The MHA100 headphone amplifier from McIntosh is their first dedicated headphone amp and employs XL_MHA100_Front_Top_Phonesa new adaptation of the company’s unique Autoformer technology to produce three headphone impedance ranges of 8-40, 40-150 and 150-600 ohms so that every headphone can be accommodated.
The new headphone amplifier features McIntoshes new Headphone Crossfeed Director (HXD) which they say allows high quality recordings to image like conventional speakers in your headphones.

There are four digital inputs (including USB) and the McIntosh Digital Engine will decode digital files at up to 32 bits and 192kHz – there are also two analogue inputs.
The MHA100 is more compact than other McIntosh but it still maintains the company’s instantly recognisable styling and there’s also a 50 watt stereo output so you can add a pair of speakers should you wish plus tone controls.
