The McIntosh MHA200 is "a hell of a headphone amplifier" says Simon Lucas from Hi-Fi+ Magazine

A big thank you to Simon Lucas at Hi-Fi+ for reviewing the McIntosh MHA200 headphone amplifier.

Simon wrote:

"Midrange balance and detail retrieval is as impressive as you’ll hear from any alternative headphone amplifier at any price. And it all hangs together seamlessly – if your headphones are up to it, the MHA200 will impress, entertain and impress again indefinitely."

"In a very real way, that ability to impress is a function of McIntosh with many of its products, and the MHA200 is no exception. Yes, you can point the finger at the detailing of the finish or the feel of the remote, but those green-lit valves and the big gothic McIntosh logo will side-step such criticisms ably. There remains a pride of ownership surrounding McIntosh products – even ones without blue-glowing VU meters – and that counts for a lot."

"...you can enjoy as good a headphone experience as is currently available – from a product the density of which turns out to be in proportion to the opulence of its performance. In short, beauty is more than skin deep here."

"The MHA200 is a hell of a headphone amplifier."
