Technically, the Magnat MC 400 is an all-in-one device that takes care of everything from being the source to processing the signal to amplification; all while promising high quality. According to Magnat, the amplifier section features power amps with a continuous output of 60 and a peak output of 100 watts per channel. Digital signals are converted in resolutions up to 24 bits and 192 kHz.
On the input side, the receiver offers plenty of digital and analog connections: In addition to RCA, it has a phono MM input on the back, as well as a coaxial and an optical digital input and HDMI. In addition to a headphone output, the front also carries a 3.5 mm jack input and USB. The Magnat MC 400 also receives music via Bluetooth aptX-HD or Ethernet/Wi-Fi – including Spotify Connect and TuneIn Internet radio. Radio via FM or DAB+ can also be found in the MC 400, just like a slot-in CD drive.
Magnat's MC 400 is controlled either via the display on the front or the remote control; Magnat also offers its own iOS and Android app for control, which is supposed to ensure access to various streaming services, as well as enable multi-room playback.
The network-CD-DAB+/FM receiver Magnat MC 400 is said to be available immediately for about €1500 in Germany.
