McIntosh Blue Watt Meter Technology

The McIntosh Blue Watt meters have become a symbol of superior quality sound. Customers appreciate both the aesthetics and the protective information that the signature blue meters provide.

McIntosh designed its unique Output Autoformer® for use in most of the McIntosh solid-state power amplifiers. The manufacturing sequence begins with coil winding techniques that have been proven over 50 years.

Power Guard dynamically adjusts the input levels to avoid “clipping” while preventing harsh sounding distortion. The volume adjusts at the speed of light to prevent overdriving which results in better sound no matter what volume you want to enjoy.

Sentry Monitor is a fuse-less circuit which disengages the output stage before current exceeds safe operating level and resets automatically when a safe operation is restored.

McIntosh cuts 1/8 to ½ inch glass faceplates with genuine garnet dust to diminish friction and protect your investment for generations of enjoyment.

McIntosh distinctive tube amps are still manufactured today. Many audio enthusiasts enjoy the warmth of a tube amp. The MC275 celebrated its 50th year in 2011.
