headphone amplifier
The new MHA100 is the first dedicated headphone
amplifier from McIntosh and employs a new
adaptation of our Autoformer technology to produce
three headphone impedance ranges of 8-40, 40-150
and 150-600 ohms so every headphone will produce
the best possible personal listening experience.
Features our new Headphone Crossfeed Director
(HXD) to allow high quality recordings to image like
conventional speakers in your headphones.
Four digital inputs allow the McIntosh Digital Engine
to decode your digital music at up to 32 bits and
192kHz for maximum analog fidelity and enjoyment.
Smaller, more compact size than other McIntosh
amplifiers allows additional flexibility in locating the
MHA100 in your space.
Includes 50 watt speaker output for when you
want to enjoy your favorite speakers instead of your
headphones, along with 5 Step Bass Boost Control
for further customization.
Headphones not included.
