BRAND: McIntosh

TYPE: Power Amplifier


  • The MI254 4-Channel Digital Amplifier is a versatile multi-channel amplifier ideal for use in distributed audio, home theater or 2-channel stereo playback.
  • Delivers 250 Watts into 8 Ohm speakers or 300 Watts into 4 Ohm speakers via highly sophisticated closed loop digital switching amplifiers that are paired with extremely robust power supplies to produce performance levels that are rarely achieved in distributed audio.
  • Installer-friendly physical dimensions and is 2U rack mountable via the included mounting ears (ears are removable for non-rack installations).
  • As a highly efficient Class D amplifier, it does not require noisy cooling fans to maintain nominal operating temperature.
  • Two McIntosh Watt Meters display the summed power output of channels 1 + 2 and channels 3 + 4. Multi-color LED indicators display the status of each channel. Features a balanced and unbalanced input for each channel along with our standard 5-way speaker binding posts.
  • Other features included: Loudspeaker Guard signal overload technology that prevents overdriving the speakers; Sentry Monitor™ short-circuit protection that disengages the output stage before current exceeds safe operating levels; BUS input & outputs to easily distribute a stereo signal to multiple outputs and/or multiple amplifiers; individual channel inputs; 12 Volt triggering capabilities; and eco-friendly on/off signal sensing.
