McIntosh is like a dream come true for audiophiles. Well, the likes of them just cannot help but drool over all the music products that come from the brand’s warehouse. And we do get a sneaky but strong feeling that those belonging to the lot aforementioned will not even think twice about spending $7,500 on the vacuum tube preamplifier-powered CD/SACD/MP3 player toting MXA60 integrated audio system.
And to put it simply out there, this wonderful creation actually sounds as good as it looks. Plus it comes with the backing of McIntosh’s 60 years of dedication in creating audio systems par excellence. We are won over because the AS has been designed and developed by the same team of McIntosh engineers who were responsible for the company’s high performance Reference System.
MXA60 packs in a two-way bass reflex loudspeaker system that has the legendary McIntosh sound. These have been fashioned in the old tradition of the mini-monitors while maintaining the a high quality audio. The new model is smaller and more powerful. Then there are the mid-woofers with a four-inch diameter that engage the listener in a palpable sense of realism.
