McIntosh's new tri-chassis marvel: Ultimate Power

“A result of McIntosh’s 75 years as the leader of sound reproduction, the MC2.1KW is the pinnacle of audio amplification and a testament to the brand’s unwavering commitment to sonic perfection,” said McIntosh president Charlie Randall. “The perfect product to commemorate McIntosh’s 75th anniversary, the MC2.1KW is the embodiment of our passion, and it invites audio enthusiasts to embark on an extraordinary journey through sound with one of our most powerful amplifiers yet.”

McIntosh, which is celebrating its 75th Anniversary in 2024, today announces the launch of its new MC2.1KW Monoblock Power Amplifier, one of the brand’s most powerful amplifiers to date

The tri-chassis marvel possesses the ability to deliver an astonishing 2,000 Watts of pristine McIntosh power, offering a best-in-class user experience and setting a new industry standard for power and amplification.

The new MC2.1KW transforms the two-channel home audio reproduction experience, marking the brand’s 75th anniversary with pristine, powerful audio like never before. To commemorate this milestone, in each country McIntosh is distributed, the first 75 pairs of MC2.1KW sold in 2024 will include special anniversary badging with "75 Years" engraved in the handles and a special medallion with their 75th logo on top, establishing these models as true collector’s items for McIntosh enthusiasts.

Leveraging three separate modules

One Output Module that houses McIntosh's famed bi-filar wound Autoformer™, and two Power Modules that each contain a 1,000-Watt amplifier, the MC2.1KW’s artful engineering delivers unmatched sound quality. Thanks to the brand’s Autoformer™ and its unique ability to output full power at three separate impedances, the full 2,000 Watts of power can be delivered into a speaker no matter if its impedance is 2, 4 or 8 Ohms. It is ideally suited for audio systems that have power hungry loudspeakers, systems located in extremely large rooms, or for audio enthusiasts who demand the latest and best in state-of-the-art home audio amplification.

Only 75 pairs of the 75th Anniversary version will be available in the UK. Available to order now.

The MC2.1KW Monoblock Power Amplifier will be available through authorized McIntosh dealers beginning in January 2024 and retail for £59,995/each, £119,990/pair.
