McIntosh MA8000

McIntosh has just released their all new flagship integrated amplifier – the MA8000.  The MA8000 provides 15 total inputs, including: 6 unbalanced, 2 balanced, 2 phono and 5 digital inputs.  The 5 digital inputs are equipped to handle up to 32 bits and 192kHz high resolution audio playback.  An analog eight band tone control allows for manual tuning and can be assigned to each input.

McIntosh embraces the growing vinyl following by providing a built-in phono stage – one moving magnet and one moving coild that can be adjusted to match a chosen cartridge.  A home-theatre pass through feature is provided for easy integration into a multi-channel theater system.

Power Guard is provided to prevent clipping that could damage your speakers, although the 300 watts / channel should be enough to drive virtually any speaker without challenge.  the MA8000 also includes a headphone amplifier for virtually all headphone types.
