The LCR80 speaker projects an extremely wide sound-stage for a greater listening experience from a variety of seating positions, delivering an amazingly full-sounding performance for a speaker of such compact dimensions.

With its flexible design, it can be placed in horizontal, vertical or shelf mounted orientations. Complete mounting hardware is supplied for all positions. The machined alloy, high-frequency array is rotatable to optimize the sound for either vertical or horizontal placement without sonic compromise. McIntosh patented Low Distortion/High Performance (LD/HP®) woofers are combined with two midranges and a dedicated tweeter to deliver lifelike sound. Voiced to match the XR50 and XR100 speakers, the LCR80 may be used for the left, center or right channels in home theater systems or in special stereo applications.

Patented McIntosh speaker binding posts allow for a simple yet secure connection to your speaker cables, helping to ensure the best possible audio performance. Fine gloss wood finishes are offered in Black, Pear Maple and Red Walnut. Amplifiers​ from 75 to 300 watts are appropriate power for LCR80. Contact your local dealer to learn more.
