MA8950 Integrated Amplifier

Bring all your music to life with the MA8950 Integrated Amplifier. It offers 200 Watts per channel and combines many new features with our legendary amplification prowess and preamplifier capabilities into one all-encompassing unit.

The Roon Tested MA8950 features the new McIntosh Monogrammed Heatsinks™. They are made from high-quality materials with excellent thermal conductivity properties and are so efficient at dissipating heat that they warrant bearing the McIntosh “Mc” logo. Besides helping your MA8950 run cool, they’ll also help it look cool thanks to our new finishing process that results in a higher quality appearance. They are connected to advanced high current output transistors that eliminate thermal equilibrium lag time (or warm-up time) so that the first musical note played sounds just as good as songs played later in your listening session.

Compared to the MA8900, the MA8950 includes greater dynamic headroom and the new DA2 Module. The DA2 Module features improved digital processing and an HDMI ARC Return channel for easy integration with a television. 

At 200 Watts per channel, the MA8950 has enough power to properly drive virtually all loudspeakers. And the renowned McIntosh Autoformer™ guarantees your speakers will always receive the full 200 Watts regardless if they have 2, 4, or 8 Ohm impedance.
