Hi yyman23, took a look at your system, very nice. No, I would not trade the MC275 for the MC402. The 402 will sound a little better than the 352, however it will not sound like the 275. Now, I'll amend my response to your other post. You should have at least 3 dedicated lines installed, 1 digital, 1 for amps, and 1 for the rest of the analog. Working 25 years in the high end audio industry, I have experienced more than most in this hobby. I use dedicated lines and have recommended many with nice systems to have them installed. Everyone that did always made the comment that they wish they had done it sooner and it was an upgrade well worth the expense. Initially you will notice the difference in bass, but further listening will reveal improvements in every aspect of the sound. Dedicated lines should be done before any other changes in your system.
Thank you, I'm leaning towards not making the trade, and just keeping my current setup. My MC275 is in beautiful condition and I'm completely in love with the mids and highs. tls49 - That's a great recommendation, and I'll look into it though I'm not sure it doable at my house. No crawl space/attic to run new wiring. I'll experiment more this weekend.
Yes, keep your system, SS for everyday and Tube for special occasion.
IMHO, frequently resort to entertaining upgrades that may not necessarily "improve" the system's performance, but do create detectable changes in the performance. However these artifact styled "improvements" become boring after a while, because they add the same accent to all music, making it sonically one-dimensional.
I did upgrade from one MC275 to two and now MC601 Mono Block, I kept both amp to enjoy the experience of their difference.
I have a MC275 GG commerative edition in storage, I have never played it as of yet. I am interested to know if I am missing anything by not using it. I have an MC2102 that I used to use more often but my understanding was that the 2102 was maybe a little step ahead of the 275? I regularly use my 501's. I have been thinking about selling either the MC2012 or the MC275 but for some reason I haven't been able to been able to part with them!
