The MX122 A/V Processor can serve as the brain centre for an advanced home theatre system for years to come. It features many of the latest breakthroughs in surround sound and object-based 3D audio such as Dolby® Atmos, and will be upgradable to support DTS:X™ and Auro-3D®. 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 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. A wide assortment of inputs and outputs will let you connect your current and future entertainment sources.

Besides enjoying your favourite movies and TV shows, the MX122 is also great for listening to analog or digital 2-channel music in either stereo or upconverted to surround sound and is compatible with a variety of high resolution digital music formats up to 24-bit/192kHz.
