What else to know about the McIntosh MC 7150?

This is a stereo power amplifier developed by inheriting the MC2600 technology.\ \ An output transformer is used to keep the operating temperature of the amplifier low, to improve stability, and to protect the amplifier from overloads.\ In addition, materials and structures are carefully examined to improve various characteristics such as strain rate.\ \ A symmetric circuit developed in MC2600 is used for the amplifier circuit after the pre-drive stage.\ In order to fully realize the advantages of this circuit, which is basically free from noise and distortion, we strictly select and use elements with the same characteristics.\ The final stage connected to the output transformer uses three parallel metal can-type high-reliability transistors with a total of 12 left and right channels.\ \ In the protection circuit, the power guard system with the clipping output, the power guard system with an indicator operates to automatically reduce the gain, and a current limiter circuit is installed.\ \ The input sensitivity can be adjusted freely with the left and right independent continuous variable level control.\ In addition, 2.5 v is input at the center click point. \- Audiodatabase
