McIntosh MC300 a price point -- unknown (around the 1995 time)

Stereo power amplifier which can supply the large current which maintains the continuous power of 300W+300W to a 2/4/8ohm load intensity, and exceeds 85A at a peek with an original output transformer.

Common mode noise and a distortion are reduced by the balance circuit of a whole page complimentary to the level which cannot almost be measured.

If distortion exceeds the amount of conventions, multi-protections, such as a sentry monitor which monitors continuously the thermal cutoff of the turn-on delay at the time of power activation including the power guarding system on which gain is dropped automatically, or an auto-return type, and the output current, are carried.

The gilding output terminal which can respond also to a very-thick speaker cable is adopted.

The right-and-left independency and the strange continuous input level control volume are carried in the rear panel.
Moreover, the it1 position is established in 2.5V which carries out a best match with the control center of a mac.

Both the balance input and the imbalanced input are supported.

The using as high power monophonic power amplifier by a balance operation and bridge operation is possible.

The blue-eyes power meter is carried. In this meter, the actual output power which is a product of an Output voltage and an electric-current value is indicated by an operation. Furthermore, compared with business-use VU meter, it has about 10 times as high-speed responsibilities, and the power of amplifier of operation can be grasped correctly.
Moreover, a peek hold window is possible by the switchpoint change of the front panel.

The power control in / out termination which makes possible power-source gang control with other mac components are carried.
