McIntosh is honored to receive Stereo Sound 2017 Grand Prix Awards for both our MC1.25KW Amplifier and MA9000 Integrated Amplifier. Stereo Sound's Grand Prix Award has been recognized to be the most prestigious award for high-end audio products in Japan - and indeed the world.
Selection criteria includes not only excellent sound quality but also product originality, innovation, fit and finish, reliability and safety among others. All selections are based on Stereo Sound's founding principle that "Audio products are not sufficient by only sounding good, it must also be comprehensively superior."
These awards serve as a testament to McIntosh's longstanding engineering principles and adds to our list of previous Grand Prix Awards for the C1100 Preamplifier, MC601 and MC501 Amplifiers, and the MA7000 and MA2275 Integrated Amplifiers.
