Continuing the McIntosh tradition of innovation and exceptional performance, the MC402 is rated to deliver a hefty 400 watts per channel in stereo or 800 watts in mono. Its extraordinary, distortion-canceling, quad-differential design consists of four complete amplifier circuits, whose outputs are combined in the unique McIntosh-crafted autoformers. This delivers absolute transparency and musical accuracy into loads of 2, 4, or 8-Ohms.
The new three-dimensional glass faceplate design of the MC402 adds elegance, while the illuminated peak-responding meters show the true output, regardless of load. And its power guard indicators, remote power control and fiber-optic light diffuser illumination round out an impressive feature list. It’s easy to see why this 2-channel power amplifier was given The Absolute Sound Editor's Choice Award 2005.
EXCLUSIVE MCINTOSH POWER ASSURANCE SYSTEM
A collection of technologies that enhance performance and reliability while protecting the amplifier and loudspeakers.
A waveform comparison circuit continuously monitors both input and output signals. Power Guard dynamically adjusts the input level to avoid clipping while preventing harsh sounding distortion.
Fuse-less short-circuit protection circuit disengages the output stage before current exceeds safe operating level – resets automatically.
Unique McIntosh technology delivers the full rated amplifier output with the least possible distortion into loudspeaker impedances of 2, 4, or 8 Ohms; you get all the power you paid for and the freedom to choose any loudspeaker.
Swift, accurate response reveals program peaks so staying within the power limits of your loudspeakers is easy.
