McIntosh: Made in the U.S.A.

This video demonstrates McIntosh: Made in the USA Video. 

McIntosh has made about a million pieces of equipment since 1949. They estimate that three-quarters of that gear is still in use. McIntosh products are so coveted by collectors, they often re-sold, after decades, for five or six times their original sale price.

Focused on the long haul, the company has long shunned publicity aimed at short-term gain. For decades, they refused to advertise. They wouldn't even submit equipment for review.

Not that there was much to worry about. Rolling Stone called their latest product, the McAir, "the WiFi stereo of the gods." And at $3,000, it's by no means cheap but their price point is line with their philosophy: spend more on the good, hear less of the bad
