McIntosh has released a wireless music system, the RS200, Wireless Loudspeaker System.
‘With its space-saving design and room-filling sound, the new McIntosh RS200 is versatile enough to accommodate the audio needs of nearly any room or lifestyle,’ said Philip Sawyer, of Synergy Audio Visual, which distributes McIntosh in Australia. ‘Although it’ s totally modern streamer, loaded with all the options you’d expect, its design incorporates classic McIntosh design cues including a black glass front panel, illuminated logo and control knobs, and of course a pair of those famous blue power output meters.’
The McIntosh RS200 incorporates eight drivers, comprised of two 150×100mm bass drivers, four 100mm midrange drivers and two 19mm tweeters, all driven by amplifiers that McIntosh says ‘offers 650-watts of total power.’ You can optionally connect a powered subwoofer to subwoofer output. The RS200’s wireless functions include Apple AirPlay, Bluetooth (aptX HD) and DTS Play-Fi, which has built-in interfaces for many streaming services including Amazon Prime Music, Pandora, Qobuz, Spotify and TIDAL. Users can also stream audio from wired devices connected to the RS200 to other Play-Fi devices on the same network via Play-Fi Line In Broadcasting.
The McIntosh RS200 also has an audio-only HDMI input to connect to TVs that have Audio Return Channel (ARC) capabilities; an optical digital input; a USB Type-B input to play music from a Macintosh or Windows computer; and a stereo analogue input (via 3.5mm jack). The McIntosh RS200 will be available in Australia next month for $5,995.
