The 2105 is highly regarded.  I have thought of getting one for myself at some point.

Trying to negotiate the Mac. He wants $600 for it. What do you guys think?

That's a fair price, and the good thing is ps always negotiate. So it's a good chance you can get it much lower.

Its nice. But that's a lot of money.. Make sure you have a good listen first. Just because its a Mc doesn't mean it will sound better than your current amps through the hp out. If it is better, then maybe ask for a trade in?

I have seen the nice ones go for significantly more than $600 on Ebay.  If the glass is cracked I would say $600 is too high, though.

Just been doing a bit of research.. And if it is in good condition and you have the ready's, I'd say go for it! Its second generation Mcintosh SS and theres not a bad word to be said about it. If it's good cosmetically as well as fully working, then you could make a lot more on fleabay if you decide to sell.

 

(you need to get a better camera man.. So we can inspect you're future purchases properly! :)

For a headphone amp or an end game setup on your rack to enjoy forever?

I got him down to $550 but I passed on it. The bottom line is that I'm crazy about my Sansui. It's off the charts good. I can always go back for the Mac as I don't see him selling it soon. I walked in there for Advent speakers. He also has a nice Marantz and some Maggies.

I thought I recall you're saying awhile ago that you were done? tongue.gif.

You're like most of the rest of us - it's too hard to stop looking and it'll be hard to resist picking up new pieces unless you have a lot of discipline, are out of spending $, or you've had your fill by gorging yourself. It took me over a year and close to 20 pieces of all sorts (receivers, speakers, amps, preamps, turntables) to feel like I'd acquired enough. I'm still looking, but able to resist better now.

sorry if i don't post are the correct place, I have an Harman Kardon PM655 Vxi, my source is an iPad connected at the headphone out and using a Flac player with EQ in it, my question is if I want to connect my iPad using a LOD cable , connected to my receiver CD input then I will loose my capacity to EQ my music and headphones at the same time, Can I have some suggestions about a external equalizer to connect to my PM655 or any other alternatives, mu goal is simply to bypass the iPad internal DAC

Thank you

Danie

 

ps: I forgot to ask, what tuner should I get to go with my PM655 ?
