Offering 50 watts of power into 8 ohms and 90 into 4, power is distributed via closed-loop digital switching amplifiers that are paired with robust power supplies.

The MI1250 features installer-friendly, rack-mountable dimensions and, as a highly efficient Class D amplifier, does not require noisy cooling fans to maintain nominal operating temperature. On the front panel, multi-colour LED indicators display the status of each channel. On the back, unbalanced inputs are located with two-pole Phoenix-style push-in speaker terminals for each channel, along with volume controls plus four digital inputs: two optical and two coaxial.


The MI1250 also benefits from several proprietary McIntosh technologies including: Power Guard® signal-overload technology that prevents speaker overdrive; Sentry Monitor™ short-circuit protection circuit that disengages the output stage before current exceeds safe operating levels, automatically resetting; BUS input and outputs to easily distribute the stereo signal to multiple outputs and/or multiple amplifiers and 12-volt triggering. An eco-friendly on/off signal-sensor powers the unit off if no input signal has been detected for a set amount of time and automatically turns the amp on when a signal is sensed.

The MI1250 will start shipping from November 2021 in the UK through distributor Fine Sounds UK’s dealer network priced £4,995. In the USA it will be available Oct/early November and will be $4,000.
