MX170 AV Processor - $20,925

The MX170 is McIntosh’s top of the line AV processor. As such, the company made sure that only the finest technology and parts are used.

The MX170 has 12 HDMi ports; 8 inputs and 4 outputs, all capable of the highest resolution and quality to ensure the best picture and sound.  This processor is capable of up to 15.1 audio channels for the most sophisticated home theater, and will decode Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and Auro-3D.

One HDMi input even has Enhanced Audio Return Channel functionality (eARC) so that higher resolution audio from your TV can be decoded for the best sound possible.

For the best room correction, McIntosh incorporates the Room Perfect technology, which takes measurements of your room from random locations to “learn” the acoustics of your space. This is different than the standard protocol which measures the seating space. By measuring random locations, Room Perfect can identify your room problems more accurately, and thus correct them better. This ensures that every seat gets the best sound.

Using the latest processors, the MX170 has more than enough power to give the finest picture and sound, while running cooler than ever, ensuring even better reliability, a hallmark of McIntosh.

Hosed in the immediately-recognizable McIntosh chassis, with black glass front panel, control knobs, illuminated logo and custom aluminum end caps, the MX170 has the timeless and highly sought-after McIntosh look. When only the best will do, the MX170 is the choice.
