Came across a review of
MC901, looks like the BEST of BOTH WORLDS and I am so intrigued by this!
Best amplifier ever? McIntosh Mc901 impressions - YouTube
I think the implementation is flawless, looks like a great way to bi-amp your setup and play around with cross-over to your liking! Absolute BEAST TOO!
I’d LOVE to own something like this, but in a smaller, lighter package. If they made one, or if PS Audio made one, I’d be all over it! Kudos to McIntosh to even attempt such unique approach!
If anyone’s had a chance to audition these, pls add your impressions!
I posted about this a few months ago. A dealer near me has a pair real beasts.
I just noticed this amp and I just marvelled at the concept:
Here’s the Audio Dealer near me, Audio Excellence:
Weighs 170 pounds!!!
For the minimalist, certainly…
LOL… totally, I’d buy one half the power and half the size!
MOAA Mother Of All Amplifiers.
How would you move that thing around?
That would the MC2KW is the MOAA 450 lbs shipping weight capable 2k continuous WPC and 8k peaks.
The MC2KW monoblock amplifier is designed to exceed the demands of true lifelike playback levels, capable of delivering 2,000 watts of continuous power and 8,000 watts of peak power.
That’s the issue. It’s great for ones with deep pockets and massive audio rooms but not for majority of other. Give me the same functionality, a solid state of 300W, a Tube of 100W around 50 pounds and I’m all in. I seriously haven’t heard better mid and highs than best Tubes, and better bass than with best solid states. So a combo could literally be the perfect amplifier. Key is cross over and matching harmonics which they might have been able to manage.
Yeah…maybe for the sultan of brunei
Kinda looks like a toaster
The MacPro Cheese Grater would seem to be a perfect matched music server, from a kitchen appliance and price point of view.
