McIntosh expands its CI lineup by introducing the MI502 Digital Amplifiers. The McIntosh MI502 Digital Amplifier utilizes class D amplification in a form factor CI installer. McIntosh Group pulled off a rather spectacular home theater demonstration at CEDIA 2022, in partnership with Kaleidescape, Trinnov Audio, and a number of other brands.

Not everyone wants power-hungry AB power amplifiers in their racks. The slimmer form factor gives CI installers more room to play with. The new McIntosh MI502 2-Channel Digital Amplifier offers world renowned McIntosh sound quality using innovative closed loop digital switching technology with resilient power supplies to produce groundbreaking performance levels for custom install audio.

The MI502 boasts a variety of home entertainment uses including driving home theater speakers, in-wall subwoofers, or outdoor speakers, all delivering 500 Watts of power into 8 ohm speakers or 800 Watts into 4 ohm speakers.

In addition to several of the brand’s patented technology innovations, the highly efficient class D MI502 features two of McIntosh’s iconic blue watt maters that display the power output of each channel.

Key Features:

  • Power Guard® signal overload technology that prevents overdriving and damaging the speakers
  • Sentry Monitor™ short-circuit protection
  • Power Control 12 Volt triggering capabilities
  • Eco-friendly On/Off signal sensing
  • Rack mountable with 2U height
  • Runs quiet thanks to not needing a cooling fan

The McIntosh MI502 will be available via US-authorised McIntosh Dealers beginning November 2022, with the rest of the world soon after, with an MSRP of $4,500 USD.
