McIntosh MX121 AV Control Centre + MC8207 Power Amplifier

Just a little over a week ago we wrote about the legendary 50th Anniversary MC275 power amplifier for McIntosh. If you are an audiophile and Mc fan that classic amp is a must have.

But what about those whose taste include not just high end music but home theatre as well. 

A Control Centre Worthy of its Name
To address that issue McIntosh will be displaying their MX121 AV control center and the matching 7 channel MC8207 power amplifier at the coming KL International AV Show 2012 at the J.W. Marriott Hotel from 20 – 22 July at their room in Starhill 7, Level 4.
3D compatible, the MX121 features up to six HDMI 1.4 inputs, 4 component video inputs, 5 composite video inputs, 2 HDMI and two component video outputs. There are also 3 optical and 2 coaxial SPDIF digital outputs.

Important feature includes Audyssey audio processing. Airplay wireless streaming through iTunes, dual zone operation, a USB input and a moving magnet phono input.

7-way Power Distribution
As a matching power amplifier the massive MC8207 power amplifier measures 44.45 x 24 x 53.3 cm and weighs a colossal 45kg.

According to McIntosh the MC8207 is capable of delivering an effortless 200 watts per channel into either 4 or 8 ohms all channels operating from 20 hz – 20 khz. It achieves all this power delivery at only 0.005% total harmonic distortion. Aesthetics of the MX 121/MC8207 is pure McIntosh, massive and solidly constructed with large LED type power meters (on the MC8207).
