McIntosh MR88 AM / FM / XM / HD Tuner Introduced

Ultra High-Performance Tuner Module Offers Convenient and Elegant Solution For Accessing Today’s Diverse Range of Radio Programming

McIntosh Laboratory today announced the introduction of its new luxury class MR88 AM/FM/XM/HD Tuner (check price). The meticulously engineered broadcast-quality McIntosh MR88 not only offers discriminating consumers an unparalleled level of excellence in reception of traditional AM and FM broadcasts, it adds the power of HDRadio to deliver ultimate fidelity and a dramatically expanded range of programming options. The MR88 is also XM-ready, with the capability to control an outboard XM Mini-Tuner* and Home Dock*, adding to its rich and varied palette of programming. The MR88 is scheduled for availability in March.

Stylistically, the MR88 features a visually striking front-panel dial scale for AM and FM tuning. HD and Satellite tuning are displayed on a two-line line digital front panel display. The MR88’s manual tuning features an advanced “Hall Effect” magnetic encoder actuated by an updated version of McIntosh’s distinctive smooth-dialing weighted flywheel. Built-in features include permanent memory for all settings and selectable auto-mute for local/distance tuning.

The MR88 features single-ended and balanced audio outputs for superb fidelity, while coaxial and optical digital audio outputs offer surprising flexibility. The 2 x 20 vacuum fluorescent display reads Artist, Title, Genre, Station, and Signal Strength. Twenty station presets are provided each for AM, FM and XM. The unit’s updated classic flywheel tuning and string dial indicator combine with an elegant inverted chrome chassis for a look and feel recalling legendary McIntosh components.

*XM Mini Tuner and Home Dock must be purchased separately along with an XM music subscription for accessing XM services.
