BRAND: McIntosh

SERIES: MC601 Power Amplifier

TYPE: Power Amplifier

The McIntosh MCD1100 SACD/CD Player, C50 Preamplifier, MT10 Turntable and the XR200 Loudspeakers are logical companions for the MC601 Monoblock Power Amplifier. Your Authorized Dealer can provide additional information on other McIntosh product combinations.


The MC601 is designed with the latest advances in component parts and materials. n New McIntosh faceplate design featuring larger easier to read power wattmeter framed with attractive aluminum side handles. n Newly designed speaker wire binding posts allow the best connection to all types of speaker wire terminations. n Quad Balanced circuit design yields the highest power with the least distortion. n The latest advances in transistors are used so the temperature is ‘just right’ when played soft or loud, maintaining a cool operating temperature. n Mono block amplification is the ultimate system application as each speaker has its own amp guaranteeing maximum channel separation and fidelity. n Stereo systems using two and multiple MC601s may be applied in a multi-channel audio system or when bi-amplification of a speaker is desired.
