McIntosh Mx130 question


Hi All,
I'm coming into a McIntosh MX 130 unit, with a McIntosh six channel amp. I've heard it's excellent (it will be my first McIntosh piece), but it has no HDMI capabilities. I'd love to use this with my new plasma TV and Blu-ray player. How can I get the most out of this without HDMI in or outputs?

Can I simply run the HDMI directly from my Blu-ray player to the TV and use conventional interconnects for the sound from the McIntosh to my speakers?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks so far all! I think it's an MC7108. Don't know anything about it, but it's my girlfriend's, so it's part of a package deal (the girl and the stereo!)

any ideas or alternative recommendations?
The 7108 is a 8 channel amp. That would give you an opportunity to bi-amp your front speakers! Or you can bridge that ampo as well for more power.
Here is a link to the manual http://www.berners.ch/McIntosh/Downloads/MC7108_own.pdf
also in case you need one for the MX130

enjoy.
Glad to help, I am a long time Mc owner/lover. Hopefully you will learn to love their sound. Enjoy!
You never really own McIntosh. You are just holding it for the next generation to own
