I mean -- it's not nothing. It's a box. And a light. And some sort of power supply. And screws and stuff.At least Tone Audio calls them out. $1500 for absolutely nothing. McIntosh has gone so far downhill it will be impossible to recover.
The first hifi system I experienced was comprised of McIntosh components, so I've been a fan for about 50 years. I've owned my fair share of Mc gear over the years, and love my MC275. I kept my mouth shut when the McIntosh people published press photos with turntables on the same shelves as...www.tonepublications.com
Pretty attractive profit margin, I would think, but not infinite.
Oh, based on the photos, it looks like it can do something.
Oh, and why is it the LB200? (EDIT: ne'er mind, I see now it's the replacement for the LB100). I do hope that Mac'll still provide support to LB100 owners! It'd be a real disappointment to have an LB100 and not be able to repair it, or maybe bring it up to the LB200's lofty spec! Progress marches forward, you know?
OK, OK -- I'll stop now...
