Thought you guys may be interested in seeing this nice preamp.
I think my dream is still a McIntosh system. I've heard from my local dealers and what not that they just aren't what they used to be sound wise and there's better value for the money...but man are the gorgeous...and built like tanks still.
Care to elaborate? Also of note: McIntosh has been bought by an Italian company that owns Sonus Faber. This could be the reason for the change in quality of their gear?
"...Fine Sounds, which is owned by Milan-based investment management company Quadrivio, bought McIntosh from D+M Group, the owner of Denon, Marantz and Boston Acoustics..."
