Disappointing On Mcintosh......help
Just listened again to a Mac 462 connected to a pair of Sonus fabers. In a post above someone mentioned to be aware of cables, and I second that. We tried 3 different speaker cables and the worst pair caused the combination to sound muted, the Nor...

Recommendation for an audiophile speaker cord that is not "bright"?
I recently audition some amps and speakers. Nordost Frey 2 speaker cables sounded bright with a major brand SS amp. We switched to Luna and the brightness disappeared.  Switching to another ss amp and the Frey 2 speaker cables sounded better than ...

Stereo5 right on the money. I’ve never auditioned a Mac before now, and what a revelation. They have detail without being clinical, I can play music load without my ears trying to close up on themselves. My ears don’t cringe, yet the detail is the...

Cakyol,Then, when you have that perfect ratio of 2:1, and only then, shall you listen to Army of Mushroom, by Infected Mushroom, at full volume. Only then. To do otherwise would surely result in your drivers melting into magma, your cabinets splin...

Disappointing On Mcintosh......help
Recently auditioned Mcintosh, Bryston, Simaudio, PrimaLuna amps mated to Sonus Faber, Fyne Audion, audiovector, Kef, dynaudio. At this point the Mac/Sonus pairing is the winning combo, to my ears, with my music. Musical, sweet, huge soundstage, de... 
Is there a such too much power for speakers?
As for your question of soundstage, the preamp, amp and speakers all contribute to the soundstage. Clean power and plenty of energy storage are crucial.  
Is there a such too much power for speakers?
Go with as much clean power as you can afford. Your speakers are $20,000, so a good preamp and amp are in order. I had a pair of Sonus faber Cremonas, rated at 270 watts and 4 ohms, mated to a pair of Classe monoblocks rated at 600 watts into 4 oh...
