“The C47 and MC302 are very flexible and good at big movements, rich and unrestrained on expression of emotion. In both the voice and musical instruments, they are full of determination without even the slightest hesitation. This determination could make an appeal to the audiences fascinated by their superb performance.” - HiFi Review
Many noted McIntosh technologies are incorporated into the MC302. Power Guard® prevents over-driving of the amplifier and the resulting harsh sounding clipping that could damage your speakers. Sentry Monitor™ is our fuse-less short-circuit protection circuit that disengages the output stage before current exceeds safe operating levels and then resets automatically when operating conditions return to normal. Our patented Solid Cinch™ speaker binding posts easily but securely attach the speaker cables to prevent them from coming loose and possibly causing a short; the binding posts are also gold-plated to prevent corrosion and ensure a quality signal is sent over your speaker cables to your speakers.
