Product Information

MC303  300 Watt Three Channel Power Amplifier

Premium cosmetics featuring a ½” thick glass faceplate, custom machined and anodized aluminum handles, and a mirror polished stainless steel chassis are standard equipment on the MC303. Power Guard, a McIntosh circuit innovation, maximizes sound quality at high power levels while our Sentry Monitor feature provides continuous short circuit protection of the amplifier and connected loudspeakers. A triple bank of Peak Reading Watt Meters provides instant recognition of power output and may be switched off for theater use.

 

MC303 Highlights:

  • Three 300 Watt Channels
  • 60 Amps Output Current
  • Large Gold Plated Five-Way Binding Poss

 

MC303 Features:

  • EXCLUSIVE MCINTOSH POWER ASSURANCE SYSTEM: A collection of technologies that enhance performance and reliability while protecting the amplifier and loudspeakers.
  • POWER GUARD: A waveform comparison circuit continuously monitors both input and output signals. Power Guard dynamically adjusts the input level to avoid clipping while preventing harsh sounding distortion.
  • SENTRY MONITOR: Fuse-less short-circuit protection circuit disengages the output stage before current exceeds safe operating level – resets automatically.
  • OUTPUT AUTOFORMER: Unique McIntosh technology delivers the full rated amplifier output with the least possible distortion into loudspeaker impedances of 2, 4, or 8 Ohms; you get all the power you paid for and the freedom to choose any loudspeaker.
  • WATTMETER: Swift, accurate response reveals program peaks so staying within the power limits of your loudspeakers is easy.
