1-Channel Solid State Amplifier
The MC1.25KW Quad Balanced Power Amplifier is one of our most advanced amplifiers. Redesigned from top to bottom, it replaces the venerable MC1.2KW as our most powerful single chassis mono-block amplifier. A simple glance at this 158 pound (71.7 kg) amp is enough to convey its power and performance capabilities, but when you hear it – then you’ll truly understand what it can do.
It outputs 1,200w of pure power into a single channel with a nearly imperceptible total harmonic distortion of 0.005%. This astonishing amount of power is fully available to 2, 4 or 8 Ohm speakers via our Autoformer™ technology. A pair of these amps can anchor a home audio system that can rival nearly any stereo system in the world.
Updates & enhancements abound in the MC1.25KW. The 50% increase in filter capacity improves the performance of low end frequencies, as well as increasing dynamic headroom. The top of the amp showcases an updated yet unmistakable McIntosh industrial design that will fit right in with current McIntosh products or those made decades ago. The audio Autoformer & power transformer remain located just behind the front panel, but are now contained in new glass topped enclosures. In between them is the new circular glass work, housing the amplifier’s name badge that is adorned with a decorative trim ring.
