This new McIntosh integrated looks like a winner

For $6500 you get what looks to be a really nice unit. Tube pre section, blue Meters and tone controls. I’m looking forward tovreviews

It's new. I believe dealers are now taking orders. I think it's making its big debut at RMAF and shipping late September. The lower level MA252 got good reviews. I'm hoping this one sounds even better.

I would actually consider selling my current PS Audio tube BHK pre amp and go with something like this. 
This looks like a very interesting pre/amp/phono that might fit the needs of a lot of people, would love to hear it or at least read a review. I hope that the phone stage is up to par. Never thought of myself as a Mac fan but this could change my mind. Enjoy the music
