2-channel Amplifier 2x550W@ 8 Ohms of Incredible Power!
We designed the MCX amplifiers specifically for people who are looking for the "best of both worlds" performance, between audiophile stereo music listening and explosive movie soundtracks. "Handcrafted" class A transistor circuit replaces off-the-shelf OpAmp for precise and natural sound signature.
Whether you're listening to music, playing a movie, live concert or video games, the MCX amplifier with its lightning fast dynamics and ultra-low distortion brings you to a new level of audio realism.
Taking the best bits from NuPrime's award winning products, the MCX has been developed for the multi-channel market. We understand that it is not only power that enthrals the listener, but also the accuracy of reproduction to create a realistic experience.

I’ve been wanting to upgrade my home theater setup for years and finally got the okay from my wife so I proceeded to purpose and urgency. After looking at various options, I went with Marantz AV7705 pre-pro and Nuprime-X MCX-2 (fronts), MCX-3 (center and surrounds) and MCX-4 (4 ATMOS heights).
Aamir was great to work with. Aamir had the gear shipped and I received them in just 2 days. I had about 3 weeks to enjoy and I love my setup. Everything sounds louder yet clearer. I can hear the dialogues better. Surrounds and heights have more authority, directionality, providing more immersive movie experience.
I also find myself listening to music more as well. I am not an audiophile so I can’t describe the music with all of their jargons. All I can say is that the vocals are clearer. I can hear more of the instruments. And I am getting a bigger sound stage. It sounds better as I turn up the volume so I’ve been listening at higher volumes than I ever did before. I find myself tapping my feet to music a lot and I guess that is what it’s all about.
Firstly I want to thank Aamir for putting up with my HiFi addiction! Audio gear is very personal, and finding a sweet spot is difficult. I have a home theater setup, 5.2.4. I am getting back into 2ch stereo. I am running some Paradigm Prestige 75F front stage with a Tonewinner AD5180 (summit) 5ch amplifier. It is awesome! I was always intrigued by the Nuprime MCX amplifiers. I went for the MCX2. Out of the box I was shocked. The soundstage I thought was good literally doubled. Top end had more air, detail, and a "sweetness" that I have never heard before. The mids had a new depth, clarity, and dynamics that sounded very natural and open. Bass was very powerful, very detailed, tight and has a big punch. I think that the MCX's subtle 550w/ch has something to do with that! I fired up my SVS SB4000, SB 3000 subs... Woooa!! What combo! I think another Nuprime, the MCX3 is in my near future to complete the 5 floor channels! These amplifiers are next level. Gobs of ultra clean, distortion free power that can satisfy any HiFi enthusiast. Gt this amplifier!!! Thanks again Aamir for all your help
This was a good Amp. Did not like the feature that you have to wait about 5 minutes after the Amp is powers down for it to be powered back up again. But nice Amp anyway... Highly recommended if you are going the class D route.
As an Audiophile it can be tricky finding the right amplifier for your setup,cand it can be frustrating too. I have been searching for a 2 - Channel amplifier for quite some time to power two custom built 500 watt subwoofers for my home theater
I stumbled upon Summit HiFi and spoke to Amir.about what I was looking for and the price I could afford.
Man, by the end of the conversation I was anxious to get the amplified to be delivered. I have never dealt with anyone selling electronics like him before, and this delivery would change how I would buy electronics going forward.
He dropped off the amplifier at my house and said to test it out first, I was already impressed. I quickly took rhe box to my basement and looked over the manual and the amp. After connecting, I chose a movie I watched before and selected the scene - from Kong and The Legend of Tarzan
OMG, I kid you not, I felt that roar in my chest (shivers)..
The MCX 2 was playing exactly as Amir said it would. I was impressed. For the footprint and weight, it was Mighty indeed. I couldn't believe this little amp packed such a punch I messaged him a few days after playing a few of my favorite albums and this amplifier didn't disappoint in this area either.
I'm so happy I stumbled across Amir at Summit ,HiFi. This Mighty Compact Xploder 2 (MCX 2) was reasonably priced and the most important - the service from beginning to end was A+ and so far I've purchased two other amplifiers for a 5-2-4 home theater setup.
Amir, thank you for helping to bring my dream theater to life. Keep running Summit HiFi the way you do, we Audiophiles truly appreciate it... Cheers
One's experience is subjective and obviously relative to the associated equipment used. Having tried the amplifier with several preamps and speakers, in the short time I've had it, I conclude that it's very capable - Particularly given it's size and price point! It's light, small, and produces extremely minimal heat, which are all pluses. The first thing I detected upon initial hook up was the good degree of resolution. I would say that's the forte of the amp. Yes amplifiers do affect sound signature. Dollar for dollar you'd be hard pressed to find something better. My only gripe, was the terminal (holes) are very small, not big enough to put substantial gauge wire through. Most people use banana connectors, I realize, so there are certainly ways to compensate. I actually inserted the bare (10 awg) wire in the ends of the terminals and secured them with electrical tape (for the time being).
As far as service goes I cannot say enough about Aamir! He called me several times prior to the transaction to educate and reassure me. Not being forceful or bothersome in any manner but merely extending himself gracefully. What surprised me most was the courtesy calls after the sale just to ensure everything was good. He emphasizes that he can be reached anytime and is "just a phone call away". Very professional and accommodating for someone to make them self that accessible. I appreciate his passion, enthusiasm and good nature! Thanks Aamir it was great dealing with you and I look forward to talking to talking to you again in the future. Highly recommended!
