McIntosh Labs has been around since the 1940’s, but up until now their products have focused squarely on loudspeaker systems. With the new MHA 100 desktop DAC/Amp, the company is changing that. Carrying a similar aesthetic as their existing line of preamps and receivers, the MHA 100 is unmistakably a McIntosh product at first sight. And man, is it good looking.
