I was disappointed that they didn't spend more time. But that is the way How It's Made does things. They do a good job with the time they dedicate to the subject, but I would have liked to see more of the assembly process. I think that McIntosh does so much in house is unique and makes their products special. Not to be misunderstood, I did enjoy it very much, but was left with a thirst for more. Miner42, I do have that tour on my bucket list, but it is a long trip and it may never happen. Maybe McIntosh will someday release some videos on YouTube.
Watched it on dvr. It made me want to buy a McIntosh tube amplifier for sure. I would never drop the cash for one of those however, already spent way to much over the years in the pursuit of a good sounding music system. The segment was so short it was an appetizer. Really adds to the respect of McIntosh for their tube amps.
I think the LEDs are there for fun mostly. I learned from the show that you should keep your fingers away from the metal bending machine, and keep your nails in presentable shape for closeups. They had to pick McIntosh for the show as otherwise it could be disturbing to see 13 year old Chinese children building things, although they do a great job.
