McIntosh’s MR89 features exclusive McIntosh radio frequency (RF) circuitry that can reportedly receive both strong FM signals from nearby stations, while apparently also being able to tune in weaker FM signals with little to no noise
The MR89’s monitor can display detailed signal, multipath and noise levels (from the incoming radio signal) to help fine-tune optimal placement of the AM or FM antenna.
An RAA2 AM antenna is included.
You get stereo blending with a ‘High Blend’ option, a ‘Softmute’ feature to reduce the audio output of lower-quality station inputs, plus a ‘Highcut’ function to reduce high-frequency audio content.
Further features include FM Radio Broadcast Data System (RBDS) support to display station and music information, an adjustable seek function, plus the ability to store 20+ preset stations for both AM/FM.
The MR89 holds balanced and unbalanced analogue outputs, plus digital coaxial and optical outputs.
