McIntosh power output wattmeters indicate the true power that the amplifier delivers to the loudspeakers, regardless of speaker loads or impedance variations. Driven by circuitry that constantly measures both voltage and current, these illumniated, peak responding meters are extremely acurate, responding to 95% of full scale with only one cucle of a 2,000 Hz tone burst.
McIntosh has provided their unique output autoformers in all of their “flagship” power amplifiers since the beginning of the “solid state” era. McIntosh output autoformers enhance amplifier performance by providing optimum loading of the output devices. This assures that maximum current may be delivered by the output circuit without exceeding the safe limits of the output devices. Additionally, autoformers provide expanded operational flexibility and contribute to long, consistent performance with far greater reliability.
