The McIntosh MC301 monoblock amplifier delivers 300 watts of power into a single channel at 2, 4 or 8 ohms. Both balanced and unbalanced inputs are included for connecting your preamp, along with balanced and unbalanced outputs for ease of connecting bi-amp configurations. Its monoblock design is the ultimate in system configuration as each speaker has its own dedicated amp, guaranteeing maximum channel separation and audio fidelity.
“This is so definitely McIntosh, with goose bumps guaranteed!” – Stereo+
“Smooth? You bet. Realistic timbre? Check. Instruments and voices sound staggeringly realistic with no edge or glare whatsoever? Got it.” – Tone Audio
While it is physically smaller than our other amplifiers thanks to its space saving 6” tall chassis, it’s still full of all the technology McIntosh is known for and will perform to the same high standards as any of our amps. The McIntosh output Autoformer ensures every speaker receives full power regardless of its impedance. With our Quad Balanced design, any noise is cancelled inside the Autoformer, yielding the highest power with the least amount of distortion. Our unique Power Guard® circuitry prevents harsh sounding clipping that could damage your speakers. Your speaker cables will be securely connected to the amp with our patented speaker binding posts.
Has “plenty of grip available but little or no sense of the edginess that can often accompany serious power… If you’re looking to indulge in your music instead of the sound it makes, then the C52 and MC301 are ‘strongly recommended.'” – Hi-Fi+
The MC301 is completed by the classic McIntosh black glass front panel, silver end caps and a large, easy to read blue watt meter that is globally recognized as a symbol of quality audio.
