I have been a McIntosh crazy for all my audio life. The Mac gene was inherited from my late Father who was President & Managing Director of the National Symphony Orchestra (NSO).
I currently use 4 x MC501’s to bi-amp Von Scheweikert VR5 Anniversary MKII speakers. I prowl AudioGon daily for a C500(T) Preamp, but they never show up. Must be a message in there somewhere.
We Mac crazies have weathered many a sale of this legendary company. Here we go again.
A piece of trivia: What was Jerry Garcia’s favorite amp? You can often see them behind the Grateful Dead during their live performances. That’s right! The MC3500 (aka The Woodstock Amp).
