www.DataSheetT4Uhe.colimghtning flash with arrowhead, within an equilateral
triangle, is intended to alert the user to the presence of
uninsulated “dangerous voltage” within the product’s
enclosure that may be of sufficient magnitude to consti-
tute a risk of electric shock to persons.
Attention: pour pevenir les chocs elecriques pas
utiliser cette fiche polarisee avec un prolongateur,
une prise de courant ou un autre sortie de courant,
sauf si les lames peuvent etre inserees afond ans en
laisser aucune partie a decouvert.
7. For added protection for this product during a lightning
storm, or when it is left unattended and unused for long
periods of time, unplug it from the wall outlet and dis-
connect the antenna or cable system. This will prevent
damage to the product due to lightning or power line
surges.
8. Do not use attachments not recommended in this
owner’s manual as they may cause hazards.
AVIS RISQUE DE CHOC -
NE PAS OUVRIR.
The exclamation point within an equilateral triangle is
intended to alert the user to the presence of important
operating and maintenance (servicing) instructions in
the literature accompanying the appliance.
NO USER-SERVICEABLE
PARTS INSIDE. REFER
SERVICING TO
QUALIFIED PERSONNEL
To prevent the risk of electric shock, do not remove
cover (or back). No user serviceable parts inside. Refer
servicing to qualified personnel.
General:
1. Read all the safety and operating instructions, contained
in this owner’s manual, before operating this equipment.
2. Retain this owner’s manual for future reference about
safety and operating instructions.
3. Adhere to all warnings and operating instructions.
4. Follow all operating and use instructions.
5. Warning: To reduce risk of fire or electrical shock,
do not expose this equipment to rain or moisture.
This unit is capable of producing high sound pressure
levels. Continued exposure to high sound pressure
levels can cause permanent hearing impairment or
loss. User caution is advised and ear protection is
recommended when playing at high volumes.
6. Caution: to prevent electrical shock do not use this
(polarized) plug with an extension cord, receptacle
or other outlet unless the blades can be fully inserted
to prevent blade exposure.
Installation:
9. Locate the equipment for proper ventilation. For ex-
ample, the equipment should not be placed on a bed,
sofa, rug, or similar surface that may block ventilation
openings; or, placed in a built-in installation, such as a
bookcase or cabinet, that may impede the flow of air
through the ventilation openings.
10. Locate the equipment away from heat sources such as
radiators, heat registers, stoves, or other appliance (in-
cluding amplifiers) that produce heat.
11. Mount the equipment in a wall or cabinet only as de-
scribed in this owner’s manual
12. Do not use this equipment near water; for example,
near a bathtub, washbowl, kitchen sink, laundry tub, in
a wet basement or near a swimming pool, etc.
13. Do not place this product on an unstable cart, stand,
tripod, bracket, or table. The equipment may fall, caus-
ing serious injury to a person, and serious damage to
the product.
Connection:
14. Connect this equipment only to the type of AC power
source as marked on the unit.
15. Route AC power cords so that they are not likely to be
walked on or pinched by items placed upon or against
them, paying particular attention to cords at plugs, con-
venience receptacles, and the point where they exit from
the instrument.
16. Do not defeat the inherent design features of the polar-
ized plug. Non-polarized line cord adapters will defeat
the safety provided by the polarized AC plug. If the
plug should fail to fit, contact your electrician to re-
place your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety pur-
pose of the grounding-type plug.

Introduction
Now you can take advantage of traditional McIntosh stan-
dards of excellence in the MC162 power amplifier. Two
160 watt high current output channels will drive any high
quality loudspeaker system to its ultimate performance.
The MC162 reproduction is sonically transparent and abso-
lutely accurate. The McIntosh Sound is “The Sound of the
Music Itself.”
Performance Features
· Power Output
The MC162 consists of two separate power amplifier chan-
nels, each capable of 160 watts into 4ohm speakers with
less than 0.005% distortion. The two channels can be com-
bined into a single channel with 500 watts at 4 ohms or 320
watts at 8 ohms.
· High Current Output
A peak output current of 25 amperes per channel ensures
that the MC162 will successfully drive high quality loud-
speakers such as McIntosh for a truly exciting sound expe-
rience.
· Power Guard
Both channels include the patented McIntosh Power Guard
circuit that prevents the amplifier from being overdriven
into clipping with its harsh distorted sound that can also
damage your valuable loudspeakers.
· Sentry Monitor
McIntosh Sentry Monitor power output stage protection
circuits are present on both channels to ensure the MC162
will have a long and trouble free operating life.
· Thermal Protection
Built-in thermal protection circuits guard against overheat-
ing which could shorten the normal long life expectancy of
your McIntosh power amplifier.
· Illuminated Power Meters
The illuminated power output watt meters on the MC162
are peak responding, and indicate the power output of the
amplifier. The Peak Hold Mode allows the meters to tem-
porarily stay at the highest power output and then slowly
decay.
