My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
200.5 vs 200.8 I have not done. I said my impression is that the .5 series is easier to match and to sound good. The .8 is more like a glass with transaparency but that may not always be good.

That’s the best preamp from McIntosh. That said, it’s not better  than other offerings from other manufacturers. For example, xp30 pass labs, audio research reference 6 , Mark Levinson,etc . In terms of beauty, that’s the best looking preamp I’ve ...

I don't personally like any McIntosh amps unless it's the 1.2kws.get the bhk. Trust me on this.

I think no matter how you slice it, the bhk will be better than the jc1s with Tritons. I don’t like tubes for home theater because tubes lack dynamics which are needed for home theater. They don’t “explode” with sound when an explosion occurs for ...

I would say you need to look into the bhk 300s... very amazing amps...jc1s do not have the highs of the bhk 300s but They have better bottom end. It all depends on what you want your speakers to do. I think with your speakers the bhk300s would sou...

Guys, i just unpacked the CLX, threw them in room, connected the ati6007 amp with some cheap speaker cables that i had because my wire world silver 7 don't reach and cranked on my Pass labs xp30. Wow, my jaw hit the ground within the first 10 seco...

Alright guys.. the xa200.5s depart tomorrow along with cremonese unless a pending sale happens before they leave. That said, I will be bringing the ps audiobhk300s with matching preamp and will compare against the luxman 900u amp 900U preamp (unle...
