Will PS Audio develop a competitive product? (Humorous question)

I can hide my M1200 in the 600 boxes to make them look more impressive. Please add my name to the Beta test list for that.

Why don’t you hide BHK 600s in doubled up M-1200 chassis and cruise with a sleeper system?

:wink:

You mean there is room for one BHK 600 to stuff both of M1200. That sounds great and I may only have to pay one-half of what James wants to charge.

You cannot mean the other way I around I hope, the Mod for that will be too high I am afraid.

Those BHK 600’s are impressive looking.

As I said at some point up above, I don’t care what people do with their own money if it brings them joy. I just found it terribly amusing TO ME and MY fiscal and audiophile priorities to see a $1,500 empty box. If you can afford it and it’s the ONE THING that will make your system be exactly how you’d hoped, I hope it brings you a great deal of joy.

The first Peachtree Nova had a space where you could slide a Sonos Connect into it internally. I guess they were ahead of the curve.

Those were pioneered by another user here and he had one made for Paul. Here’s the original post:

McIntosh understands, and embraces, there are those who buy their equipment for its appearance.

Harley Davidson built an entire side business on that theory.

Part of my office rig. I’ve had it for more years then I can remember. I restored it a few years back. Paired with a Magnum Dynalab ST-2 antenna it sounds great.

I adore those Marantz receivers. From the sideways dial to the adorable typefaces, they are unmatched in design and beauty.

That is a beauty. I’ve had my share of Marantz gear over the years and have always admired the sound, the looks, and the feel (especially that flywheel tuning).

This is strictly a tuner. It’s not a receiver. Of note is the o-scope on the left for adjusting reception.

Depends on which fuse it comes with.

So, I have a confession. When I got setup with the DSD Jr, Matrix, and a Mac Mini server I loved the sound. But I didn’t like the look of the Matrix along side all of my PSA components. The Mac Mini was sleek enough to blend in. So I figured I could modify the empty case of another Mac Mini, fit the Matrix in it, and boom - eyesore remedied. I had to Dremel out the bottom of the case and do some fenagling. It looked good, the only thing missing was a blue LED. Got that squared away and it was done.

Does this make me guilty of counterfeiting?

Yeah but guacamole is delicious. :drooling_face::avocado:

Sounds like a good move to me.

Wouldn’t start a business with that as the premise but as a one-off you should be safe

It reminds me of the high end audio company that hogged out a big block of aluminum and jammed at $175 Oppo player inside. They sold it for over $3000. When a reviewer opened it up that pretty much ended that high end company.

Tice too with their clock. I just saw a $500 Macintosh clock where the meters were hours and min. But at least that functions as something.

Good advice :smiley:.
