The MC302 stereo amplifier is designed to deliver decades of legendary musical enjoyment thanks to its outstanding build quality and advanced technical performance. It produces 300 watts of amplification per channel, and as a result of our unique Autoformer, all this power can be delivered into 2, 4 or 8 ohm speakers. The MC302 is the perfect choice for a music lover’s dedicated stereo system. Or combine it with other McIntosh amplifiers for use in multi-channel home theater systems to drive either main or surround channels.
The captivating blue watt meters are not only a great conversation starter but also provide 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.
“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. Our patented Solid Cinch™ speaker binding posts easily but securely attach the speaker cables to prevent them from coming loose and possibly causing a short; the binding posts are also gold-plated to prevent corrosion and ensure a quality signal is sent over your speaker cables to your speakers.
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. Contact your local dealer to learn more.
