However, if you have a disability we are here to help you. Please call our disability services phone line at (508) 771-4434 during regular business hours and one of our kind and friendly personal shoppers will help you navigate through our website, help conduct advanced searches, help you choose the item you are looking for with the specifications you are seeking, read you the specifications of any item and consult with you about the products themselves. There is no charge for the help of this personal shopper for anyone with a disability.

The MC205 delivers all the explosive dynamics that high-performance home theater systems require by delivering 200 Watts of power to each of the 5 individual channels commonly used in many home theaters. Our exclusive Dynamic Power Manager ® (DPM) technology enables it to deliver full power into 4 and 8 Ohm speakers - making the MC205 a perfect choice for a wide variety of home theater speakers. It can also be used as a two zone amplifier with three channels operating one zone and the remaining two channels assigned to a second zone.

I "never appreciated the sound quality of my Klipsch THX speakers as much as I did with the McIntosh [ MX122 and MC205] in place... Listening to DVD or Blu-ray movies proved to be a very impressive experience." - Son et Image Magazine


The MC205 does not require cooling fans so even the most subtle soundtracks are not masked by fan noise. It features many notable technologies found in our other amplifiers, including Power Guard ® which prevents over-driving of the amplifier and harsh sounding clipping that could damage your speakers. Sentry Monitor is a fuse-less short-circuit protection circuit that disengages the output stage before current exceeds safe operating levels and resets automatically when operating conditions return to normal. Inputs for balanced and unbalanced cables are available to provide flexibility in connecting the MC205 to your system or home theater processor . A bank of three blue watt meters provides instant recognition of power output of the front channels (the meters may be switched off if they conflict with the television or movie screen).


The classic black glass front panel and custom machined end caps allow the MC205 to blend in with any surrounding. Contact your local dealer to learn more.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.
