I wonder how it sound, and expecially how the Headphone-out sound (can it replace a dedicated high end headphone Amp ?)

at 11500 usd$ price without options I seriously doubt many people have this thing on this forum. buy a stax sr 009 setup instead for about the same price or less. you'll thank me later.

I think the Mc275 is the the nicest looking tube amplifier, bar none. My already incredibly beautiful Mc225 pales in comparison.





Edit: Yeah... my iphone picture isn't very indicative!

Yeah I agree I posted a few pics of them few pages back. What really stands out on them McIntosh monoblocks is the green led emitting tubes.

YES!... that's a cool GIF. Do they really light up sequentially like that?

So much I haven't seen in this worldpopcorn.gif

That model is actually on my short list. Pre-owned, though.

Yes, the amp does that on start up. Once all led's flash red once and no short/defective tube is detected, everything goes green.

OK, but what about sound quality? Are they as good as equivalent (in terms of price) Audio Research?

They're not intended to have the same sound signature I guess...

Seen in a mall store in China. Brand is Zhuhai Spark and is made for the mainland China market by Cayin. Push Pull 300B point to point wired components. Built like a battleship. Fit and finish was excellent, far better than the iPod photo shows. Sounded very good too. List was 9800 yuan, around US$1500. But like all things in China, the price is very negotiable. Would have bought it but: 1) too heavy to carry on my flight, 2) 230VAC

That is damn cheap. But I'd be more concerned about the innards than anything else. Some thing's just really look good to be true.

Cayin (including Zhuhai Spark) and Opera Consonance are generally manufactured to Western Standards. With some brands (e.g. Meixing / Ming Da), there appears to be a difference between what is exported and what is on sale here in China...
