C22 Stereophonic Preamplifier combines excellence in performance with ease of operation. The most often used controls have large diameter knobs. A new type of rocker switch is used for the controls with simple on-off functions. The C22 has an illuminated front panel with a light intensity switch to provide convenient reading under low-level lighting conditions. The Mode and Input Selector switch positions are also illuminated. The C22 circuit consists of 3 amplifier sections in duplicate for the left and right stereo channels together with a common power supply. The first amplifier section is

H.F. (HIGH-FREQUENCY FILTER)
Use the C22 TAPE switch to know instantaneously, as you are recording, that the music on the tape is acceptable. The C22 TAPE switch makes it possible to instantaneously compare recorded material with the source signal. Tape jacks on the back panel accept a signal from a tape recorder with a monitor head and preamplifier. NORMAL. the program source is fed through the power amplifiers and the loudspeakers. MONITOR. the signal source becomes the monitored program from the recorded tape and is fed through the power amplifiers and loudspeakers. POWER The C22 and four black receptacles on the back panel are turned on and off by the POWER switch.

this position, additional controls on top of the C22 chassis are available; the PHASE switch, LOW FREQUENCY TRIM CONTROLS, OUTPUT LEVEL CONTROLS, TAPE EQUALIZATION CONTROLS, and the PILOT LAMP INTENSITY switch. PILOT LAMP INTENSITY Use the PILOT LAMP INTENSITY to switch the front panel pilot lamps to DIM or BRIGHT. TAPE EQUALIZATION Use the TAPE EQUALIZATION controls to compensate for 3% tape speed for individual tape head characteristics. These controls should be set to NAB for normal 7.5 inch tape speed machines. Turning the TAPE EQUALIZATION controls clockwise increases the treble response; turning them counterclockwise decreases treble response. OUTPUT LEVEL CONTROLS Use the OUTPUT LEVEL controls to balance the overall amplifier-speaker system. The minimum setting on each control reduces the output level approximately 15 db. The L + R (left plus right) control adjusts only the output from the L + R output jack. This control can turn the L + R signal completely off. LOW FREQUENCY TRIM CONTROLS Use these controls to adjust for unequal speaker response at low frequencies due to room location of speakers. Approximately 6 db of boost below 100 cycles is available.
Figure 12. LOUDNESS switch.
Use the LOUDNESS switch in the COMPENSATED position to listen at low volume and still hear full-frequency range. When you turn down the volume, the music will seem to lose much of its bass and some of its treble. This effect is due to the sensitivity characteristics of human hearing. The response of the human ear to bass and treble pitch decreases more rapidly than its response to notes centered in the midtonal range. The LOUDNESS switch automatically provides the correct amount of bass and treble boost required to compensate for this change in response of the human ear at low-loudness levels. When the LOUDNESS switch is moved to the COMPENSATED position, it converts the volume control to a loudness compensated control.
CONTROLS BEHIND THE FRONT PANEL
Depressing the PANLOC buttons allows the C22 to slide forward to a point approximately 3 inches from the mounting panel. In
Figure 13. Controls Behind the Front Panel.
PANLOC BUTTONS At the bottom front corners are the PANLOC buttons. After a preamplifier is installed on the PANLOC shelf, depressing the PANLOC buttons will lock the preamplifier firmly in position. Depressing the PANLOC buttons a second time (as with a ball-point pen) will release the preamplifier. The pre-
amplifier can then be slid forward to the inspection and adjustment position. Releasing the ADJUST position latches allows you to slide the preamplifier completely out of its mounting shelf, or back into normal operating position. The PANLOC system gives you absolute ease of installation, operation and maintenance.
INSTALLATION The C22 can be installed in conventional furniture cabinets, custom built installations or professional relay racks. If the unit is to be placed on a shelf or table-top, it is recommended that it be housed in a Mclntosh cabinet. The C22 installs conveniently from the front of the cabinet by sliding into its PANLOC shelf. To support the weight of the C22, the wood panel used to mount it should be at least inch thick. The C22 installation should allow approximately 14 inches behind the front panel to mount the PANLOC shelf and allow for connecting wires. To allow sufficient space for the circulating air, the desirable minimum internal cabinet dimensions should be 16 inches and 5 inches respectively.
AC CONNECTIONS There are five AC outlets on the rear panel of the C22(See Figurel4.) These receptacles have a maximum rating of 660 watts total. The power to the four black receptacles is controlled by the POWER switch on the front panel. The red receptacle is not switched. The red receptacle is used for powering a turntable or record changer. The receptacle
is not switched so that the turntable power will not be turned off while the turntable idler wheel is engaged. The turntable is protected by this arrangement because it is necessary to turn off the turntable with its own control switch so that no damage will result to the turntable drive system.
Figure 14. A-C Connections.
Plug the AC power cord in 105 volt to 125 volt, 50 to 60 cycle power line. The power used by the C22 is 34 watts.
INPUT CONNECTIONS The C22 provides eight separate program
inputs controlled by the I N P U T SELECTOR switch. One input for tape monitor or tape comparison is controlled by the TAPE switch. The input program connections should be made in accordance with Table 1.

OUTPUT CONNECTIONS There are two sets of outputs on the left half of the back panel. (See Figure 15) One pair is marked M A I N. The second pair is marked TAPE. The M A I N outputs connect to power amplifiers (figure 17). The TAPE output feeds a tape recorder. The MAIN jacks are fed from cathode followers. Longer cables than are normally supplied can be connected between the C22 and the amplifiers. The length of the cable is limited by the capacity of the cable. The total capacity must not exceed 1000 mmf. For
instance: cables with a capacity of 25 mmf per foot may be 40 feet long; 13.5 mmf per foot cable may be 75 feet long. The input impedance of the amplifiers should be 50,000 ohms or greater. The TAPE output is fed from a cathode follower. The program material fed out of the TAPE output is not affected by these front panel controls: VOLUME control, BASS controls, LF and HF filter switches, BALANCE control, LOUD switch, TAPE switch, PHASE switch, TREBLE controls, and MODE SELECTOR switch. The program material fed out of the TAPE output is affected by these front panel con-
COMPENSATED position. 7. Place the TAPE switch in the MONITOR position. 8. Place the PHASE switch in the 0 position. 9. Place the RUMBLE filter switch in the FLAT position. 10. Place the H.F. cutoff filter switch in the FLAT position. 11. Turn the MODE SELECTOR to the L + R TO L position. 12. While the program is playing, alternate the MODE SELECTOR between the L + R TO R and the L + R TO L position. On amplifiers such as the MC225, adjust the correct gain control until the loudspeakers are of equal loudness. On the MC240 or the MC275, turn the balance control u n t i l the loudspeakers are of equal loudness. The stereo system is now balanced. It will remain balanced through all modes of operation. Leave the C22 extended on its PANLOC stops for the next series of adjustments.
ADJUSTING FOR SPECIAL EFFECTS HF CUTOFF FILTER
If you wish to reproduce old, badly worn records, you can minimize the surface noise by switching the HF cutoff filter to the IN position.
If you are using a turntable or changer which has low-frequency rumble noise, you may reduce it by pushing the R U M B L E filter switch to the FILTER position.
BASS CONTROLS AND TREBLE CONTROLS
The tone balance which you hear when listening to an orchestra is affected by the conductor's instructions to his musicians, the acoustical environment in which you are listening, and your own subjective hearing interpretation. Considering these conditions, it is easy to see why tone balance controls play a major role in correcting for the following factors: 1. Each person's subjective idea of tone balance. 2. Loudspeaker frequency response characteristics. 3. Loudspeaker placement in the listening room. 4. The conductor's idea of tone balance at the time the recording was made. 5. The microphone frequency response characteristics. 6. The recording process influences. These factors can be considered as environmental influences. The BASS CONTROLS and TREBLE CONTROLS provide a degree of compensation for effects of environment. Listen to your system with each control set with the indicators centered between the panel markings L and R. If you wish to reduce treble in relation to bass for example, turn the T R E B L E CONTROLS counterclockwise until the tone balance sounds correct to you. These controls will modify tone balance without i n t r o d u c i n g any u n d e sirable effects. Do not be surprised if you find your preference in tone changing from time to time.
1. Set the MODE SELECTOR to STEREO. 2. Turn the BASS controls and T R E B L E controls to straight up position so that the dial indicator centers between the panel markings L and R. Stand approximately 10 feet in front of and midway between the loudspeakers. The source of sound should appear to be directly in front of you. Alternate the PHASE switch between 0 and 180. If the sound is not directly in front of you in the 0 position, reverse the leads to one loudspeaker. The PHASE control is used to correct phase in the source material whenever necessary.
ADJUSTING BALANCE CONTROL AFTER THE SYSTEM HAS BEEN BALANCED
When these instructions have been completed, the overall system is balanced and in phase; ready to deliver maximum pleasure and enjoyment. You may hear differences in balance from one record to another or from one tape to another. Some records or tapes may be recorded with slight differences between channels. The differences can be corrected with the BALANCE control on the front panel. If the difference is heard on every record, then the cartridge may have a very small difference in output.
Due to a selective shift in sensitivity of human hearing, music reproduced at very low volume loses its bass and treble.
The LOUDNESS switch on the C22 changes the VOLUME control to a loudness compensated control to correct for this effect. When you wish to listen to music at a greatly reduced loudness level and yet hear bass and treble in their proper relationships, set the LOUDNESS switch to the IN position.
PHASE If the stereo sound seems to come from either side of the room instead of being distributed between the loudspeakers, adjust the PHASE control to 180. This listening effect is due to reproducing sound that is out of phase from one channel to the other. You will find some records differ from others in this respect and that some tapes differ from records. LISTENING TO A STEREO TUNER 1. Turn the INPUT SELECTOR to TUNER 1 or TUNER 2. 2.

The portable tape machine is now connected and any program originating in this machine will be heard through the C22, and will also be available from the C22 TAPE OUTPUT to drive the permanent tape machine input. This feature allows you to copy a tape from the portable machine into your permanent machine, provided your permanent machine has its own recording preamplifier. To record on the portable machine plug the two phono pin plugs of the two C22 cables into the i n p u t of the portable machine. Leave the telephone plugs connected to the C22 telephone jacks on the front panel. Operate the TAPE JACK switch to the RECORD position. The permanent tape machine will be reconnected. Now any program picked up by the INPUT SELECTOR switch will be available to drive the portable machine. You can now make a copy on the portable machine of any tape played on the permanent machine. You can copy any other program source onto both tape machines at the same time. When recording from one tape machine to
Two tape machines can be used with the C22 Stereophonic Preamplifier. After you have connected your tape machine to the rear panel of the preamplifier someone may desire to bring i.n a portable machine to make a copy of one of your tapes or to listen to one of his tapes on your system. With the C22 you no longer have to unplug your permanent machine. The C22 is supplied with two cables. The cables have phone plugs on one end to plug into the front panel of the C22 and pin jacks on the other end to plug into any tape machine. (Adapters are available at any Hi-Fi retailer to permit pin plugs to connect with phone jacks.) To listen to the portable or second tape machine plug the pin jack end of the two C22 cables, mentioned above, into the tape machine output. Connect the telephone plugs into the telephone jacks on the C22 front panel. The left jack supplies the left channel. The right jack supplies the right channel. Turn the I N P U T SELECTOR switch to TAPE. When the TAPE JACK control is turned to the PLAYBACK position, the permanent tape machine output is discon-
