McIn­tosh has re­leased what is now the com­pany’s most pow­er­ful stereo power am­pli­fier, the MC462, which is rated at 450-watts per chan­nel. The McIn­tosh MC462 re­places the MC452 but, like that am­pli­fier, uses an aut­o­former so the out­put power re­mains the same ir­re­spec­tive of whether you’re driv­ing 2Ω, 4Ω or 8Ω speak­ers. The ca­pac­i­tance of the power sup­ply in the MC462 has been in­creased by nearly 50 per cent, ac­cord­ing to McIn­tosh, which it claims has re­sulted in an in­crease in dy­namic head­room from 1.8dB to 3.0dB. ‘ This in­crease al­lows the MC462 to eas­ily han­dle dras­tic swings in dy­nam­ics and ef­fort­lessly re­pro­duce mu­sic with vir­tu­ally no dis­tor­tion,’ says Philip Sawyer, of Syn­ergy Au­dio Vis­ual, which dis­trib­utes McIn­tosh in Aus­tralia. ‘ Bass per­for­mance is also im­proved as a re­sult of the in­crease in fil­ter ca­pac­ity.’ As with many re­cent new mod­els from McIn­tosh, the MC462 now has di­rect LED back­light­ing and glass in­serts so it’s pos­si­ble to see the two au­dio aut­o­form­ers and the power trans­former in­side.
