The MX100 offers unparalleled McIntosh home theatre performance in a streamlined design that gives you exactly what you need to enjoy all your favourite HD and 4K programming, Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD discs, and DVDs.
The MX100 has been designed to be heard but not necessarily seen. It is well-suited for installation in a hidden or out-of-the-way A/V equipment rack. It has rack-friendly 2U physical dimensions and rack mounting brackets to facilitate installation (the mounting brackets are removable for non-rack installations). Not limited to just rack installation, it also looks and works well when placed out in the open for all to see and enjoy.
With 4 HDMI inputs and 1 HDMI output, all being HDCP 2.2 compliant. Each HDMI port also has 18 Gbps of bandwidth to support High Dynamic Range (HDR) formats Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG; 4K Ultra HD at 50/60Hz; 4:4:4 colour spacing; Rec. 2020; and 3D video pass-through.
Enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC) functionality is included on the HDMI output. eARC offers improved bandwidth so the MX100 can receive higher resolution audio from your TV to produce the best possible sound quality. Two coax and 2 optical digital audio inputs are also included.
MX100 has 11.2 discrete audio channels for audio output, also known as a 7.2.4 home cinema configuration. Seven premium 32-bit Digital-to-Analog Converters (DACs) provide audiophile-grade processing for the best audio playback. MX100 can be connected to your home theatre amplifiers via its 13 balanced (XLR) outputs. By utilising balanced connectors, you can be assured of the cleanest sound being sent through your balanced audio cables to your amplifier(s) and ultimately to your home cinema speakers and subwoofer(s). Bass and treble tone controls are included to help fine tune the audio to your personal preferences.
While having a streamlined design, MX100 still includes many McIntosh design cues including a black glass front panel, an illuminated McIntosh logo, rotary control knobs, and a familiar form factor highlighted by silver trim.
