ON Magazine presents the MA252 Integrated Amplifier with their Top Audio Award

French publication ON Magazine reviewed the MA252 Integrated Amplifier, a hybrid design with vacuum tube preamplifier section and solid state power amplifier output stage.

At the end of 2017, "McIntosh gratifies us with an almost unexpected gift" of the MA252, they write. Sharing a vintage chassis similar to the MC275 vacuum tube amplifier, it's "carved like a boat designed to surf all the waves of music."

Listening to it proved it to be "fast, powerful, precise... but without losing the sublime McIntosh charm." Presented with ON Magazine Top Audio Award.
