The new McIntosh MC2301 monoblock tube amplifier hails the fusion of McIntosh Unity Coupled and Quad-Differential circuit topologies. From the inception of McIntosh Labs, Unity Coupling stands as one of the premiere tube topologies ever conceived, making possible revolutionary power bandwidth and low distortion. Quad-Differential circuitry, a recent McIntosh innovation, cancels nearly all inherent noise and circuit-born nonlinearities resulting in the lowest noise levels ever achieved in a tube amplifier. With 300 Watts available at 8, 4 or 2 ohms, the MC2301 provides power enough to drive even the most demanding loudspeakers. From the demands of massed chorale to full-on rock and roll, the MC2301 is capable of delivering the most extraordinarily lifelike and dynamic performance ever heard from a McIntosh tube amplifier.

The MC2301 design is fully balanced from input to speaker output and is the first ever McIntosh tube amplifier to include Quad-Differential circuitry. A blend of tube and solid state devices comprise a super-linear input stage and the output stage, based upon eight KT88 power tubes, terminates in a custom multifilar wound output transformer providing very low distortion and wide power bandwidth. And the result is a staggering 117dB signal to noise ratio combined with vanishingly low distortion to provide remarkable low-level linearity and unmatched liquidity.

The attractive blue meter is flanked by two rows of output vacuum tubes that bring amazing visual appeal to the front panel to go along with the knobs and brushed aluminum handles that all effortlessly blend with the polished stainless steel chassis. The MC2301 is very well suited for stereo music systems.
