Are you interested in upgrading your amplifier? We strongly recommend you look into the MC830 amplifier from McIntosh Labs.
Here’s a quick overview of what you should know about this piece of equipment when choosing a McIntosh amplifier in Chicago.
What to know about the MC830
The MC830 is a single-channel solid state amplifier that includes an open chassis industrial design, very similar to some of the other favorite amplifiers and devices made by McIntosh. When using the MC830 in pairs combined with a preamplifier, source components (such as a CD player, turntable or streaming music player) and a pair of speakers, you can get an outstanding experience from your home audio system.
The device features a similar footprint and dimensions to the MA252 Integrated Amplifier offered by the brand. It has a direct coupled output design rated at 300 watts at 8 Ohms or 480 Watts at 4 Ohms. Meanwhile, its Dual Scale Watt meter responds quickly to deliver a highly accurate reading of power output for both speaker impedances, while the heatsinks keep the equipment running cool for the best possible performance (while also delivering some visual appeal).
The MC830 features Power Guard® technology to monitor the output signal coming from the amplifier at all times, protecting your speakers against potential overdrive. If it becomes necessary, the technology will also create real-time adjustments even at a micro level to prevent clipping that would otherwise cause some potentially significant damage to your speaker systems.
Meanwhile, the Sentry Monitor™ system offers additional protection. It is a fuse-less short circuit protection feature that disengages the equipment’s output stage before the current surpasses safe operating conditions, then automatically resets upon the return of those conditions to normal.
The equipment’s Solid Cinch™ speaker binding posts make it easy for you to secure your speaker cables, preventing them from getting loose and creating a short. These posts are gold-plated, which prevents corrosion from occurring while also improving the quality of the audio signal that gets sent out to your speakers. Power Control ports on the device make it easy for you to power up and shutdown, as they send power on and off signals to other McIntosh components you have are connected to the device. You can even use an Auto Off feature to turn the device off after 30 minutes if it does not receive an audio signal.
These are just a few of the most notable features that come with the McIntosh MC830. As always with McIntosh, you can expect high-quality audio, fantastic ease of use and an attractively designed product that will fit in perfectly with your home audio collection.
