After years of promises, McIntosh has finally designed headphone amplifier, called the MHA100. This innovative amp brings out the best sound from any pair of headphones. The MHA100 uses proprietary McIntosh transformer technology to match the amp to the impedance of any headphone. It features a Headphone Crossfeed Director (HXD) which allow high quality recordings to image like conventional speakers in your headphones, bringing new depth and spatiality to your music. Four digital inputs allow the McIntosh Digital Engine to decode your digital music at up to 32 bits and 192kHz for maximum analog fidelity and enjoyment; two analog inputs are also available.
The main feature that sets the MHA100 apart is the inclusion of McIntosh’s patented Autoformer technology which offers users three headphone impedance ranges (8-40, 40-150 and 150-600 ohms) that allows you to enjoy a wide range of headphones from ear buds to studio quality phones.
50 watt stereo speaker outputs are included for when you want to enjoy your favorite speakers instead of your headphones; Power Guard will prevent clipping that could damage your headphones or speakers. Tone controls include a 5 Step Bass Boost Control for further customization. The entire unit is housed in a beautiful polished stainless steel chassis that not only compliments the classic glass front panel, knobs and brushed aluminum end caps, but also any room decor.
