"There’s a sense of confidence in the amplifier’s effortlessness in terms of its power capabilities and its handling of music, how it functions and its overall execution. It offers a rounded set of features. It’s solidly built and assembled. It looks gloriously attractive. Finally, and most importantly, it plays music to very high standards of dynamic realism, tonal accuracy and sheer listenability." - SoundStage Australia

The MA352 is packed with numerous McIntosh technologies including:

Our patented Power Guard® technology that monitors the output signal for over driving and makes real time micro adjustments to the input signal to prevent harsh sounding clipping that could potentially damage your speakers
Our fuse-less short-circuit protection circuit Sentry Monitor™ that will disengage the output stage before current exceeds safe operating levels and then resets automatically when operating conditions return to normal
McIntosh Monogrammed Heatsinks™ which are connected to advanced high current output transistors that minimize thermal equilibrium lag (or warm-up) time
High Drive headphone amplifier with Headphone Crossfeed Director (HXD®)
A 5-band analog tone control allows for manual adjustment of your favorite recordings (each band adjustable by ± 12dB)
Home Theater Pass Through lets it be seamlessly integrated into a home theater system
Power Control to send power on/off signals to connected McIntosh components for easy system power up and shutdown
Data Ports to send remote control commands to connected source components
The MA352 "allows you to experience music to the fullest by letting the dynamics and all the energy, as well as the subtleties and slightest nuances, be expressed freely. The width of the soundstage, balance of the frequency ranges, precision of the timbres, impact of the lows and clarity of the highs: the McIntosh MA352 combined all of these qualities with ease, no matter the style of music we listened to." - Son-Vidéo

The MA352 has "everything it takes to become an instant classic." - Audio Review

The unit sits on a stainless steel chassis polished to a mirror finish; vintage McIntosh-styled die cast aluminum name badges are affixed to each side. Blue output meters, control knobs, an illuminated logo, and a black glass front panel with direct LED backlighting complete the unit. It can be paired with an assortment of CD players, turntables, tuners, media streamers and speakers to complete your home audio system.

The Nova III is capable of creating a sound stage that won’t go unnoticed and will make it unique.

WOOD & LEATHER
Just like the cabinet sides, the front baffle and the top are made in the walnut or wenge hand-finished natural wood, set in a solid die-cast aluminium plate. Our designers wished to pay homage to the most representative material of Sonus Faber, making it even more of a standard-bearer. The natural leather embellishes the Voice of Sonus Faber, the brand's iconic configuration of tweeter and midrange and enriches the aesthetic rings around the woofers. Genuine Italian leather that, as per our brand's tradition, is applied by hand in the production department in Vicenza.

TWEETER, MIDRANGE & WOOFER
The 28mm silk soft dome tweeter features the DAD technology (Damped Apex Dome) that enhances the smoothness and extension in the high frequency by applying local dampening to the apex typically responsible for anti-phase behaviour of soft dome diaphragms. The DAD structure has been totally redesigned; a solid piece of aluminium die-cast includes both arch and ring on the dome to increase the strength and accuracy of the system. The midrange is completely designed and developed in Sonus Faber laboratories. Its cone is realised cooperating with Kurtmueller and represents the most advanced stage of the traditional Sonus Faber recipe: an air dried non pressed blend of cellulose pulp and other natural fibres: kapok and kenaf. This natural drying process gives the diaphragm a slightly rough surface of varying density and contributes damping and distributing cone resonances while guaranteeing a natural sound, increased transparency and details. The precious phase plug enhances the mid-hi frequencies emission while proudly stating that the Olympica Nova collection is made in Italy. The woofer cone has been developed in cooperation with Kurtmueller and it's based on an exclusive sandwich construction technique: two external layers of cellulose pulp are combined with a layer of hi-tech syntactic foam in between. This low mass and hi rigidity cone construction allows for a perfect reproduction of the low frequencies while guaranteeing absolute tonal coherence with the midrange. This transducer is assembled in Italy.

REFLEX PORT
The solid piece of extruding aluminium that completes the Stealth Ultraflex system, an extremely low-turbulence porting system, is inherited from Homage Tradition models. Favouring the profile of sea waves, the structure facilitates airflow through the duct while controlling its speed and reducing the distortion-causing turbulence.

CROSSOVER
The crossover network implements Paracross Topology, making the crossover less sensitive to radio-frequency interference, improving transient response and lowering noise floor. The filtering topology features new exclusive Clarity Cap capacitors, customised for Sonus Faber.

STRUCTURAL RIGIDITY & SUPPORTS
Similar to the Homage Tradition and Reference Collections, the walls are made with eight layers of blended wood, providing the cabinet with extreme rigidity. Inside the cabinet, carefully placed structural ribs are used as reinforcement to reduce vibration and to handle the overall power of the transducers movement. We have completely redesigned the supports, crafting them from solid aluminium bottom plates with steel spikes, taking inspiration from the Homage Tradition and Reference Collections, to guarantee greater strength and solidity.

The Nova III is capable of creating a sound stage that won’t go unnoticed and will make it unique.

WOOD & LEATHER
Just like the cabinet sides, the front baffle and the top are made in the walnut or wenge hand-finished natural wood, set in a solid die-cast aluminium plate. Our designers wished to pay homage to the most representative material of Sonus Faber, making it even more of a standard-bearer. The natural leather embellishes the Voice of Sonus Faber, the brand's iconic configuration of tweeter and midrange and enriches the aesthetic rings around the woofers. Genuine Italian leather that, as per our brand's tradition, is applied by hand in the production department in Vicenza.

TWEETER, MIDRANGE & WOOFER
The 28mm silk soft dome tweeter features the DAD technology (Damped Apex Dome) that enhances the smoothness and extension in the high frequency by applying local dampening to the apex typically responsible for anti-phase behaviour of soft dome diaphragms. The DAD structure has been totally redesigned; a solid piece of aluminium die-cast includes both arch and ring on the dome to increase the strength and accuracy of the system. The midrange is completely designed and developed in Sonus Faber laboratories. Its cone is realised cooperating with Kurtmueller and represents the most advanced stage of the traditional Sonus Faber recipe: an air dried non pressed blend of cellulose pulp and other natural fibres: kapok and kenaf. This natural drying process gives the diaphragm a slightly rough surface of varying density and contributes damping and distributing cone resonances while guaranteeing a natural sound, increased transparency and details. The precious phase plug enhances the mid-hi frequencies emission while proudly stating that the Olympica Nova collection is made in Italy. The woofer cone has been developed in cooperation with Kurtmueller and it's based on an exclusive sandwich construction technique: two external layers of cellulose pulp are combined with a layer of hi-tech syntactic foam in between. This low mass and hi rigidity cone construction allows for a perfect reproduction of the low frequencies while guaranteeing absolute tonal coherence with the midrange. This transducer is assembled in Italy.

REFLEX PORT
The solid piece of extruding aluminium that completes the Stealth Ultraflex system, an extremely low-turbulence porting system, is inherited from Homage Tradition models. Favouring the profile of sea waves, the structure facilitates airflow through the duct while controlling its speed and reducing the distortion-causing turbulence.

CROSSOVER
The crossover network implements Paracross Topology, making the crossover less sensitive to radio-frequency interference, improving transient response and lowering noise floor. The filtering topology features new exclusive Clarity Cap capacitors, customised for Sonus Faber.

STRUCTURAL RIGIDITY & SUPPORTS
Similar to the Homage Tradition and Reference Collections, the walls are made with eight layers of blended wood, providing the cabinet with extreme rigidity. Inside the cabinet, carefully placed structural ribs are used as reinforcement to reduce vibration and to handle the overall power of the transducers movement. We have completely redesigned the supports, crafting them from solid aluminium bottom plates with steel spikes, taking inspiration from the Homage Tradition and Reference Collections, to guarantee greater strength and solidity.
