What else to know about the McIntosh MAC 7200?The MAC7200's advanced signal quality monitor can display the multipath and noise levels of the incoming RF signal to help fine tune antenna placement for optimal reception. Dedicated PRESET and TUNING knobs enable easy radio operation. The FM tuner includes Radio Data System (RDS) support, allowing it to display optional information sent by radio stations such as the station’s name and call letters as well as the name of the artist and song being played. It features 20 presets for each radio band as well as a remote AM antenna. The 14 inputs are comprised of both analog and digital input types. For analog, there is 1 balanced and 5 unbalanced inputs plus 1 Moving Coil and 1 Moving Magnet input to connect [turntables](https://www.mcintoshlabs.com/products/turntables). For digital, there are 2 coaxial and 2 optical inputs, 1 USB and 1 proprietary MCT input (for use with our [MCT500](https://www.mcintoshlabs.com/products/cd-players/MCT500) SACD/CD Transport). All inputs can be given custom names for user-friendly system control and configuration. The digital inputs are contained in our DA1 Digital Audio Module; the DA1 can be replaced by future modules to easily keep the MAC7200 up to date with the latest digital audio technologies. At the heart of the DA1 is a powerful 8-channel, 32-bit Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC) used in Quad Balanced mode. PCM signals up to 32-bit/384kHz can be played via the USB input, allowing for playback of high resolution audio up to DSD256 and DXD 384kHz levels. The coax and optical inputs support up to 24-bit/192kHz files. Striking Monogrammed Heatsinks™ are included and they not only make a visual statement, but they are also very efficient at dissipating heat – which is why they warrant bearing the McIntosh “Mc” logo. They are connected to advanced high current output transistors that eliminate warm-up time so the MAC7200 is ready to go from the moment you turn it on. Other McIntosh technologies found in the MAC7200 include our Autoformer™ to deliver the full 200 Watts to each of your speakers regardless of their impedance, Power Guard®, Sentry Monitor™, Home Theater PassThru, bass and treble tone controls, High Drive headphone amplifier with Headphone Crossfeed Director (HXD®), and gold-plated speaker binding posts. The MAC7200 is one of many McIntosh products to receive [Roon Tested designation](https://www.mcintoshlabs.com/brand/news/Roon-tested2) from Roon Labs. As a Roon Tested partner, McIntosh has provided equipment to Roon for testing with a variety of different operating systems and computers, and shared information about its design and capabilities.
