McIntosh continues to embrace the custom installation market for homes with high-end home theater systems. Today the company announced its most accessibly priced A/V processor, model MX100, has implemented Simple Device Discovery Protocol (SDDP) and received Connects with Control4 Certification from Control4®.

The 11.2-channel MX100 A/V Processor ($5500) joins the step-up 13.2-channel MX123 A/V Processor ($8500, 2021 model) as the company’s two A/V Processors that are Control4 certified.

Originally released in November 2020, the MX100 A/V Processor is designed for modern home theaters needing only digital inputs that don’t require legacy analog inputs and is well suited for installation in a discrete A/V equipment rack with rack-friendly 2U physical dimensions and removable rack mounting brackets.

The MX100 has (4) HDMI inputs, (1) HDMI output and supports a variety of leading home theater technologies including Dolby Atmos and DTS:X; HDR formats Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG; 4:4:4 color spacing; Rec. 2020; 4K @ 60Hz video pass-through; and Enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC).

With the addition of Control4 connectivity, compatibility in a whole-home audio system becomes easier and more user friendly. Control4 enabled smart homes can also manage and control lighting, audio, video, climate control, intercom, and security.

Products embedded with SDDP are automatically discoverable by the Control4 platform for easy integration into automated systems. Integrators benefit from SDDP in the MX100 A/V Processor in many ways, from reduced installation complexity, configuration time, and costs in Control4 projects, making it a seamless addition for media room, audio, and other systems.

Audio is a key part of the Control4 experience, with native support for most streaming services, and high-resolution audio. With Control4 OS 3, all of the devices in a media room, home theater, or whole home including audio components, speakers, and services are united for simple control from Touchscreens, remotes, keypads the Control4 app, and more.

To work with a Control4 system, the MX100 needs to be using firmware version 2.134 or higher; if it is using a lower version then it will need to be updated by an authorized McIntosh dealer. Then the installer simply needs to add the MX100 to a Control4 system and the controller will recognize it. The correct driver will then be automatically downloaded from Control4 and the MX100 will be installed in the system.
