Description

The McIntosh MT5 Precision Turntable is a complete turntable package that is more than the sum of its parts. Engineered to exacting McIntosh standards, each piece contributes to deliver a superb performance.

The MT5 comes equipped with a high-performance platter and motor drive assembly, precision tonearm, and a high output moving coil cartridge that is also compatible with moving magnet inputs. The illuminated, magnetically suspended platter produces an inviting glow that’s sure to be a conversation starter among friends and guests alike.

The MT5 is factory adjusted for perfect playback. Tracking force, anti-skate force, cartridge overhang, and arm height are all preset for maximum performance. Advanced magnetic platter bearings and a precise belt drive motor spin records with absolute stability and quiet, assuring a pleasurable vinyl listening experience. The custom tone arm and matching moving coil cartridge track records with minimum friction using magnetic antiskate and horizontal, tone-arm bearings. While the construction of the MT5 is meticulous, the setup is simple. In a few easy steps, you’ll be ready to enjoy your favorite vinyl recordings.

While maintaining complementary McIntosh styling, the MT5 takes full advantage of the chassis materials used to suppress noise, resonance, and coloration so the only sound produced is that which is on your records. A clear, form-fitting dust cover is included to protect the MT5’s moving parts, along with your valued records. The MT5 turntable is compatible with any McIntosh stereo preamplifier or phono preamplifier and is a great piece to complete your two-channel stereo system. Contact your local dealer to learn more.
