It features many of the latest breakthroughs in surround sound and object-based 3D audio: Dolby Atmos is supported, and with a free firmware updateboth DTS:X and Auro-3D are also supported. Besides 3D audio, existing formats like Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio and others still work so you can keep enjoying your existing movie collection. Regardless the format, all audio will be processed to legendary McIntosh sound quality and performance standards. The MX122 is also fully compatible with modern 4K Ultra HD video sources and can upscale lower resolutions to 4K Ultra HD for the best possible picture quality.


The enjoyment the MX122 delivers does not have to be confined to just one room; you can create 2 additional zones in your house and have the MX122 send select audio and/or video to them.

I "never appreciated the sound quality of my Klipsch THX speakers as much as I did with the McIntosh [MX122 andMC205] in place? Listening to DVD or Blu-ray movies proved to be a very impressive experience." - Son et Image Magazine

You can connect to your cloud-based or online digital music with either the wired or wireless network connections. DSD64 files can be played from flash drives or over your network. Bluetooth and AirPlay connectivity allows for easy streaming from your mobile devices. Interfaces to popular streaming services1 including Pandora, SiriusXM and Spotify are included while vTuner lets you connect to 1,000s of internet radio stations ? including McIntosh Music. Audyssey MultEQ XT32 will calibrate the MX122 to your home theater's unique acoustical properties, letting it deliver the clearest and most balanced ? yet still earth shattering ? sound possible.
