Ever wondered why speakers, amplifiers, projectors etc. come with a slightly heftier price tag in India compared to their overseas counterparts? Well, part of the answer lies in our country's Goods & Services Tax (GST).

But here's the kicker: Don't let that GST input slip through your fingers! Especially when some of the products we supply carry a GST rate of 18% and 28%.

At AVStore, we provide you with a GST compliant invoice for every purchase.

MC 2301

  • 300 Watt Quad Balanced Monoblock
  • Vacuum tube powered

From the demands of massed chorale to full-on rock and roll, the MC2301 delivers the most extraordinarily lifelike and dynamic performance ever heard from a McIntosh tube amplifier. With an output of 300 Watts, it provides enough high power to drive even the most demanding loudspeaker. And thanks to McIntosh’s patented Unity Coupled Circuit output transformer, this full 300 Watts is available to 2, 4 or 8 Ohm speakers.

The MC2301 is the first McIntosh vacuum tube amplifier to use McIntosh’s Quad Balanced design. This design cancels virtually all noise and distortion in the audio signal. As a result, even when amplified to high levels the signal is effectively free of any distortion. McIntosh’s fuse-less short-circuit protection circuit Sentry Monitor™ disengages the output stage before current exceeds safe operating levels and then resets automatically. Inputs for balanced and unbalanced cables are available to provide flexibility in connecting the rest of your audio system.

The attractive blue meter is flanked by two rows of output vacuum tubes that bring even more visual appeal to the front panel to go along with the knobs and brushed aluminum handles that all effortlessly blend with the polished stainless steel chassis. The MC2301 is well suited for stereo music systems.
