The MHA100 features four digital inputs to allow playback of files in a wide variety of formats, while the headphone section uses McIntosh-designed and hand-wound impedance matching Autoformers to deliver full McIntosh power into any set of headphones. As a testament to the system’s flexibility and McIntosh ingenuity, the MHA100 is more compact than previous McIntosh amps, making it more desktop friendly and a perfect addition to any headphone enthusiast’s existing system. It also features a 50-watt stereo speaker output for when you want to enjoy your desktop speakers.

The speakers, finished in a luxurious, high gloss piano black, feature select driver elements housed in custom cast aluminum cabinetry and achieve an unusually rich and full sized level of performance for their size. For an even larger sound, connections for a powered subwoofer are available.
