General:

Very capable and flexible phono preamp from McIntosh.

Despite its diminutive size this piece is finished with the same quality, attention to detail, and aesthetics as the more expensive MP1100. 

MP100

• 2-Channel Solid State Phono Preamplifier
• Moving Coil & Moving Magnet inputs
• Analog outputs + USB for ripping to computer

The MP100 is the first dedicated phono preamplifier from McIntosh and is designed to help both new and experienced vinyl lovers get the most fidelity, performance and – most importantly – enjoyment from their albums.

Like all McIntosh products, the MP100 is packed with features designed specifically for the vinyl lover including: Moving Coil and Moving Magnet inputs; Moving Coil and Moving Magnet adjustable loading (6 settings each); balanced and unbalanced analog outputs; optical, coax and USB digital outputs; and a Mono switch for when playing mono records to decrease noise and play the signal correctly.

*For pure analog use, the digital outputs can be completely disabled and powered down.

McIntosh Performance Features Include:
• Moving Coil and Moving Magnet Phono Inputs
The MP100 has two precision Phono Preamplifier Circuits, one for Moving Coil Phono Cartridges and the other for Moving Magnet Cartridges. Both phono inputs have selectable loading. The circuits use the latest designs providing the lowest possible noise and distortion. The close tolerance resistors and capacitors used in the RIAA Correction Equalization Circuitry provides an extremely flat frequency response.

• Digital Audio Outputs
The Digital Outputs encode PCM Signals from the se- lected Phono Input. Coaxial and Optical Outputs process Digital Signals at 96kHz with 24-Bit resolution. The Digital Outputs have two different output levels settings and the Digital Circuitry can be switched Off providing a true analog only signal processing.

• USB Digital Audio Output
The USB Digital Output provides Digital Signals at 96kHz with 24-Bit resolution from the selected Phono Input.

• Balanced and Unbalanced Outputs
The Balanced Outputs allow the connection using long cable lengths without a loss in sound quality. The MP100 also has unbalanced Output connections for compatibility with a wide range of audio components.
