McIntosh MC1.2KW Power Amplifier offers 1.2KW of Power

The new MC1.2KW Power Amplifier from McIntosh joins a legendary family of monoblock designs, bringing a massive design to a robust 1,200W platform that boasts 200 amps peak output current capability.

A massive regulated power supply guarantees power to spare and the ability to drive any loudspeaker without regard to impedance or efficiency. The MC1.2KW delivers full rated output power (1,200 watts), into 2, 4, and 8 ohm loads. Proprietary Sentry Monitor technology provides fuse-free automatic short circuit protection and Power Guard prevents loudspeaker-damaging clipping.

And for a frightening $11,000 this mono block features a giant wattmeter on the front panel which provides accelerated peak-pausing response to ensure recognition of musical transients and fiber-optic illumination guarantees a lifetime of trouble-free performance.
