FS: McINTOSH MX151 - 7.1 AV Control Centre

Recommended Posts

Item: McIntosh MX151 AV Control Centre
Location: Sydney
Price: $4,900
Item Condition: Used, flawless
Reason for selling: Upgraded to the MX160
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
Extra Info: Served as my AV Control/processor for several years - it never once let me down. The MX151 is a software upgraded version from the MX150, to include HDMI 3D passthrough. It's essentially the same as the MX160 ($24,000) but doesn't do ATMOS, 4K etc., but pretty much everything else. Still have original packaging as well as manuals and all gear associated with Mac's stunning Room Perfect implementation.

 

While McIntosh refers to the MX150 as a control center, it is first and foremost an A/V processor. The look of the MX150 is classic McIntosh with a glass front panel and symmetric controls surrounding a bright blue fluorescent display. The MX150 is a great-looking piece of equipment and it is especially beautiful in a darkened room. The glass panel is illuminated by LEDs paired with fiber optic light diffusers. All of the controls on the front panel have a very precise feel and the volume knob is wonderfully smooth in operation. Under the display are a series of yellow indicators which show the channels received in the input audio stream and the channels that are output from the processor. The other four indicators under the display show whether the MX150 is receiving an analog signal, a digital signal, a high resolution audio signal, and whether the RoomPerfect system is engaged.

The rear panel of the MX150 supports an amazing array of components and connections. The processor supports two zones and references to “ZA” and “ZB” refer to Zone A and Zone B, respectively. The MX150 receiver supports five HDMI 1.3 inputs and one HDMI 1.3 output. This is enough to handle a satellite or cable receiver / DVR, a Blu-ray player and a gaming system with two inputs to spare. The MX150 supports a full complement of analog audio and video inputs with five component video inputs, two composite video inputs, two S-Video inputs, 9 sets of stereo analog RCA inputs including one with a precision phono preamplifier, and a 7.1 multi-channel input. The MX150 supports nine digital audio inputs (four coaxial, four optical and one balanced AES/EBU). For balanced analog audio, the MX150 includes two sets of XLR stereo inputs.

      Item: Audience Au24SE USB & AES - 75cm ea
      Location: Perth 6152
      Price: $700 each
      Item Condition: Very good
      Reason for selling: Not in use, need money
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal
      Extra Info:
      Some of the very finest around.
       
      "Frankly, there’s nothing to fault ...  The Audience cable seemingly does it all; it is convincingly superior in every sonic criterion ...  if you want a no-compromise USB cable, look no further."
       
      http://audience-av.com/cables/au24se/
      http://audience-av.com/au24-se-cable-reviews/
       
      For context, the Au24se USB is virtually 2nd best Audience USB, after FrontRow (no SX model).
       
      The AES also comes in SX and FrontRow at US$1200 and US$1700 respectively.
