Continuing to build on its long-standing reputation surrounding a design-focused approach to premium hi-fi audio equipment, New York-based McIntosh has unveiled its latest piece of eye-catching hardware. Called the MC901 Dual Mono Amplifier, the one-of-a-kind home audio amplifier from the brand is a monoblock amplifier that combines two amplifiers into one — a 300-watt vacuum tube amplifier attached to a 600-watt solid-state amplifier, all unified on one chassis.

The initial 300-watt vacuum tube amp is dedicated to powering the speaker’s mid and upper drivers via eight KT88 output tubes, with an additional four 12AT7 and two 12AX7A signal tubes. The power-hungry 600-watt solid-state amp is dedicated to powering woofers. Like all McIntosh amps, the MC901 features the iconic “McIntosh Blue” wattmeter, with more contrasting hints of the brand’s characteristic green scattered throughout. More design cues that give off the brand’s iconic look are the vintage die-cast aluminum name badges, a series of diagrams printed on the glass on the top, various McIntosh knobs on the front of the stainless-steel chassis, and more.

As is normative for McIntosh products, the MC901 Dual Mono Amplifier is handcrafted at the brand’s Binghamton, New York factory. Authorized McIntosh dealers will begin shipping the product this month, with a retail price set at $17,500 USD.
