Mcintoshâ Introduces Powerful New Floor -Standing Luxury Tower Loudspeaker

High Performance Model XR200 Is Engineered from the Ground Up To Ensure Faithful, Pure and Rich Sound Reproduction

LAS VEGAS, NV, January 8, 2009 - McIntosh Laboratory, a global leader in home entertainment systems that has defined the highest quality in sound reproduction for 60 years, recently announced the introduction of its new ultra -luxury floor -standing tower loudspeaker, the XR200 (SRP: $8,000 each). Scheduled for availability in February, the new XR200 gives today's most discriminating audio consumers an opportunity to experience astoundingly pure, rich sound reproduction that faithfully mirrors every nuance and subtlety of musical performance.

The XR200 tower features a 51" tall, three -way floor -standing design that combines the outstanding imaging characteristics of point source systems with the seemingly limitless dynamics normally associated with a line source. An ultra -sophisticated 19 -element midrange/tweeter array (a proprietary McIntosh design and the product of decades of multiple -driver -array design experience), offers extraordinary clarity, precision image localization and depth. Three custom -made 8" bass drivers, each with a 12 -pound magnet structure, possess the speed and power to convey the most complicated transients and deliver crushing SPL's. The XR200 utilizes a single tuned port, which exits organ -pipe -style at the top of the enclosure. The enclosure is finished in a luxurious gloss black. Frequency response of the XR200 is 20 Hz to 45 kHz.
