The Mclntosh MC500 is a 500 watt per channel stereo power amplifier created in a stunning
new contemporary industrial design. Two 5-1/2 inch True Power Output meters are mounted
behind the 1/2 inch thick glass front panel. The high efficiency of the MC500 circuits together
with oversize heatsinks utilizing convection cooling eliminates the need for internal cooling
fans. Typical Mclntosh attention to detail includes the use of 1% metal film resistors and
polypropylene capacitors throughout. Internal heatsink module connectors use gold plated
contacts to ensure reliable operation.
Gold plated Balanced as well as Unbalanced Input connectors ensure reliable signal transfer.
A rear panel MODE switch is also provided to change the MC500 output configuration from
a 500 watt per channel STEREO amplifier to a 1000 watt bridged mono amplifier The patented
Mclntosh Power Guard circuit in each channel eliminates the possibility of overdriving the
MC500 amplifier into clipping distortion. Mclntosh Sentry Monitor Output protection circuits
are also included. You ensure maximum amplifier reliability and long operating life with absolutely
no sonic limitations or compromises.
Each channel is coupled to the loudspeaker loads by a Mclntosh Output Autoformer with
matched impedances of 2, 4 and 8 ohms. Each channel of the MC500 can produce a peak
current output of more than 112 amperes, the highest ever for a Mclntosh stereo power
amplifier. The MC500 can successfully drive any type of loudspeaker. With a distortion limit
of less than 0.005%, the MC500 power amplifier is absolutely transparent, ensuring total
Mclntosh knows how to do it right.
