New 12 x 50 watt digital MI1250 distribution amp brings cool-running power to AV systems everywhere.
The new 12-channel digital distribution amplifier brings McIntosh’s legendary sound quality to A/V systems and custom installations everywhere. Offering 50 watts of power into 8 ohms and 90 into 4, power is distributed via highly sophisticated closed-loop digital switching amplifiers that are paired with robust power supplies.
The MI1250 features installer-friendly, rack-mountable dimensions and, as a highly efficient Class D amplifier, does not require noisy cooling fans to maintain nominal operating temperature. On the front panel, multi-colour LED indicators display the status of each channel. On the back, unbalanced inputs are located with two-pole Phoenix-style push-in speaker terminals for each channel, along with volume controls plus four digital inputs: two optical and two coaxial.
The MI1250 also benefits from several proprietary McIntosh technologies including: Power Guard® signal-overload technology that prevents speaker overdrive; Sentry Monitor™ short-circuit protection circuit that disengages the output stage before current exceeds safe operating levels, automatically resetting; BUS input and outputs to easily distribute the stereo signal to multiple outputs and/or multiple amplifiers and 12-volt triggering.
An eco-friendly on/off signal-sensor powers the unit off if no input signal has been detected for a set amount of time and automatically turns the amp on when a signal is sensed.
The MI1250 includes numerous McIntosh design cues, including a black-glass front panel, housing an illuminated McIntosh logo, plus the familiar form factor complemented by silver trim.
