Introducing McIntosh MCT80

Introducing McIntosh MCT80

Aug 21, 2017

The MCT80 brings another small sized source component to the MXA80 Integrated Audio System.  It joins the MHA150, the MB50 and MP100 as high-performance additions that allow the MXA80 to truly become the centerpiece of a comprehensive, yet compact audio system.

The MCT80 is not just an add-on to the MXA80, however, as the MCT80 is a formidable SACD/CD Transport. It is McIntosh's first CD product to use their newest transport that is capable of playing user-generated DVD or CD Data Discs. It also has an advanced digital servo for faster, quieter, and accurate operation.

With the MCT80, you can enjoy your CDs all over again! Units are expected to begin shipping in September.
