McIntosh MR87

AM/FM Tuner

McIntosh MR87
The new McIntosh MR87 tuner combines exceptional sensitivity with a unique tuning mechanism, resultin in a high performance AM/FM tuner which fits the best audio systems. Modern-day miniaturisation and the benefits of software defined tuner technology all contribute to a property valued by audiophiles: exceptional reception under all conditions, at remarkably low noise levels.In order to reduce noise McIntosh has applied an R-core power transformer in the MR87. The vitally important front end only utilizes carefully selected components, and the result can clearly be heard. Cinch and balanced outputs, together with optical and coaxial outputs make deployment of the MR87 exceptionally flexible. A generous display shows RDS information, as well as a wide range of noise/multipath signal strangth, presettable scan sensitivity and 50/100kHz tuning steps. A heavy but smoothly operating tuning mechanism (including digitally emulated tuning scale indicator) give the MR87 a classical, analogue character, marrying old-style tuning comfort to the accuracy and control of a modern digital system. A triple polished stainless steel chassis and glass front panel feature the signature McIntosh look that ensure that the MR87 will appear "like new" for many years to come. The MR87 comes with its own remote control. It supports McIntosh data and power control and, via IR or RS232, supports third party controllers as well.
