Huge sound from a more compact McIntosh

If you crave classic McIntosh performance but space is at a premium, check out the MA5300 integrated amplifier. McIntosh designed it to be a bit more compact — it's the smallest solid state integrated amp they've ever made. And it still delivers the rich, powerful sound McIntosh gear is known for.


Along with its stellar sonic attributes, the MA5300 boasts the McIntosh look we know and love — black glass front panel, glowing blue power meters, big metal knobs, and illuminated logo. And, this gorgeous integrated amp is designed and built right here in the USA.


All your music at its best

With a total of 12 audio inputs, including six digital connections, the MA5300 offers plenty of connectivity for a complete audio system. For your analog audio gear, you'll find four unbalanced RCA inputs, plus a balanced XLR input for professional or high-end source components. The high-quality built-in phono preamp provides a connection for a turntable with a moving-magnet phono cartridge.
