* Limited to 150 units
¥ 945,000 (tax included, released in 2007)
Only 150 units of this integrated amplifier were produced to commemorate the establishment of Macintosh Japan.
Gold stainless steel panels are used for chassis and side panels.
A high-grade speaker terminal is also used.
The President of Macintosh Laboratory, Charles Lindor himself writes his own autograph on each unit.
Also, there is a limited number of serial numbers on the top cover.
Equipped with a 5-band equalizer that can adjust five frequencies within ± 12 dB each.
The center position of each knob is a flat position that bypasses the circuit.
It uses an electromagnetic switch filled with inert gas. This switch is resistant to oxidation, and enables distortion-free signal switching without contact failure for a long time.
Equipped with a wide-range output auto-former, it delivers equivalent output under both 2 Ω, 4 Ω, and 8 Ω loads while maintaining broadband characteristics.
It also protects the speakers from damage to the system, such as power transistor failures.
It is equipped with a power guard in which the comparator limits the gain and controls the output distortion when the input / output waveform difference exceeds the maximum power capability, and a sentry monitor circuit which monitors the dynamic operation time, voltage and current of the output stage and controls the current to be kept within a safe level.
In addition, protection circuits such as DC protection, temperature protection, turn-on delay and in-rush protection are incorporated.
Equipped with a Blue Eyes Power Meter that displays the actual output power.
