The most powerful single chassis McIntosh monoblock amplifier, the MC1.2KW produces an impressive 1,200 watts. Thanks to our exclusive Autoformer technology, this remarkable amount of power is fully available to 2, 4 or 8 ohm speakers. The MC1.2KW utilizes our Quad Balanced design that cancels virtually all noise and distortion that may have crept into the audio signal. As a result, even when amplified to high levels the signal is still as clean as when it left the preamplifier. Other McIntosh technologies are included with the MC1.2KW as well. Power Guard® will prevent harsh sounding clipping that could damage your speakers. Our fuse-less short-circuit protection circuit Sentry Monitor™ disengages the output stage before current exceeds safe operating levels and then resets automatically when operating conditions return to normal. Inputs for both balanced and unbalanced cables are available to provide flexibility in connecting to the rest of your audio system. The large blue watt meter is not only fascinating to look at but also provides a fast and accurate reading of the amplified signal. A beautiful polished stainless steel chassis houses the classic glass front panel, knobs and brushed aluminum handles and seamlessly blends with any decor. The MC1.2KW is perfect in both 2-channel music systems as well as in home theater systems. Contact your local dealer to learn more.
McIntosh’s MC1.2kW amplifier combines staggering power with finesse and musicality.
Quad Balancing, a feature unique to McIntosh, brings noise and distortion levels down to the point of virtual non-existence. Now you can enjoy the full dynamic color of your most demanding music, painted on a background of silence.
A giant hand-built Watt meter, glowing behind the 1/2-inch glass panel, provides more than the iconic McIntosh aesthetic. It allows you to accurately monitor the output power of the amplifier and stay within your speaker’s power limits.
McIntosh’s patented Power Guard circuit stands guard to prevent speaker-damaging amplifier “clipping” during unexpectedly high musical peaks.
With the MC1.2kW, you always get all the power you paid for. The exclusive Output Autoformer allows the amplifier to deliver 1200 Watts of power into any speaker, regardless of whether it is 2, 4, or 8-Ohm impedance.
In true McIntosh fashion, the MC1.2kW will provide highperformance, trouble-free musical enjoyment that can be passed down to the next generation.
