The folks over at McIntosh have a trio of new products on the way, all designed to play nicely together or to integrate into your current system. It kicks off with the MX121 AV Control Center, which includes 3D support, upconversion to 1080p, and a variety of audio features including Apple AirPlay. You can pick it up at $6,000.
The MVP891 universal Blu-ray player comes in at $5,500 handles more than just Blu-rays – you can play back your DVD Audio and SACD discs and enjoy impressive audio quality and 7.1 channel analog outs. The one thing it doesn't do, strangely enough, is 3D. Finally, McIntosh revealed the MC8027 power amplifier which runs $6,000 and offers 7.1 channels of audio at 200 watts per channel. If you're a 5.1 channel kind of person, you can use those extra two for another zone.
