McIntosh MC301 Details

McIntosh MC301 Power Amplifier: Compact yet powerful McIntosh amplification

  • 1-Channel Amplifier
  • 300 Watt Quad Balanced Monoblock
  • Space saving 6" tall chassis
  • Perfect for smaller systems where higher power output levels are not needed
  • Each speaker has its own dedicated amp, which guarantees maximum channel separation and audio fidelity
  • McIntosh output Autoformers ensure every speaker receives full power regardless of its impedance
  • Power Guard® to prevent clipping that could damage your speakers

The MC301 monoblock amplifier delivers 300 watts of power into a single channel at 2, 4 or 8 ohms. Both balanced and unbalanced inputs are included for connecting your preamp, along with balanced and unbalanced outputs for ease of connecting bi-amp configurations. The monoblock design of McIntosh MC301 is the ultimate in system configuration as each speaker has its own dedicated amp which guarantees maximum channel separation and audio fidelity.

“This is so definitely McIntosh, with goose bumps guaranteed!” - Stereo+

The MC301 is physically smaller than our other amplifiers thanks to its space saving 6" tall chassis, but it’s still full of all the technology McIntosh is known for and will perform to the same high standards as any of our amps. The McIntosh output Autoformer ensures every speaker receives full power regardless of its impedance. With the Quad Balanced design, any noise is cancelled inside the Autoformer, yielding the highest power with the least amount of distortion. The unique Power Guard® circuitry from McIntosh prevents harsh sounding clipping that could damage your speakers. Your speaker cables will be securely connected to the amp with patented speaker binding posts.

“Has plenty of grip available but little or no sense of the edginess that can often accompany serious power... If you’re looking to indulge in your music instead of the sound it makes, then the C52 and MC301 are ‘strongly recommended.’” - Hi-Fi+

The MC301 is completed by the classic McIntosh black glass front panel, silver end caps and a large, easy to read blue watt meter that is globally recognized as a symbol of quality audio. You will certainly impress your friends and family with the legendary performance only McIntosh can deliver by adding the MC301 to your audio system.

Exclusive McIntosh Power Assurance System
