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.
