Your Missouri Home Will Never Sound the Same After Introducing McIntosh Audio
Famed guitarist Les Paul said McIntosh Audio makes the finest amplifier in existence and used the amplifiers on his tours. Both quality and performance were important for Paul, and undoubtedly these factors are important for you when you assemble your Springfield, MO home’s audio system.
McIntosh Audio was founded in 1949 and offers components for two-channel stereo sound systems as well as multi-channel surround sound for home theaters. The classic, iconic blue watt meter is one of the traditional features of Mcintosh equipment. The McIntosh brand continues to be made in America and is loved by audiophiles with a passion for music and audio performance.

The Most Powerful Stereo Amplifier
The MC462 is a two-channel solid-state amplifier, offering 450 watts per channel. Each channel is connected to a dedicated McIntosh Autoformer, making the full 450 watts available to any 2, 4, or 8 Ohm impedance speaker. The MC462 is all the amp you need to power just about any set of stereo speakers.
There’s practically no distortion thanks to the 66% dynamic headroom increase from the previous model, resulting in available headroom of 3.0 dB. Because the filter capacity has been increased by almost 50%, the bass performance is also improved. All that powerful sound is still energy efficient, as McIntosh Audio incorporated an eco-friendly power management system that will turn off the amplifier after a designated time when no input signal is detected.
Take a look at the MC 462 in all of its beauty in the video below:
This patented technology designed by McIntosh Audio prevents speaker clipping. Clipping is a form of distortion heard when amplifiers are placed into overdrive and asked to perform beyond their maximum output capability. Photo-optic sensors react in one-thousandth of a second to regulate the speakers’ power level, which protects your speakers and the amplifier.
If you love listening to your favorite music on Pandora, TIDAL, or Spotify, then you know about the importance of digital music streaming. McIntosh Audio offers a few different varieties of components that allow you to do this as well as play music from your personal music library.
The RS100 wireless loudspeaker is an excellent introduction to wireless speaker systems.
