About

Description

The McIntosh MA8950 Integrated Amplifier, is a powerful and versatile device that combines McIntosh's renowned amplification expertise and preamplifier technologies into one comprehensive stereo sound system. This amplifier replaces the award-winning MA8900, which was named the Best Stereo Integrated Amplifier by Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity in 2017, and adds several performance enhancements to an already outstanding integrated amplifier.

The MA8950 delivers 200 Watts per channel, ensuring that it can power a wide range of speakers with ease. Additionally, the amplifier's dynamic headroom has been increased from 2.0dB to 3.1dB, thanks a doubling in filter capacity. This enhancement gives the MA8950 an even greater ability to reproduce musical peaks with less distortion, resulting in a more accurate and engaging listening experience. The increased filter capacity of the MA8950 also contributes to its impressive bass performance. With more control and precision, the amplifier delivers deeper, tighter, and more impactful low-end frequencies. This improvement in bass control and performance ensures that it can handle even the most demanding musical passages with ease.

The MA8950 features several other performance enhancements that contribute to its outstanding sound quality including improved circuitry and more refined components that work together to deliver a more immersive and engaging listening experience.

          Benefits of McIntosh MA8950 2-Channel Integrated Amplifier

          DA2 Digital Audio Module

          DA2 Digital Audio Module

          The MA8950 comes standard with the DA2 Digital Audio Module instead of the DA1 Digital Audio Module that came in the MA8900. The DA2 offers 7 digital inputs: 2 coaxial, 2 optical, 1 USB, 1 MCT, and 1 audio-only HDMI Audio Return Channel (ARC)1 connection. TVs with a compatible HDMI (ARC) output can be connected to the MA8950 to enjoy your TV’s sound like never before through your home music system. Popular multi-channel audio formats from Dolby® and DTS® are supported and will be expertly converted to 2-channel audio for proper playback. The MA8950 remote can control the TV’s power and volume when CEC communication is enabled in both the amplifier and the TV. The DA2 also features increased DSD playback support of up to DSD512 via the USB input.  

          Audiophile-grade, Quad Balanced DAC

          Audiophile-grade, Quad Balanced DAC

          The DA2 is powered by an audiophile-grade, Quad Balanced, 8-channel, 32-bit Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC) that has improvements in both dynamic range and total harmonic distortion compared to the DAC in the DA1. The coax and optical inputs in the DA2 can decode digital music up to 24-bit/192kHz for playback of high-resolution audio. The DA2 has a McIntosh exclusive MCT input that offers a secure DSD connection to any of our MCT series of SACD/CD Transports to deliver the best possible sound quality of the high-definition audio found on your SACDs. And with its modular design, it's possible to someday replace the DA2 with a newer Digital Audio Module.

          Analog connectivity

          With its vast selection of digital audio inputs, analog connectivity has not been overlooked on the MA8950. It comes with 1 balanced and 6 unbalanced stereo inputs plus 1 Moving Coil and 1 Moving Magnet phono inputs for your turntable(s). All inputs can be given custom names for user-friendly system control and configuration. The Moving Coil phono input comes with adjustable loading so you can fine tune the sound of your vinyl records. All unbalanced analog connectors are made from premium gold-plated solid brass for superior signal handling and grounding. All analog and digital inputs can be given custom names for user-friendly system control and configuration. For further flexibility in setting up your stereo system, the MA8950 includes an unbalanced fixed output and an unbalanced variable output that can be used to send the audio signal to a second power amplifier.

          Powerful control microprocessors

          Other updates include upgraded power supply components for even lower noise emission and added reliability under the most demanding conditions. The MA8950 continues to use powerful control microprocessors for robust and smooth system operation, as well as some of the latest state-of-the-art audio-grade circuit components to produce the best sound possible. The MA8950's 200 Watts per channel are delivered by a pair of the famous McIntosh Autoformer™ and is enough power to properly drive virtually all loudspeakers. The unique design of the Autoformer guarantees your speakers will always receive the full 200 Watts regardless if they have 2, 4 or 8 Ohm impedance.

          Roon Tested

          The MA8950 is one of many McIntosh products to receive Roon Tested designation from Roon Labs. As a Roon Tested partner, McIntosh has provided equipment to Roon for testing with a variety of different operating systems and computers, and shared information about its design and capabilities.

          Classic McIntosh design

          The entire unit is wrapped in the timeless McIntosh aesthetic with a black glass front panel with LED lighting, blue watt meters, control knobs, illuminated logo, aluminum end caps and a beautiful polished stainless steel chassis.

          PN: 1) The HDMI (ARC) input will only play audio from a compatible TV. It will not pass video to or from a TV, or play audio from any non-TV source.
