McIntosh MA252 Integrated Amp Review
Every now and then, we get a product that takes our breath away. This is one of them. The new McIntosh MA252 integrated amplifier combines a powerful solid state power amp with a vacuum tube pre-amp section — a very sought-after combination. We just love the retro nod to the MC275 Vacuum Tube Amp and modern upgrades. The MA252 is fully remote-controllable and includes tone controls, a headphone amplifier, and a smashingly-good phono section so you can enjoy your favorite tunes from a variety of sources. There’s no doubt in my mind this piece will be another collectible classic McIntosh tube model in the years to come.
Check out the video below for a complete tour of the McIntosh MA252. It’s currently only available in store, so stop by a World Wide Stereo showroom near you to check it out in person.
