Providing flexibility in system set-ups, balanced and unbalanced connections are available for both variable and fixed-volume audio outputs, while the D150 can also be used as a headphone amplifier.
A 1/8″ mini-jack is provided for control data from the data output jack of a McIntosh preamp or A/V control centre.
Just under 4″ in height, the D150 sports McIntosh’s characteristic small form factor look, with knobs and handcrafted black-glass front panels.
The D150 will carry a price tag of $4,995.
