— Time-Honored McIntosh® Craftsmanship, Incomparable Aesthetics and Audio Superiority Now Available in Compact Integrated System —
BINGHAMTON, NY, August 18, 2009 — McIntosh Laboratory, a global leader in home entertainment that has defined the highest quality in sound reproduction for 60 years, today announced the introduction of its 60th Anniversary MXA60 Executive System, the company’s first-ever standalone integrated audio system. Designed by the same team of renowned McIntosh engineers who created the company’s high performance Reference System, this ultimate-quality tabletop system features a high-performance 75-watt-per-channel amplifier, state-of-the-art CD/SACD/MP3 player, vacuum tube preamplifier, as well as an AM/FM/RBDS Tuner and high performance, two-way bass reflex loudspeaker system that packs all the legendary McIntosh sound into a smaller package. It is scheduled for availability in October 2009 for a suggested retail price of $7,500.
McIntosh President Charlie Randall noted: “Our concept in creating the 60th anniversary MXA60 Executive System was to bring together 100% McIntosh performance in a single convenient and compact package, giving audio enthusiasts the opportunity to enjoy renowned McIntosh performance in a system that’s ready to play right out of the box. The result is a unique McIntosh audio system with an amazingly big sound that defies its small size.”
Unmistakably McIntosh – Superior Craftsmanship, Audiophile Quality Sound
With its solid all-metal casework, anodized aluminum accents, backlit glass faceplates with Peak Reading Wattmeters and heirloom quality construction, everything about the new MXA60 is unmistakably McIntosh – reflecting the company’s 60 years as a leader in world-class luxury audio.
In addition to all the familiar and renowned McIntosh design themes, the MXA60 features the superior music reproduction technologies that have cemented the company’s singular reputation among audiophiles. The powerful 75-watt transistor-based amplifier features Sentry Monitor fuse-less short-circuit protection and Power Guard anti-clipping circuitry to ensure distortion-free performance and reliability. The preamp’s advanced hybrid transistor/tube design utilizes a dual triode tube design for the purest music reproduction capabilities.
Weighing less than eight pounds, the MXA60’s dual low-distortion loudspeakers create a rich soundscape perfect for enjoying ultimate quality audio performance in any sized room. The MXA60’s two-way loudspeakers were fashioned in the tradition of the revered mini-monitors of old, providing an astounding level of high-quality audio from a surprisingly compact package. To achieve their high level of performance, the speakers feature custom designed mid-woofers with a four-inch diameter – providing a magnet structure that is proportionally much larger than is typically used in speakers of comparable size.
