McIntosh, who were founded in the USA in 1949, have announced the MC1.25KW Quad Balanced Power Amplifier. McIntosh told us: “The MC1.25KW is our newest and one of our most advanced amplifiers. Redesigned from top to bottom, it replaces the venerable MC1.2KW as our most powerful single chassis monoblock amplifier. A simple glance at the 158 pound (71.7 kg) MC1.25KW is enough to convey its power and performance capabilities, but when you hear it – then you’ll truly understand what it can do”. More »
