The circuit design has been revamped from the popular MC-100B. It retains the dual mono design, two independent amplifiers sharing one chassis and one power switch. It has been given premium capacitors and other audiophile components. The sound is now warmer but yet more resolving. A major feature addition is the onboard Bluetooth 4.0 receiver.
Yet another key improvement is the addition of a bias meter, making bias adjustments very easy. One just needs to push a button for the tube to be checked and the meter will display if the bias is in an acceptable band. Using the included screw driver, one can easier adjust the needle to the middle and voila, you are done! One no longer needs to use a multi-meter and access the test points to adjust bias but that option remains. Other features that have been retained from MC-100B include selectable Ultra-Linear and Triode modes and a dedicated power amp mode, lowering its input sensitivity to be driven by a preamp in addition to a full function remote.

We are fellow audiophiles who look for cost effective upgrades to today's thin, shrill digital sounds from mass market gadgets. We look for products that give that smooth, open, "you are there" sound without having to pay a hefty price for esoteric products that might be more about hype than substance.
