We’ve worked with McIntosh for decades, and we can honestly say that their product line deserves its prestigious reputation. Whether you invest in old collector’s equipment or the latest version fresh from their factory in Binghamton, NY, you are guaranteed great sound and the renowned McIntosh experience.
Power Guard Circuitry
McIntosh’s patented “Power Guard” circuitry was developed to ensure that distortion was kept out of the sound when the system is taxed beyond capacity. This can happen easily with the extreme dynamic range of digital sources or analog albums. This unique technology monitors the amplifier’s operation, corrects for overload, and assures great sound.
Power Guard circuitry is a unique feature of McIntosh Laboratory products. Developed to ensure superior sound quality and performance, Power Guard circuitry protects amplifiers from damage caused by excessive amplifier power. When the signal reaches beyond a predetermined level, Power Guard adjusts it to fit within safe parameters for the audio system. This reduces distortion and clipping when an amplifier is pushed too hard and ensures that the speakers remain undamaged.
McIntosh Laboratory has been pioneering sound technology since 1949, making them one of the most trusted names in audio equipment design. The company’s commitment to excellence has led it to become an industry leader thanks in part to its development of Power Guard circuitry. By protecting amplifiers from over-driving and reducing distortion, McIntosh Laboratory gives consumers peace of mind knowing their high-end audio system will stay intact even under extreme conditions.
