Over the years, McIntosh has built a reputation around its design-focused approach to premium hi-fi audio equipment. After releasing a menacing 650-watt wireless speaker earlier this year, the company has returned with a new MA352 Integrated Amplifier that employs a hybridized design, featuring “the finest of vacuum tube and solid-state audio design principles.”
As is expected, the latest piece of audio equipment from the company integrates high-quality mechanics alongside an eye-catching design. Featuring an all-analog design, the latest amplifier is powered by a pair of 12AX7A and a pair of 12AT7 vacuum tubes. The equipment’s output stage features a direct coupled solid-state amplifier that further outputs 200 watts per channel into 8 Ohm speakers, or 320 watts per channel into 4 Ohm speakers. The piece, like all products from the company, has been handcrafted at the brand’s Binghamton, New York factory using both made-in-USA and imported components.
You can take a look at McIntosh’s MA352 Integrated Amplifier in the gallery above. It is currently available via authorized McIntosh dealers, with a suggested retail price of $6,500 USD.
