Having a great pair of headphones is one thing, but getting a dedicated headphone amplifier is another thing entirely. The MHA100 is the very first amplifier of its kind from McIntosh and gives four digital inputs that allows the gadget to decode music at up to 32 bits and 192kHz for maximum enjoyment and quality. The three impedance ranges of 8-40, 40-150, and 150-600 ohms, promise that no matter which pair of headphones or earbuds you use (regardless of brand), they will all sound great. CNET even called it the "Cadillac of headphone amplifiers" in their August review. It also features the brand's Headphone Crossfeed Director, which gives depth and spatiality. If you have a desk job, the MHA100 is small enough to sit by a computer, and if you want to listen on speakers instead of headphones, the amplifier has 50 watt stereo speaker outputs.
The amplifier is priced at $4,500 and is available at various McIntosh dealers.
