Introducing McIntosh MP1100 Tube Phono Preamplifier
Vinyl lovers - the new McIntosh MP1100 Phono Preamplifier was made for you! The MP1100 is McIntosh's first fully balanced vacuum tube phono stage, and it's packed with some really innovative and useful features.
The MP1100 comes out of the box with preprogrammed profiles for Moving Coil and Moving Magnet cartridges as well as the MT5 and MT10 turntables.
There are an additional five profiles that are user customizable for any phono input. Two analog filters are also included that can solve some real-world problems. A Rumble Filter helps remove unwanted noise that may have crept in during recording and a Scratch Filter helps restore the sound quality to worn (well-loved!) LPs.
The MP1100's USB output can also be used to "rip" albums to your computer so you can preserve your favorite music in digital format as well. Retail for the MP1100 is $8,000, and units will be shipping soon.
