McIntosh Laboratory Introduces New 8x140W MHT200 A/V System Controller

McIntosh Laboratory will officially launch a new home theater control unit and amplifier, the MHT200 A/V System Controller, at the Home Entertainment 2003 show in San Francisco, CA, later this week.

The new controller is already available from McIntosh dealers with a suggested retail price of $6,100 (US).

The MHT200 is a complete DTS / Dolby Digital / Dolby ProLogic II Audio/Video package. It features eight 140 Watt channels of amplification, making 6 channels available to power a home theater system, while the remaining 2 channels allow the enjoyment of a difference source, such as a CD Player, in another room.

8 analog audio and 6 digital audio inputs, along with component, S-Video and composite video switching, assure that the MHT200 will meet the demands of complex home entertainment and home theater set-ups.

The MHT200 provides 24-bit DSP processing for Dolby Digital, Dolby ProLogic II, and DTS Plus 6.1 processing. A 24-bit stereo A-to-D converter is applied to the analog input and four 24-bit stereo D-to-A converters are used at the DSP module output.

The MHT200 has internal sequential switching of a unique noise generator for system calibration. Calibration can be performed manually or the MHT200 will automatically calibrate the room’s speaker levels and delay times with the supplied microphone.

A tuner expansion slot is provided for a McIntosh TM-1 AM/FM tuner module.
