McIntosh has been hand-making world-class audio equipment for seven decades. Each component is produced in the same upstate New York factory the company has called home for 60 years. Recognized around the globe, McIntosh continues to set new standards for high-end performance, unstinting reliability, and product longevity. In an era where manufacturing shortcuts and outsourcing are the norm, McIntosh takes a no-compromise approach defined by hands-on workmanship, singular expertise, outstanding service, and an unabated passion for being the best in its field. These rarified characteristics – as well as its iconic Blue Watt meters, namesake glass faceplates, and patented innovations such as Power Guard and Autoformers – set McIntosh apart.
