McIntosh Announces the MHA50 Portable Decoding Amplifier

Oct 09, 2017

Listen to your music with McIntosh sound quality no matter where you go with the new MHA50 portable player. Your headphones will thank you.

Nearly everyone walks around with most if not all of their music library in their pocket or bag where it’s readily accessible via a pair of headphones. While convenient, it likely doesn’t sound as good as it could. The new handheld MHA50 Portable Decoding Amplifier from McIntosh can make your music sound its best – and likely better than you’ve ever heard it before – through your headphones.

The MHA50 includes wired inputs for Apple® iOS devices, Android devices compatible with USB On-The-Go technology plus Mac® and Windows® computers. It can also wirelessly connect to these devices via Bluetooth® 4.1 with aptX™ technology that ensures you receive the highest possible sound quality from your Bluetooth source device.

Featuring a high-performance 32-bit digital-to-analog converter (DAC), it decodes music files from almost any digital source and outputs audio that is superior to what your device alone can produce. Its rechargeable battery provides up to 6 hours of playback on a single charge when connected via Bluetooth; playback can last even longer when using the wired connections.

The MHA50 comes complete with four USB adapter cables to connect various devices, a leather carrying case, and a wall mount charger.

Pre-order is available now, with shipping expected in mid-November.
