  • Product Description

    The MC205 delivers all the explosive dynamics that high-performance home theater systems require by delivering 200 watts of power to each of the 5 individual channels commonly used in many home theaters. Our exclusive Dynamic Power Manager® (DPM) technology enables it to deliver full power into 4 and 8 ohm speakers - making the MC205 a perfect choice for a wide variety of home theater speakers. It can also be used as a two zone amplifier with three channels operating one zone and the remaining two channels assigned to a second zone.

    The MC205 does not require cooling fans so even the most subtle soundtracks are not masked by fan noise. It features many notable technologies found in our other amplifiers, including Power Guard® which prevents over-driving of the amplifier and harsh sounding clipping that could damage your speakers. Sentry Monitor™ is a fuse-less short-circuit protection circuit that disengages the output stage before current exceeds safe operating levels and resets automatically when operating conditions return to normal. Inputs for balanced and unbalanced cables are available to provide flexibility in connecting the MC205 to your system or home theater processor. A bank of three blue watt meters provides instant recognition of power output of the front channels (the meters may be switched off if they conflict with the television or movie screen).

    The classic black glass front panel and custom machined end caps allow the MC205 to blend in with any surrounding. Contact your local dealer​ to learn more.
