We’re building up our range of McIntosh in store, and have just added four new products for your listening pleasure:
MCT-450 2 channel CD/SACD Transport
The MCT450 can be paired with any McIntosh product that contains digital inputs. This includes select home theatre processors, integrated amplifiers and pre-amplifiers. Digital balanced, coaxial, optical and DIN outputs are available, giving you flexibility in connecting the MCT450 to the rest of your system.
All common disc types are compatible with the MCT450, including SACD, CD, CD-R, and CD-RW (MP3 and WMA). A twin laser optical pickup assures optimal disc reading while 2x read speed provides better reading of damaged CDs.
MC-601 Monoblock Power Amplifiers x 2
The MC601 monoblock amplifier produces an extraordinary 600 watts of power – enough to drive virtually any loudspeaker. And thanks to McIntosh’s unique Autoformer, this full 600 watts is delivered into 2, 4 or 8 ohm speakers.
It employs the McIntosh Quad Balanced design from input to output; this design cancels virtually all noise and distortion that may have snuck into the audio signal. As a result, the signal is still as clean as when it entered the amplifier – even when amplified to high levels.
MB100 Media Bridge
The MB100 Media Bridge connects you to all your favourite web based and stored digital music and allows it all – including uncompressed, lossless 24-bit/192kHz files – to be enjoyed in legendary McIntosh sound.
With all of its on-board storage and external connection capabilities, it can easily serve as the hub for all your digital media. A 1TB internal hard drive is included while four USB ports and one eSata port allows you to connect additional external hard drives or flash drives full of content. The high speed network port connects you to your preferred online streaming services.
The MB100 uses the same highly regarded 8 channel, 32-bit, 192kHz DAC with wide dynamic range and extremely low distortion as The McIntosh D100 digital preamp.
MA8000 Integrated Amplifier
A monumental performance. That’s what you can expect from the MA8000 Integrated Amplifier. It combines a powerful 300 watt per channel amplifier with a full functioned preamp into one space saving unit.
The MA8000′s 15 total inputs include 6 unbalanced, 2 balanced, 2 phono and 5 digital inputs – ensuring it has enough connections and modern technology to keep all your music sources connected and sounding great well into the future. The 5 dedicated digital inputs can decode your digital music up to 32 bits and 192kHz for high resolution audio playback. The discrete, analog eight band tone control is assignable by input and allows for precise, manual adjustment that lets your favourite songs sound better than ever.
