The MA7200 is a wonderful single box amplifier
When McIntosh say they make a 200 Watts amplifier, they do, irrespective of speaker impedance the MA7200 delivers 200 Watts no questions asked.
But what does this mean? What it shows is McIntosh's ability to monitor and measure exactly how the amplifier is working to power the speakers.
Think of it like traction control on a car, when the components know what they are able to do together the power is delivered much more effectively.
This ultimately ensures that you get the best possible listen irrespective of the volume you are using.
The performance is more lifelike, the instruments are more accurate all in all it just makes it all sound RIGHT. It gives to you a great reward when listening
and an itch of what shall I listen too next !
Delivering a staggering 200 Watts per channel into either 2, 4 or 8 ohms.
It represents years of know-how from McIntosh to combine elements from their Preamplifier and Power amplifier
to create a genuinely amazing integrated amplifier that is capable of driving almost any loudspeaker.
Connectivity is the buzzword with this amplifier too, sporting a huge array of connections :
8 Analogue inputs (1 XLR Balanced, 5 RCA unbalanced, Moving Magnet & Moving Coil turntable connections)
6 Digital inputs (2 Coaxial, 2 Optical, 1 USB and 1 MCT (for use with McIntosh CD/SACD transports)
McIntosh are aware just how fast the Digital market can change this is why the included DA1 DAC module is a removable
component, this allow in the future for any upgrade that might come available ensuring that your amplifier continues to be
at the cutting edge of digital connectivity and decoding!
The board DA1 is the same 8 Channel DAC that is found in the topline CD player the MCD600.
Working in Quad mode means each channel has 4 DAC modules decoding the audio to ensure the very best possible performance.
