First McIntosh Integrated system
« on: December 09, 2009, 08:40:32 PM »
Weigh in guys....sacrilage?

Asking price is $7500 for this unit.
It does look like the CD player is separate, although that might be an Illusion.

Thank you clarion.
Although I bet it sounds great, I'd bet the $7500 price tag has just a bit more to do with the emblem than the sounds.
I am confident that an SL-1200 is capable of outperforming turntables of much higher expense with minor modification.

That looks pretty cool.  Though McIntosh have always seem to carry a very hefty price tag.  I have a lot less in my system and I bet it will sound just as nice.
Got Carver?

I have never heard your system T. but, knowing a little about what you have, I think your system may be a little better...
