McIntosh releases audiophile quality AirPlay-enabled McAire

High-end audio maker McIntosh has introduced the McAire, its first AirPlay-enabled personal audio system, for the audiophile price of $3000. As with other AirPlay-certified systems, it allows users to wirelessly stream music via a Wi-Fi network from a Mac or PC based iTunes library. Users can also use the system to wirelessly stream music directly from their iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, while older Apple devices can also be connected over USB.

The integrated audio system in the McIntosh McAire utilizes two 4-inch Woofers (dual acoustic ports), two 2-inch inverted dome midranges and two -inch dome tweeters. The frequency response is 60Hz to 45kHz with a crossover frequency of 250Hz and 4,500 Hz, which is a significantly wider dynamic range than the audio capabilities of Apple's mobile devices.

The McAire weighs in at 31 pounds and supports Ethernet (10/100 Base-T) wired or WLAN connectivity as well as the vaunted AirPlay technology. In addition to USB input for older Apple devices, it also includes stereo RCA auxilliary ports with 200 mVRMS nominal (max) input sensitivity and a maximum input signal of 2.2 VRMS. For those with deep wallets, the McAire can be synced with multiple units for wireless streaming throughout a home.
