This is for the audiophile who wants a “centralized” hub to bring all his/her streaming device through a unified device. Just plug the Ethernet cable from your router and download the McIntosh App on your smart phone or iPad and you can be listening to the hundreds of music channels online. If you want to build a music library, the MB100 can do that too with its 1TB hard drive onboard. Just go to Amazon’s Cloud Drive or Apple’s iCloud, purchase your music and it will be backup into your hard drive. A display panel is needed to view the “pages” inside the MB100.
This unit was a former demo piece in a McIntosh showroom so there is some minor scuff marks from use. Overall, it still looks very good and we have the original double boxes, remote and manual.
