McIntosh MEN220 Room Correction System

The new MEN220 Room Correction System by McIntosh delivers a potent suite of Room Correction, Custom-EQ and 2-Way Crossover capabilities in one easy-to-use stereo component. While any single feature of the MEN220 has the power to optimize the sonic characteristics of the highest quality audio systems, combining the features can reveal a level clarity and resolution unattainable by any other means. Styled in the rich tradition of McIntosh audio components the MEN220 features our trademark Fiber-Optic Illuminated Black Glass Front panel and aluminum casework. Front panel buttons and control knobs bring a familiar, easy-to-use analog interface to this digital product just as a 2-line  vacuum fluorescent display reports status and aids in set-up of the MEN220. Full system control and PC link are provided via RS232 while McIntosh Data, Power Control and  IR inputs offer additional remote control flexibility. Both single-ended and balanced connections are supported; a hand-held, IR remote control is included.

The MEN220 harnesses the power of RoomPerfectTM* software, an advanced room correction algorithm that automatically creates a digital model of your listening room, called RoomKnowledge. By using data gathered from multiple locations in the room, the MEN220 corrects frequency response anomalies – revealing, perhaps for the first time, the full capabilities of your fine audio system.

 

 

EQ: A 6-Band Parametric EQ Application (that runs on any Windows PC) allows the creation of specialized Voicing Curves to suit the tastes of the user, or to solve specific issues such as refreshing inferior but still-cherished source material, or compensating for inferior formats.
