Designing a great loudspeaker is as much a subjective art as an engineering exercise.
The acoustic balance of a speaker, even while taking full advantage of computer-aided design assistance, must, in the end, be fine-tuned by experienced ears.
Since 1970, the McIntosh Acoustic Engineering team has been dedicated to creating high end audio speakers capable of reproducing a live musical event as accurately as possible.
Combining sonic finesse with the power capability to take you to a live performance is the hallmark of McIntosh high end loudspeakers. They represent the final link in a chain of top-quality components designed to work together seamlessly.
