Night time listening.. Pure bliss
not that i need to, i am going to make a bid on this ....
I have a variety of McIntosh items that I enjoy:
MC 402 Power Amp
C 41 Pre Amp
MR 78 Tuner
MC 202 Power Amp
C 15 Pre Amp
MC 2255 Power Amp
C33 Pre-Amp (In Disrepair)
I have a MR-74, C-28, and MC-2105 in one system and a C-22 preamp waiting for MC-7300 amp to arrive next week in my other system.
Here's my minimalist system. MA5200, MB50 Music Streamer, SONOS Connect (Wyred4Sound upgraded), all Wire World cables (speaker, interconnects, power), REL T9/I sub (with Arrow wireless system), and Bowers & Wilkins 805 D3 speakers. That's a ThermalRest camping mat in the corner. I'm embarrassed to show you my left and right wall treatments (hint: took them out of my teardrop camper).
Thanks. That's was actually my first piece of Mac gear. It was given to me and I had it set up with my H/K setup for years. I can't tell you how much money I turned down. I just couldn't bring mys
This is my current setup! McIntosh MC1.2KW, MC75 60th Edition, C500T, Olive 06HD, MEN220, MT10, MCD/MDA1K, MVP901, MPC1500, PS Audio P10, W4S Sonos, B&W 802 Diamond, Sony 4K 80' LED, IPad 3, Silver Eclipse 7 Speaker Cable and IC, Shakti Stones.
That'll do donkey, that'll do . . .
The latest incarnation of my system. Recently replaced the Tannoy Canterbury GR with the Westminster Royal GR. More of a great thing! A ridiculously good mating with the McIntosh tube gear!!
Does it count that I listened to this ht system today? I have never heard home theater done right until today
No. But, you should start a new thread and tell us all about that experience, where it is, etc.
I have yet one more Mac dealer I want to visit possibly tomorrow that's about an hour away and then I just may do that.
Well.. got my 70's gear hooked up and together in a system for the first time since 1989, and now connected to the XR6s with the MQ104 in the loop (next photo).
Then got the Thiels in the act. MQ104 is sitting on top or cabinet (upper right).
These dates describe my Mid, Jr, and High school years except for the speakers, college years.

Even got the 8-Track Deck from HS days connected, with modified track-change lever switch.
The lower trim strip detached... it's around somewhere.
Should have seen the look om my buddies' face when I cranked up the volume. Priceless!
And then he asked "how many watts is that?" Lol
I've seen Greg's gear. Its as if these pieces came fresh out of the factory boxes (which he still has)! Very well maintained and cared for gear. Worthy of Mint quality for sure.
I am just starting my gear build. I have a pair if MC30s and a MC40 powering Klipsch La Scalas. I thought I would buy both, listen to the differences and decide which I would keep. I find I like both!
I'm looking for a 2 channel amp to drive B&W 802's... I'm happy to buy used. Suggestions?
