McIntosh has introduced the MXA80 Integrated Audio System. Amplifier, preamplifier and speakers all in one.

The MXA80 Integrated Audio System is the next generation of the MXA70. It maintains the same compact footprint and functionality while adding support for DSD and DXD digital music files thanks to a new digital-to-analogue converter (DAC).

The MXA80 features a 50 watt stereo amplifier and a pair of specially designed 2-way desktop speakers. A total of six inputs, 4 digital and 2 analogue, allows for connecting a variety of music sources. The USB input accepts PCM signals up to 32-bit/384kHz and supports DSD64, DSD128 and DSD256 along with DXD 352.8kHz and DXD 384kHz. Our exclusive MCT input offers a secure DSD connection to enjoy the high definition audio on SACDs when paired with the MCT450 SACD/CD Transport. A dedicated headphone amplifier is available for those times when the user wants to listen to their music more intimately. It takes advantage of several McIntosh technologies. Headphone Crossfeed Director (HXD®) brings added dimension to the music while Power Guard® prevents clipping that could damage the speakers or headphones. A 5 step Bass Boost Control allows for further tonal customisation.

The MXA80’s compact size makes it a system for an office, bedroom or vacation house. Combine it with the similarly-sized MB50 Streaming Audio Player and MP100 Phono Preamplifier to form the basis of a complete audio system. The amplifier is housed in a polished stainless steel chassis that compliments the classic glass front panel, knobs and brushed aluminium end caps; the speakers come with a high gloss piano black finish.

Pricing and Availability

McIntosh are now accepting orders for the MXA80 with shipping expected to begin in April. Suggested retail price (VAT, shipping and any customs duties related to current standards of individual countries are excluded): $6,000 USD
