MxIntosh is shipping now their new MHA200 https://www.mcintoshlabs.com/products/headphone-amplifiers/MHA200 In Canada, the price will exactly the US price converted to CAD, without usual fleecing of unsuspecting Canucks (Bay Bloor Radio). Now it is difficult to audition anything but I almost, very stupidly, preordered this one but I looked at the spec and there are so many things I do not understand that it just would not make sense. The first is power output, there is a HP impedance knob and magically: Power Output 32 Ohm Load 500mW 100 Ohm Load 500mW 250 Ohm Load 500mW 600 Ohm Load 500mW "From the product webside: The Unity Coupled Circuit transformers have been adapted to produce 4 headphone impedance ranges of 32 – 100, 100 – 250, 250 – 600, and 600 – 1,000 Ohms at 500mW so that virtually every headphone can receive legendary McIntosh sound quality and performance." One of the head-fiers talked to McIntosh and it got nowhere: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/the-jps-labs-abyss-ab-1266-impressions-thread.666765/post-16158392 The next is THD, here is the spec: Total Harmonic Distortion 0.5% A-Weighted Signal to Noise Ratio 94dB unbalanced I understand that in terms of comparing to other amps (MHA150, BHA-1) specs numbers are very bad, but that the only thing I really understand. Example from BHA-1, according to what I read those are measurements that really matter. DISTORTION: THD+noise: < 0.005% 20 Hz to 20 kHz IMD: < 0.001% 60 Hz + 7 kHz mixed 4:1 In this context the MHA200 spec is really strange, but is it alarming? No one really heard this amp yet, "reviews" are meaningless. McI is, needless to say, a company with certain reputation. Maybe some folks way smarter than me can make some sense of it.
