McIntosh MA252 Integrated Amplifier

 

 

 

The Best of Vacuum Tube and Solid-State

The MA252 Integrated Amplifier is the first hybrid integrated amplifier from McIntosh. Taking retro design cues from the legendary McIntosh MC275 Vacuum Tube Amplifier, the MA252 combines the best of vacuum tube and solid state circuit design to create an amplifier that's both visually and sonically stunning.

 

The preamplifier stage uses two 12AX7a and two 12AT7 vacuum tubes housed inside stylish protective cages; the output stage is a direct coupled solid state amplifier that delivers 100 Watts per channel into 8 Ohm speakers or 160 Watts per channel into 4 Ohm speakers.

All Analogue Design

An all analogue design, it comes with 2 unbalanced, 1 balanced and 1 Moving Magnet phono input for turntables. All 4 inputs can be given user-friendly names in order to simplify user control. A full range subwoofer output is included for use with a powered subwoofer to further enhance low frequencies.

 

New Upgraded Heatsinks

The MA252 features McIntosh Monogrammed Heatsinks which are connected to advanced high current output transistors. These transistors eliminate the typical amplifier warm-up time so that the MA252 is in peak operating condition from the moment it's turned on.

 

A powerful control microprocessor is used for smooth system operation, along with some of the latest audio-grade circuit components that deliver the best possible sound.

 

Power Guard Technology

Thanks to its solid state output, the MA252 is McIntosh's first product containing vacuum tubes to include their patented Power Guard technology. Power Guard monitors the output signal for signs of overdriving and makes real time micro adjustments to the input signal to prevent harsh sounding clipping that could potentially damage your speakers.
