McIntosh 60th Anniversary Model

The MXA60 Integrated Audio System challenges old notions about what constitutes serious audio hardware and is capable of true-to-life sound reproduction that belies its diminutive size. No longer do you need to trade audio performance for convenience or space.

The MXA60 is a full-blown McIntosh HiFi stereo in miniature. Conceived and executed by the same engineering team responsible for the McIntosh Reference System, the MXA60 stands ready to introduce a whole new range of music lovers to the pleasures of owning a hand-made audio system. A system steeped in the McIntosh traditions of unerring quality and value. A system that is built to last a lifetime.

Ideally suited for an office, study, bedroom or weekend house, the MXA60 incorporates an amplifier, preamplifier, CD player, AM/FM tuner and loudspeakers all into one space saving – yet still high performance – unit. The heart of the conservatively rated 75 watt per channel unit is our low noise solid state circuitry combined with a vacuum tube that gives the MXA60 the sound quality that McIntosh is known for. The CD player features an all metal drive mechanism and can play CDs, SACDs and various recordable CDs. Specially designed 2-way loudspeakers, featuring select driver elements housed in custom extruded aluminum cabinetry, achieve a rich and full sized level of performance.
