McIntosh MA8900 Integrated Amplifier Wins Diapason D'or 2017 Hi-Fi Award

McIntosh is honored to win the esteemed Diapason d'Or 2017 Hi-Fi Award for our MA8900 Integrated Amplifier. Diapason says with "a fluid sound" that's "without hardness," the MA8900 can "cope with the most difficult speakers." Unlike many solid state amplifiers, the MA8900 "creates no tiredness" of listening and does so "without sacrificing the speed or sharpness sometimes necessary" for certain types of music while at the same time it can do "justice to the volume of a symphonic orchestra" and exhibit "extreme refinement when the music requires it."

The MA8900 offers 200 Watts per channel and combines many new features with our legendary amplification prowess and preamplifier capabilities into one all-encompassing unit.

This is our 3rd d'Or Hi-Fi Award, with our RS100 Wireless Speaker and MA5200 Integrated Amplifier previously winning.
