McIntosh has taken the wraps off its latest creation: the MI502 Digital Amplifier.
As is often the case with McIntosh's wares, much of the MI502's appeal lies in its engineering. It can handle 500W of power at 8 ohms or 800W at 4 ohms, making it ideally suited to custom and high-end home cinema installs.

It's something of a Swiss Army knife, too. One MI502 can be used to power the front left and right speakers in a home cinema system, or drive two in-wall subwoofers; a pair can be used to drive the three front channels of a home cinema, plus one subwoofer. You can even use multiple MI502s to distribute the oomph even further.
The black glass front panel is set with two signature blue McIntosh Watt Meters that display the power output of each channel. To the rear, connections include balanced/unbalanced inputs and a pair of five-way speaker binding posts.
Other features include McIntosh's proprietary Power Guard signal overload technology (prevents overdriving the speakers) and Sentry Monitor short-circuit protection circuit (which disengages the output stage before the current exceeds safe levels).

Rack mounting should be a piece of cake as the MI502 is classed as a '2U' unit (3.5-inches high), meaning it should slot neatly into any standardised racking system.

State-of-the-art doesn't come cheap, mind. The MI502 is priced at £5,995 (around $7000 / AU$10,700). Orders are live now and shipping is expected to begin this month (United States and Canada), followed by the world shortly after.
