“The Wi-Fi stereo of the gods” – Rolling Stone

“Suffice it to say the McAire really rocks… This thing fills the room with sound!” – Tone Audio

Featuring two 4” woofers, two 2” midranges and two ¾” tweeters, the McAire can breathe new life into your digital library; depending on your previous iTunes playback device, the McAire may be like hearing your music again for the first time. To meet your room aesthetics or personal preference, the speaker grilles are easily removed to expose the midranges and tweeters.

“…the most impressive aspect of the McAire is the way, like any good sound system, it plays back tracks the way they were recorded and meant to sound… So far, it’s the best all-in-one, out-of-the-box audiophile experience for iTunes we’ve tried.” – Men’s Journal

“Compact music docks are rarely used for anything but background music, but the McIntosh McAire has the power and precision to take center stage.” – Robb Report

USB docking is available for all day playback and charging, with song selection and volume handled by the included remote control. Computers, TVs and other sources may be quickly connected for full range, high fidelity sound.

The McAire “will blow the socks off any iPod dock we’ve ever tested” – Crafted

The McAire’s space saving design and room filling sound makes this system versatile enough to accommodate the audio needs of any room in your home. Contact your local dealer to learn more.
