Audio hardware manufacturer McIntosh has this week announced a new addition to their range of precision turntable systems with the launch of the new McIntosh MT2 which is now available to purchase from worldwide dealers priced at approximately $4,000.
The McIntosh MT2 turntable has been designed to combine the latest turntable technology to deliver “superb performance and accurate playback” offering a great way to upgrade your home audio system to play vinyl records. The MT2 plays both 33-1/3 and 45 rpm records and features tracking force, anti-skate force, cartridge overhang and arm height are all of which are preset from the factory for the perfect performance straight out of the box. “The MT2 is a great way to upgrade your home audio system to play vinyl albums. A full complement of features allows for all recordings to be reproduced with flawless realism. Its advanced electronic and mechanical design will give you many years of smooth, trouble-free operation. A subtle green glow emanates from under the platter and the outside edges of the plinth for a touch of refined ambiance.”
The MT2 comes with a moving coil cartridge that has a high enough output to make it compatible with not only moving coil phono inputs but also moving magnet inputs, says McIntosh. The noise free vertical bearings on the turntable feature two precision ceramic surfaces with damping fluid; the horizontal bearing is a gimballed sapphire design. The belt driven, solid black outer platter is made from a special dynamically balanced polyoxymethylene (POM) and is over 1-inch thick.
