Overview

The MC2KW monoblock amplifier is designed to exceed the demands of true lifelike playback levels, capable of delivering 2,000 watts of continuous power and 8,000 watts of peak power into 2, 4 or 8 ohm speakers. But sheer power output is just the beginning of the story.

The MC2KW’s unique design incorporates three modules. Two 1,000 watt power modules each contain half the circuitry and a power supply. The output module houses the input and output connections, meter, and output transformer; it also functions as the control center. The MC2KW features McIntosh’s Quad Balanced circuitry design which, in the process of creating such extraordinary power, cancels virtually all noise and distortion that may have been introduced into the audio signal. This leaves a clean signal that even when amplified to high levels is still as pure as when it entered the amplifier from the preamplifier.

Other McIntosh technologies are included in the MC2KW. The world famous McIntosh Autoformer™ guarantees your speakers will always receive full power regardless of their impedance, while Power Guard® will prevent clipping that could damage them. Three sets of speaker connections are included to allow for tri-wiring your speakers if they are so designed. Sentry Monitor™ is a fuse-less short-circuit protection circuit that disengages the output stage before current exceeds safe operating levels and then resets automatically when operating conditions return to normal. Both balanced and unbalanced inputs are available for connecting to the rest of your system. The large, blue watt meter is not only mesmerizing to look at but also provides a swift and accurate reading of the amplified signal.

All three modules are housed in a beautiful polished stainless steel chassis that compliments the classic glass front panel, knobs and brushed aluminum handles along with nearly any room decor. The MC2KW is perfect for both 2-channel music lovers as well as in home theater systems.

- MC2KW is the ultimate power in the universe of McIntosh amplifiers.
- Unique three chassis design features two 1000 Watt Power Modules combined into a third Output Module - surpassing what is possible from single box designs.
- The logarithmic power requirements of music reproduction require brief bursts of high power amplification. MC2KW is capable of producing 2000 Watts continuous power and peaks up to 8000 Watts. When combined with the finest loudspeakers, MC2KW will duplicate the dynamic range of live music.
- The Power Modules feature LED illuminated McIntosh globes, laser etched into the back side of the half inch thick glass faceplates. Power output is displayed on the Power Module in a huge blue iconic McIntosh blue Watt meter. The beautiful
appearance of the MC2KW amplifier befits its superb performance.

The McIntosh audio system is a stereo system that uses two speakers or a multi-channel system using 3 to 12 speakers. Components are the individual units that individually will offer the highest performance and fidelity possible.

Connecting the various components into a complete system of source components, control center, amplifiers, and speakers will deliver the best possible sound.

Preamplifiers are Control Centers that switch source units, turn volume up and down, and in some cases allow tone shaping or turning bass and treble sounds up or down.

Amplifiers are the ‘Muscle’ of the audio system and amplify the small audio signal from the preamp to a large one that will operate speakers and determine how dynamic the reproduced sound of the system is in one unit.

Integrated amplifiers are single chassis models that combine the function of the preamplifier and power amplifier in one unit.

Precision McIntosh power meters allow the monitoring of sound level balance and output level between the two stereo, or many multi-channel speaker channels. Meters protect valuable speaker systems from damage as long as more watts than the speakers are designed to handle are not exceeded.

The McIntosh Output Autoformer is a special transformer that is designed and manufactured in-house by McIntosh. This allows any speaker type to be used with a McIntosh amplifier and have all of the power that the amp is designed to deliver.

All other amplifier designs will not have even power with differing speaker designs. McIntosh amplifiers with the output Autoformer™ will deliver ‘All the Power You Pay For’ regardless of speaker type chosen.

Quad Differential is the most sophisticated McIntosh amplifier design that allows the impossible combination of the most powerful amplifiers with the very lowest distortion and background noise. Many would say this is the impossible combination; highest power with lowest noise but Quad Balanced make the impossible possible.

Electromagnetic switching is used in McIntosh preamplifiers and integrated amplifiers to switch the variety of source components connected. Rather than the common mechanical switches that will deteriorate with wear, electromagnetic switches are high tech switching nodes that allow very long, trouble free operation.

Performance between vacuum tube and solid state (or transistor) gear is almost identical in technical specifications. Many users request vacuum tube units that offer a slightly classical "tube" or "warm" sound to the audio presentation.

Tube and solid state models may be mixed and will all work together in a McIntosh component stereo system. Many now use downloaded music as their main media source. Sound quality will always depend on the quality of the download files and the music system interface. McIntosh offers the most advanced computer USB interface in most of our preamplifiers and integrated amplifiers which will maximize audio performance.
