MC452

MC452 ($7,500)
McIntosh does hi-fi well—really well—but it does amplifiers beyond compare, and the MC452 is the newest testament to that fact. It uses McIntosh Autoformer technology to deliver its full power output, 450 watts per channel, to any speaker type or impedance while ensuring the least possible distortion during playback. The iconic blue McIntosh power meters on the faceplate give users the ability to visibly match the amp’s decibel output to the speaker’s sensitivity rating—to guarantee that all power is handled and distributed properly.
