McIntosh was originally founded in Silver Spring, Maryland, in 1949. The current Binghamton, NY factory continues to grow with the company. ‘Heritage’ refers to places and values past established that continue to influence the operation and culture of McIntosh today. The McIntosh founding fathers created a solid foundation based on sound business and scientific principles that continue to guide the company.

The people behind the scenes at McIntosh possess a desire to achieve the finest quality standards. McIntosh has defined quality sound reproduction and sets the standards for performance, reliability and service. McIntosh has handcrafted prestige audio products in Binghamton, NY since 1949. Glassfront panels, Output Autoformers®, Blue Watt Meters and Power Guard® are some of the innovations that enhance their product longevity.

Handcrafted in America since 1949, McIntosh is known for offering distinguished quality audio products, superior customer service and the ultimate experience in music and film. McIntosh continues to define the ultimate home entertainment experience for discriminating consumers around the world, with the iconic "McIntosh Blue" Watt Meters globally recognised as a symbol of quality audio. Since its inception, McIntosh has been powering some of the most important moments in music history and pop culture. From President Lyndon Johnson’s inauguration speech to Woodstock to the infamous Grateful Dead “Wall of Sound,” McIntosh has not only witnessed history, it has shaped it. In 1969 McIntosh Amplifiers powered Woodstock, a pivotal moment in Music history. Three days of peace, love and music for the hundreds of thousands who attended.

Over the years, many famous musicians, recording artists and producers have selected McIntosh audio systems for the rich quality of sound, to experience music the way the artist intended. The loyalty from the music community began in the 1960s era of rock and roll.

The MA352 Integrated Amplifier is a hybrid design that combines the finest of vacuum tube and solid state audio design principles. The result is an eye-catching amplifier that enjoys the best of these two opposing audio philosophies all while reproducing music at the highest quality level.

An all analog design, the MA352 has a vacuum tube preamplifier section that is powered by a pair of 12AX7A and a pair of 12AT7 vacuum tubes; its output stage is a direct coupled solid state amplifier that outputs 200 Watts per channel into 8 Ohm speakers or 320 Watts per channel into 4 Ohm speakers – enough power to properly drive virtually any set of loudspeakers. Dual scale blue Watt meters give an accurate readout of power output for both speaker impedances.

The MA352 has 2 balanced and 3 unbalanced inputs plus 1 Moving Magnet phono input with adjustable loading for connecting a turntable. It has gold-plated speaker binding posts to help prevent corrosion and ensure a quality signal is sent over your speaker cables to your speakers. A stereo preamplifier output is available for connecting a higher-powered amplifier; it can also be used to connect 1 or 2 powered subwoofers for added low frequency performance.

The MA352 is packed with numerous McIntosh technologies including:

  • Our patented Power Guard® technology that monitors the output signal for over driving and makes real time micro adjustments to the input signal to prevent harsh sounding clipping that could potentially damage your speakers
  • Our fuse-less short-circuit protection circuit Sentry Monitor™ that will disengage the output stage before current exceeds safe operating levels and then resets automatically when operating conditions return to normal
  • McIntosh Monogrammed Heatsinks™ which are connected to advanced high current output transistors that minimize thermal equilibrium lag (or warm-up) time
  • High Drive headphone amplifier with Headphone Crossfeed Director (HXD®)
  • A 5-band analog tone control allows for manual adjustment of your favorite recordings (each band adjustable by ± 12dB)
  • Home Theater Pass Through lets it be seamlessly integrated into a home theater system
  • Power Control to send power on/off signals to connected McIntosh components for easy system power up and shutdown
  • Data Ports to send remote control commands to connected source components

The unit sits on a stainless steel chassis polished to a mirror finish; vintage McIntosh-styled die cast aluminum name badges are affixed to each side. Blue output meters, control knobs, an illuminated logo, and a black glass front panel with direct LED backlighting complete the unit. It can be paired with an assortment of CD playersturntablestunersmedia streamers and speakers to complete your home audio system.
