“The C47 and MC302 are very flexible and good at big movements, rich and unrestrained on expression of emotion. In both the voice and musical instruments, they are full of determination without even the slightest hesitation. This determination could make an appeal to the audiences fascinated by their superb performance.” - HiFi Review. Many noted McIntosh technologies are incorporated into the MC302. Power Guard® prevents over-driving of the amplifier and the resulting harsh sounding clipping that could damage your speakers. Sentry Monitor™ is our fuse-less short-circuit protection circuit that disengages the output stage before current exceeds safe operating levels and then resets automatically when operating conditions return to normal. McIntosh patented speaker binding posts ensure the best connection to all types of speaker wire terminations for worry free operation. The captivating blue watt meter is not only a great conversation starter but also provides a fast and accurate reading of the amplifier’s power output. Inputs for balanced and unbalanced cables are available to provide flexibility in connecting to the rest of your audio system. Visually, the MC302 shares the same timeless design cues as our other products. The polished stainless steel chassis, classic black glass front panel, knobs and brushed aluminum end caps all compliment any room or furniture style.
