It’s unfortunately been too long since I have been able to spend time in the PSA forums. However, I am so excited that I had to make sure I jumped on and posted.
Just received an e-mail from FedEx that my new BHK 300’s are on their way and plan to hit the doorstep next Tuesday!!!
I type this with much excitement and anticipation…but will confess to being a tad bit nervous. These are going to be replacing a McIntosh MC402 in my system. I don’t make the change lightly, as it has given me many years enjoyment and at one point was thought to be the last amp I would ever own!
That said, I was recently able to spend some time with my friend Woot in AZ. He had picked up a BHK 250 for evaluation when it originally came out. Now in the years I’ve know Woot, the PS Direct Stream and his EDGE amp are two pieces of equipment he has greatly prized and I never thought he would think of replacing either of them. Well, the DAC still sits proudly in his system…the EDGE sits in a corner…removed…abandoned…defeated!!!
While there we listen to all kinds of music both vinyl and digital. We talked about the fact that, after a number of years, I finally had some funds for a system upgrade. We drank tequila, listened to tunes and discussed the virtues of turntables, speakers, amps, etc. It was when I finally got back home to CA, to my system, that it became clear…I have got to get some BHK amplification in the house!!! Of course I had to one up the Wootmister in the process…it had to be the mono blocks!!!
The 300s are going to be feeding Martin Logan Summits. Woot keeps telling me how they are simply going to kick the crap out of the MC402! From spending time listening to the BHK 250 in his system…I believe he is correct…and I can’t wait to get them up and running!!!
It’s good to be back…and I look forward to updating more soon!
