McIntosh has announced the MC451 Dual Mono Power Amplifier, a unique combination of a vacuum tube and solid-state amplifier that uses McIntosh’s Hybrid Drive technology.
The MC451 follows the success of McIntosh’s MC901 model. A more compact product, the MC451 is strategically built so that it is easier to place within an audio system, offering 150 watts of power from the vacuum tube section and 300 watts from the solid-state section. The MC451 features a variety of McIntosh patented technologies, including Power Guard and Power Guard SGS, Sentry Monitor, Autoformer, Unity Coupled Circuit, Solid Cinch speaker binding posts, Monogrammed Heatsinks, and a DualView Power Output Meter.
The MC451 is the latest model to incorporate McIntosh’s Hybrid Drive technology. The brand’s team of engineering experts took their extensive experience to seamlessly combine both vacuum tube and solid state to develop the company’s Hybrid Drive design that works to redefine sound performance.
