The MP100 is the first dedicated phono preamplifier from McIntosh and is designed to help both new and experienced vinyl lovers get the most fidelity, performance and – most importantly – enjoyment from their albums.

 

Like all McIntosh products, the MP100 is packed with features designed specifically for the vinyl lover including: Moving Coil and Moving Magnet inputs; Moving Coil and Moving Magnet adjustable loading (6 settings each); balanced and unbalanced analog outputs; optical, coax and USB digital outputs; and a Mono switch for when playing mono records to decrease noise and play the signal correctly. For pure analog use, the digital outputs can be completely disabled and powered down.

 

There are many ways to integrate the MP100 into your audio system. If you’re new to vinyl and just building your system, it can become the main part of your setup. Or if you already have a system with an older preamp you don’t want to part with, the MP100 is an excellent way to add modern phono features. If you’ve got a home theater system and would like to add a turntable, the MP100 is an easy way to add full phono preamp capabilities without having to get a full-sized stereo preamp that would undoubtedly duplicate many of your home theater processor’s features.

 

While spinning vinyl on a turntable is a great and unique way to enjoy music, there’s no denying the convenience of having digital versions of the albums. When used with a properly configured conversion program, the MP100 can “rip” the records to a computer via USB to produce high quality digital files. The digital outputs are fixed at 24-bit/96kHz to capture the full dynamic range of a record while optimizing digital file size. If an album has a very loud section, the clipping indicator will alert you so you can lower the digital output in order to produce a distortion-free recording.

 

Compact in size at just 3” tall, it has many ageless McIntosh design cues. It shares the same 11.5” narrow chassis design as the MXA80 Integrated Audio System, MHA150 Headphone Amplifier and MB50 Streaming Audio Player to help build a cohesive system. It can also easily be added to a system comprised of standard, wider width chassis.

      I bought this in late 2015 for approx $2300. Used mainly for media file storage and back up for my PC. I never ran this 24/7 only when it was being used.
       
       
      This has 6GB RAM as I installed an extra 4GB module when purchased. It is running the latest version of Synology Disk Station Manager (DSM).
       
      NOTE: Synology NAS using the Intel Atom C2538 Quad Core 2.4GHz had a processor bug which caused the DSXX15+ models to fail after a few thousand hours. This unit has been repaired and runs perfectly (100 ohm resistor added).
       
      Datasheet:

      Price:
      Diskless: $1200 (NAS only)
      NAS + 3 x WD Red Pro 4TB hard drives (in RAID 5):  $1600  
       
      NOTE: The 3 x WD Red Pro discs (7200rpm) have approx 8000, 6000 and 4000 hrs usage respectively. In RAID 5 one disc can fail and no data is lost. In RAID 5 there is approx 7,300 GB of usable storage.
       

       
      Shipping/Pickup:
      I would prefer pickup (I'm in Bayside, MEL), however I do have the original shipping box. Shipping and insurance to be paid by buyer (PayPal).

      The Zesto Audio Andros 1.2 Phonostage is a wonderful sounding piece of kit. It is totally quiet, transparent and just sweeps you into the music. I cannot over-emphasise how quiet it is, more so than some much lauded solid-state amps that I've tried to unsuccessfully pair with some very low output MC cartridges (eg. Lyra SL variants, Gold Note Tuscany etc.) It very much allows the delicacy, dynamics and shimmer of these top flight cartridges to shine through. 
      Excellent reviews on it can be found here: http://positive-feedback.com/reviews/hardware-reviews/zesto-andros/ and here: http://www.hifiplus.com/articles/zesto-audio-andros-12-vacuum-tube-phonostage-preamplifier/
       
      This was purchased from the Australian distributor, and is complete with manuals, ground wire, power cable and cotton gloves (for handling the tubes).
       
      I have been in two minds about selling this, as it is a wonderful phono stage, which I no longer need for now.
