I'd REALLY like to hear your take on this John, will you expound? In transparency, I'd especially like your brutally honest opinion on my MC 7300. Go ahead... I've lashed myself to the mast in willing anticipation to the storm you might unleash. Note: I'm the 2nd owner and it was serviced to factory spec.Hardly.
I would agree Bryston is probably a modern equivalent for good performance and high build quality without the bling.If I were to spend that much money on an amp again I would buy a Bryston, but mostly because I don't like the McIntosh "bling factor".
As mentioned before, the value is in the perception. Technically they are basically all at the same plane.
No one has sent one in. They are big heavy amplifiers and would cost quite a bit to ship. Amir will buy things once and awhile for testing, but they are also expensive, so unless he was wanting one for himself it wouldn't make much sense.Is there a reason why there is no review of McIntosh gear on this site yet?
Yeah, would be fun to see!I would also love to see measurements for Mac gear, don't get me wrong. If only because they claim that they are an engineering-oriented manufacturer.
Stereophile tested one here. It looks quite good. You can spend less and get SOTA, but if you have the money and like the look of a Mc, why not?Yeah, would be fun to see!
Maybe next year there can a public funding (lottery) for a device majority would like to test and there after place it in a lottery for the participants.
But jokes aside, I've only heard so much about McIntosh but never experienced it in real life.
