McIntosh will announce the launch of three new products at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show – MB100 media bridge, MHA100 headphone amplifier and MXA70 integrated audio system. No photographs are available as yet.
MB100 media bridge
The MB100 media bridge allows streaming from Pandora© to SiriusXM© to Spotify© and more. The MB100 also allows guests to stream music directly from their wireless devices and features cloud access for backup and synchronization across multiple systems. The TuneBridge™ icon will find the original album from just one track and Spotify can serve up the entire album in seconds. It has a solid state 64GB drive housing the OS with an additional 1TB hard drive for file storage. Controlled via an iOS/Android app, web browser, TV UI and/or front-panel display, the MB100 looks like a great digital hub.
MHA100 headphone amplifier
The new MHA100 is McIntosh’s first dedicated headphone amplifier which features four digital inputs, while the headphone section uses McIntosh-designed and hand-wound impedance matching Autoformers. The MHA100 is more compact than previous McIntosh amps, making it more desktop-friendly and it also features a 50-watt stereo speaker output.

Featuring a compact yet fully functional 50-watt stereo amplifier and a pair of two-way desktop speakers, the MXA70 is an all in one system. The speakers feature drivers housed cast aluminium cabinets and there are connections for a powered subwoofer available. The MXA70 also includes the same dedicated headphone amplifier found in the new MHA100.
