Is the McIntosh MA9500 the Perfect Integrated Amp?

The MA9500 Is Analog and Digital Audio Bliss

Is the McIntosh MA9500 the Perfect Integrated Amp?

In the world of high-end audio, most innovation is evolution rather than revolution. This isn’t to say there’s no innovation in hi-fi today—far from it. But the analog technology side of hi-fi is tried and true, and it doesn’t change that much from year to year. That’s why Mcintosh Audio, on its website, says that the lifespan of its components sometimes exceeds human ones. And they’re not exaggerating. Decades-old McIntosh amplifiers are passed down in families and prized by lovers of vintage audio.

Digital audio technology, however, changes more rapidly. In the past few years, high-resolution digital formats have evolved, and so has the HDMI connection standard, to name a couple. Streaming has become the standard for daily music enjoyment over digital downloads and physical media. So, it’s possible that a digital audio product from 10 years ago isn’t up to date in 2022.

McIntosh Audio doesn’t like to design products that last only a few years. That’s one reason that they have devised an upgrade path for the digital connections and capabilities of their integrated products. That’s one of the things that makes the new MA9500 integrated amplifier stand out. The analog side of this powerful amp is ready for decades of use, McIntosh style. And the digital connectivity and processing side is upgradeable when you need it down the road.

As a premier McIntosh dealer in Alpharetta and Metro Atlanta, GHT Group is excited to see this product evolution, as an integrated amp like the MA9500 might be the last one you ever need to buy for your listening room! Of course, we would hope to see you again.

What’s New in McIntosh Audio?

Blending Digital New and Analog Old, McIntosh Delivers Pure Audio Enjoyment

What’s New in McIntosh Audio?

In the technology world, some companies succeed wildly for some time only to fade away when confronted with changes and new competitors. Others manage to survive great shifts in their industry. Remember DEC in minicomputers? How about Packard and Studebaker automobiles? These once great companies faded, were absorbed into others, or disappeared. 

Some companies manage to transcend technological and industry change and continue to thrive. McIntosh Audio is one such brand. By continuing to focus on delivering a high-end audio experience, they manage to continue succeeding with products that offer old-fashioned analog performance with new-fangled digital technology essential for today’s audio. Today’s McIntosh continues to make built-like-a-tank amplifiers for which it is renowned, along with newer lifestyle products and automotive audio systems for luxury brands. As a proud McIntosh dealer in Atlanta, GHT Group is pleased to display McIntosh products in our 20,000 square foot Marietta showroom. 

So, what’s new in Mcintosh audio? Keep reading to find out about three new products you may want on your holiday wish list!

Hear What You’ve Been Missing with McIntosh Amplifiers

There’s No Substitute for Power

Hear What You’ve Been Missing with McIntosh Amplifiers

In the automotive world, the old adage goes, "There's no substitute for horsepower." Indeed, if you want a car to go fast, you need an engine that delivers the beans. Fat tires, spoilers, and racy styling do nothing for speed, but an engine that delivers power to the wheels does.

But can you have too much power? In cars, perhaps, but power is good if used judiciously. After all, Dodge seems to sell all the 800 horsepower Hellcats it can make. Does anyone need 800 horsepower? No, but it sure is fun.

In high-performance audio, power is good too. With high-end speakers, the more power they are fed, the better they tend to sound. In fact, many speakers don’t sound their best unless they are supplied with copious amounts of power. That’s when you start hearing things in familiar recordings that you’ve never heard before. And it’s because the amplifier is wringing every last detail from your music.

McIntosh is an audio company that needs no introduction to hi-fi enthusiasts. The company recently celebrated its 70th anniversary, and while today it offers a full array of high-end components, nothing has cemented its reputation more than its beefy, iconic amplifiers.

Where can you find McIntosh amplifiers? GHT Group is proud to be a McIntosh dealer serving Cumming, GA and the metro Atlanta area. Keep reading below about two of our favorite McIntosh amplifiers to bring the power to your system.
