The MX122 A/V Processor supports many of the latest breakthroughs in surround sound and object-based 3D audio like Dolby® Atmos, DTS:X™ and Auro-3D®. It is also fully compatible with modern 4K Ultra HD video sources and can upscale lower resolutions to 4K Ultra HD for the best possible picture quality. When paired with the Son et Image Magazine reviewed this pair of home theater products whose design and appearance are in the "purest McIntosh tradition."

After spending many hours listening to this ensemble with all the sources at his disposal, reviewer Eddie Dufour states he's "never appreciated the sound quality of my Klipsch THX speakers as much as I did with the McIntosh duo in place. In fact, I was very dispirited to have to return these components... Listening to DVD or Blu-ray movies proved to be a very impressive experience, with an excellent level of sound resolution, a wide and deep sound stage when required (panoramic scenes or intergalactic space scenes) and an intimate stage when the action takes place in more confined spaces."

"The unbeatable quality of construction, the timeless look, the very high level of performance and a network of dealers who know their products very well make this brand a reference and a must for anyone looking for a quality product that will never go out of style. If you’re looking for a high-quality amplifier/preamp/processor at all levels that’s versatile and compatible with the latest audio-video technology, I can enthusiastically recommend this McIntosh duo."
