General:

XR50 is a cleverly engineered compact bookshelf speaker that produces the rich, full sound one would expect from much larger speakers.

Fine gloss wood finishes are offered in Black and Red Walnut.

The magnetically attached grill is acoustically transparent and covered with a neutral black cloth. Unique front panel McIntosh logo may be illuminated when used with McIntosh components.

"Killer compact speakers with power and joy of playing." - Lyd & Bilde

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; they are gold-plated to prevent corrosion and ensure a quality signal is delivered to the XR50.

"Its sound quality belies its diminutive size and on sheer bass output, it’s a tour de force." - audioFi.net

Amplifiers from 75 to 300 Watts are appropriate power for XR50. An additional connection passes on Meter Illumination Control for compatible power amplifiers.

When connecting the XR50 3-way bookshelf speaker to an amplifier, it is important to use cables of adequate size so that there is no signal loss. This bookshelf speaker can be used in both stereo music and home theater systems.

McIntosh Performance Features Include:
• High Power Handling
The Loudspeaker Elements and Crossover Components of the XR50 are all chosen for use with amplifiers up to 300 watts, yet can be driven with a 75 watt amplifier.

• Low Harmonic and Intermodulation Distortion
The XR50 Loudspeaker System is capable of reproducing the full dynamic range of a symphony orchestra with very low audible distortion of any kind.

• Low Frequency Port
The XR50 Loudspeaker System utilizes a vertical port with a rear opening to increase bass output, reduce distortion and improve the overall efficiency of the Loudspeaker.

• Superior Imaging
Locating the Super Tweeter between the two Midranges generates a symmetrical polar response for superior imaging.

• McIntosh Custom Binding Posts
McIntosh patent pending gold plated input terminals accept high current signals. They accept large diameter wire and spade lugs. Banana plugs may also be used.

• Power Control
The Power Control Input supplies power to illuminate the XR50 McIntosh Logo and Power Control Output supplies power for remote turn-on of additional Components.
