The MA 5100 delivers McIntosh performance and quality in a combination solid state preamplifier and and solid state power amplifier. The stereo preamplifier has the lowest hum and noise of any combination unit. The square wave rise time is 3 microseconds.
With the MA 5100 RMS (continuos) music is reproduced accurately. There is no fuzziness. At full 45 watts power output, distortion is less than 0,25% from 20 to 20,000 Hz. Distortion is reduced as power is reduced. Here is adequate power to give you the sound of real live music in your home.
The silicon rectifier power supply gives instant voltage to the amplifier when needed. Recovery from the loudet musical passage is immediate. Your music sounds alive and thrilling played through the MA 5100. It is the perfect answer for the owner who wants the best in a power amplifier and the best in a preamplifier inn the smallest space.
45 RMS watts continuos per channel into 4 or 8 ohms both channels operation,
35 RMS watts continuos per channel into 16 ohm both channels operating
Will not exceed 0,25% at any power level to rated power output per channel from 20 to 20,000 Hz, both channels operating. Typical performance is less than 0,1% at rated power. Distortion decreases as output power is reduced
Will not exceed 0,25% if instantaneous peak power output is twice rated power or less perchannel with both channels operating for any combination of frequencies 20 to 20,000 Hz
10 - 25,000 Hz +0 -0,5 dB at rated power
8 - 50,000 Hz +0 -3,0 dB at one half rated power
