    Dang, that thing was pretty! A $6500 amp is not in the cards, nor would I recommend anyone buying an amp based on looks. But even if it sounds like ass, which I doubt, you could just keep it around to look at. :)

    That is one of the great things about the Fest. You just get to enjoy so much new gear that you would otherwise not see.

    I loved it, but that kind of scratch probably won't be in the cards for a few more years.

    You know those LED lights they put under the tubes and the lit name badges on the speakers turn me off something fierce. Too much show and not enough go as the hot rodeos used to say. I don't want an audio company wasting a dime on that kind of crap. I'd rather they leave that stuff out and pocket a few more bucks. Like neon under a car; always poor taste.

    That's the thing. There are plenty of regular ones around. The high bling version is there if you want it. I thought it was fun. If I had the money, I'd spend the extra bucks.

    That is a limited production unit, so it is something that is not going into every home. For more "barebones" and no fancy lights, the MC275-MKV is it.

    For the speakers lighting up, personally I love it. It is just a simple 1/8" trigger input.... and if you don't like it, don't plug it in. We have been playing our XR100's here all week...and having fun!

    Not everyone will love every product, we all know that. That is part of what keeps this business moving forward. To be in a business where we get to listen to music on so many amazing systems every day...that is nothing short of great!

    Great show guys, thanks for stopping in.

    :drool: It was gorgeous, and I certainly can't swing that kinda coin currently. Hell, I was stretching it thin trying (in vain):tears: to buy one of those McIntosh Tervis Tumblers from Ryan. Here's a couple of pics I took. One without flash trying to fully capture the glow, and another with flash that picks up all the gold trim.

    Hey Hatrack, nice to see some disc golfers on here! I've got full-range folded rear horns in the clubhouse (for my cousin's course across the street from me) and no golfers out here ever know what they are...

    IIRC the rectangular holes in the plates denote a Russian tube.!?

    It is the color of the money you are paying McIntosh for the July privilege of viewing those leds.

    Original 275 commemorative (gold version with numbered plate) owner here. Yup, pure eye candy...without the silly green LED's.
