Business seller information. Complete information. Returns policy. Look, we're talking either you know your shit and should always wait to read a review or three first , or at the very least listen to it within your system first, or you're just plain crazy buying first, or rich and have access to Fuck You money, or, perhaps, some combination?
And where's the fun in having access to Fuck You money if you don't say "Fuck You" now and then? All that aside, we're talking McIntosh Labs. Now really, is it any stretch to say that you trust McIntosh Labs to make a great product that sounds wonderful, looks incredible, and will be rock solid reliable for decades. Not a few years of operation, or five years, or ten.
Have seen many McIntosh amps that are over 30 years old still selling quite well within the second-hand market.
These are knowns. It simply is. McIntosh Labs. So with an excellent reputation, decades of consistently producing extremely high quality audio gear, how could you possibly go wrong?
Enjoy the Music. Ron loved it so much he bought the review sample. Yes, even us reviewer-types read other reviewer's reviews wow that sentence is a mouthful! Again, even us reviewer-types read other reviewer's reviews. I'll get more into that later actually I won't, that'll have to wait for the full review , yet the point is due diligence. As for these new McIntosh MC monoblocks, they improved the design over previous version, and of course it looks great.
After reading other reviews about Mc's quad balanced amps I felt, hey, why not just buy it? How bad could it really be? The Long Road Of Amplification Topology Those foolish enough to have been reading my rambling for decades know I've tried a few types of amplification topology. Big sigh Aaaaand here we go:. Dynaco and Quad amps from the s and s: Hey, it's what I grew up listening to.
Yamaha Natural Sound receiver: Because I was kicked out of the house. Also, they sure were loud VTL KT90 triode monoblocks. These were the then just-released KT90 tubes from Yugoslavia. Because soon afterwards that plant shut down and everyone scrambled to purchase KT90 tubes, I smartly also ordered two compete output tube sets as backup 32 matched KT90 output tubes total in 'backstock' for those counting.
Threshold massive Class A monoblocks on trial from local high-end store, as was trying to figure out what worked best with the Infinity four-tower IRS system, with the VTL working the uppers, Threshold for bass towers. Audio Note Ongaku made by Kondo-san himself. Hmmm, also procured that sound unheard and look how that turned out.
I sense a theme here of bat-shit audio gear crazy, yet let's keep going shall we? Wavelength Audio Cardinal monoblocks original, eventually upgraded to X-1 silver status. Still have those monoblocks here. Too much in love to part with them. If you get the chance and have the system for 8 glorious SET watts I highly recommended them.
Many only know Gordon Rankin for his digital expertise, yet his tube amps rock my world! Ok, let's hit fast-forward a bit as to why we're going on about pervious amps 'n' stuff. Then came that whole Enjoy the Music. Of the hits are the 47 Labs Gaincard, which my review seemed to spur a whole new category of manufacturers making single-chip amps with about 20 Watts output.
Also experimented with Final Labs, which used the same basic single-chip topology, yet was driven only via battery power instead of 47 Labs Power Humpty. Yet until then Taking a look back at output topologies we have pentode, triode, ultra-linear, Class A solid-state, Class AB, Class D, single and multi solid-state output device amps, single and multi output tube amps.
Amps in pretty decorative jewelry-like boxes made of exotic wood. Utilitarian amps that look like ugly black boxes. Amps that weight only a single pound or so to those weighing well over 80 lbs each.
Cute little bugger too! My point being is, how could I have never reviewed, let alone owned, a McIntosh Labs product? What type of world am I leaving for Keith Richards? Look, there's only one me and am at merely a very tiny small part within the world of high-end audio. So when it comes to McIntosh Labs I always wanted to get around to it one day. Kinda like how we guys like to say about, you know, cleaning the garage or repainting the bathroom, I'll get around to it Finally: McIntosh Labs MC Since never having owned a quad balanced solid-state amplifier, or a McIntosh amp for that matter, the audio Gods smiled down upon me and were kind enough to allow me to buy a pair of MC monoblocks.
Sometimes in life the sun shines as you smile, and the world smiles back kindly. Obviously far too many Watts for the Dunlavy speakers, yet having an abundance of headroom is one of the keys to a life-like audio system imho.
