Proof That Big Sound Comes in Small Packages

The McIntosh MA5300 Integrated Amplifier defies expectations, showcasing that substantial sound can indeed be delivered in a compact form. As the smallest solid-state integrated amplifier in both power output and physical size, it emerges as an ideal choice for smaller spaces or those embarking on their audio journey. Delivering 100 Watts per channel into 8 Ohm speakers or 160 Watts per channel into 4 Ohm speakers, this direct-coupled amplifier stands out with its prowess.

Acclaimed by Stereo+ with a 5-Star Award

Stereo+ awards the MA5300 5 out of 5 stars, acknowledging that while many integrated amplifiers exist in its price category, "nobody does it 'the McIntosh way.'" Praised for delivering power, control, and high resolution with intricate details, the MA5300 stands as a testament to McIntosh's commitment to excellence.

Versatile Connectivity for Audiophile Pleasure

The MA5300 offers a comprehensive set of 12 inputs, encompassing 6 analog inputs (4 unbalanced, 1 balanced, and 1 Moving Magnet input for turntables) and 6 digital inputs (2 coaxial, 2 optical, 1 USB, and 1 proprietary MCT for use with McIntosh's MCT series of SACD/CD Transports). The DA1 Digital Audio Module, housing an 8-channel, 32-bit DAC in Quad Balanced mode, supports up to DSD256 and DXD 384kHz for high-resolution audio playback. All inputs are customizable for user-friendly system control and configuration.

McIntosh Monogrammed Heatsinks and Advanced Control

Featuring McIntosh Monogrammed Heatsinks™ connected to advanced high-current output transistors, the MA5300 eliminates warm-up time, ensuring peak sonic capabilities from the start. Enhanced control microprocessors contribute to improved system operation, while bass and treble tone controls provide further refinement to personal preferences.

Roon Tested and Time-Tested Technologies

The MA5300 proudly bears the Roon Tested designation from Roon Labs, highlighting its compatibility and performance across various operating systems. Incorporating time-tested McIntosh technologies such as Power Guard®, Sentry Monitor™, Home Theater PassThru, High Drive headphone amplifier with Headphone Crossfeed Director (HXD®), and gold-plated speaker binding posts, the MA5300 assures a blend of modern innovation and enduring quality.

Aesthetic Excellence and Lasting Musical Enjoyment

With its classic McIntosh aesthetic featuring blue Watt meters, a black glass front panel with aluminum end caps, control knobs, and an illuminated logo, the MA5300 is a visual delight. HiFi Wigwam hails it as a "clean, open-sounding, ‘iron fist in a velvet glove’ amplifier" that injects "music and fun into recordings, regardless of their quality." A system built around the MA5300 promises an enduring and substantial musical enjoyment.
