"Big, Bold, Beautifully Solid McIntosh Sound" Turns the MB50 Streaming Audio Player into a High-End Wireless Jukebox: Features DTS Play-Fi Technology for Lossless Playback, Easy Setup

MB50 comes with built-in access to TIDAL, Amazon Prime, Deezer, SiriusXM, Spotify, and more. A host of analog and digital inputs means it can also function as a mini-preamplifier. Most importantly, the award-winning MB50 boasts McIntosh's famed sound quality and performance. Simply connect it to your existing setup via Wi-Fi, download the Apple or Android app, and you're ready to stream both your personal digital library as well as all the content available on popular streaming services. Two Wi-Fi antennas, McIntosh's classic black glass front panel, stainless-steel chassis, and custom-machined aluminum end caps complete a go-to component ideal for matching with McIntosh's MXA80 integrated system and MHA150 headphone amplifier for incredible listening experiences. 100% Money-Back Guaranteed.
A big advantage of DTS Play-Fi compared to many other streaming options is Critical Listening mode, which permits native playback of up to 24-bit/192kHz high-resolution files with no down-sampling. Many common audio formats are compatible with MB50, including .mp3, .m4a, .flac and .wav files. DLNA is also supported. MB50 can even be hardwired to your network via a USB-to-Ethernet adapter (not included). Have more than one audio system in your house you'd like to stream to? No problem. Just add an MB50 to each and then you can stream the same music to all systems. Or, if you have multiple mobile devices with the app, you can simultaneously stream different music to each system.
"It's smooth, rich, and powerful in its sound and boasts McIntosh's renowned build quality, making it a joy to own and use."
