|McIntosh C15 Vs. C712|

|Upgrading to Totem Mani 2's|
I run my M2s with the May Audio stands that were made for them. Sand filled. Spiked through the carpet. hard to find them now. Perhaps Totem can give you a lead on them. They are a perfect fit for the M2s
|Upgrading to Totem Mani 2's|

|Advice for a tube newbie: McIntosh MC275|
My MC-275 runs the fronts of an MX-119 based HT system. It drives a pair of Totem Mani-2s. Quite an experince. I also run a REL Stadium III sub. Enjoy the Mac! BTW, I used to run the same set-up with an MHT-100 and an MC-252 for the fronts.
