Has anyone actually read a review of this amp?
I can't find one anywhere.
Failing that, has anyone auditioned it?
I love the look of it.
Green is good.
Big hit on St Paddy's Day for sure

Thanks GWN.
Decent and fair review.

I really love the look of this machine as well.

Gerhard,

Did you wind up buying one or auditioning one somewhat?

Just saw it in the front entranceway to Bay Bloor Radio in Toronto and it sounded and looked amazing to me.

Arrived on Wednesday. This thing is everything I hoped for. Detailed, sweet and powerful. Being as beautiful as this is an extra bonus. Just love it.

Does it sound different at all from day one to now?

BTW, I hate you.

Just saying.

Sounds better? Can’t really say but I’m sure loving it more. The Kef ls50 seems to be a nice match. Warm but not at all clinical sounding. I’ve also got the Yamaha as-2100 . Hard to say which one I like better. :D

Just call bay bloor radio and ask them now much whatever Mac gear you want costs. Pretty sure most of their product range is $5k+ CAD. I know the c2600 preamp is $8500+tax and the c1100 is over $11k + tax.

Here we are September 10 and I’m still loving the McIntosh. I’ve been listening with Harbeth Super 5 Plus. Today they sound so dang good. 8) Some days it all comes together.
