McIntosh MB25

McIntosh MB25

Streaming music directly from a smartphone to a home audio system via Bluetooth® offers unparalleled convenience; however, many Bluetooth-enabled sound systems lack the premium sound quality necessary to truly honour a prized music collection.

With the McIntosh MB25 Bluetooth transceiver, you can now seamlessly integrate Bluetooth streaming capabilities into virtually any high-end home audio system from any era, whether it includes McIntosh products or not.

The MB25 elevates the listening experience, transforming any audio system into a versatile home entertainment hub.

With the ability to function as either a transceiver or transmitter, the MB25 is compatible not only with Bluetooth streaming devices, but also physical media sources such as CDs and vinyl records – making it a great fit for any and all audiophiles, whether their current set-up includes a vintage analogue stereo or a new digital system.

Designed as a compact, standalone unit with a relatively small footprint, the MB25 requires no third-party apps for operation, ensuring a hassle-free experience.

It boasts Class 1 Bluetooth technology, delivering unparalleled connectivity with audio equipment lacking Bluetooth compatibility.

With a transmission range of up to 150 feet (45.7 metres)1 and enhanced by an external antenna, the MB25 guarantees optimal performance for both transmitting and receiving audio signals.

The successor to the popular MB20, the MB25 retains all MB20’s features while introducing enhancements for an elevated user experience.

Notable upgrades include:

  • An illuminated front glass panel that provides insights into audio signal rates and connection types.
  • Flexibility to select the desired input in transmit mode, giving users greater control over their audio experience.
