Yeah, I ordered one last night from a dealer.  They estimated 3-5 weeks for delivery.

I don't know if they even consider it has an issue. I would like to know the opinion of others after listening to it first.

It may not be relevant to the MHA100, but my expirence with the cross feed withe the Phonitor 2 is that I prefer the sound greatly without the circuit engaged.

I also had the Phonitor and while I really liked the amp, the cross feed did nothing to improve my enjoyment.

No more feedback on this one ? :-(

MHA 100 50-watt per channel is a true 50-watt per channel? Or is this a mass consumer-level type of 50-watt you see on Pioneer receivers.

Anyone did listening to it at the Munich 's High-End Audio show ?

And... Could't find any Munich 's High-End Audio show REPORT thread here on Head-Fi ( or on the internet ) ?!

It's a beautiful unit, thought I'm somewhat mystified that McIntosh chose to provide a bass boost feature rather than traditional bass and treble controls.  What were they thinking?  That listening through headphones magically solves all the problems with overlly bright or overly dull recordings?  I wonder whether McIntosh designed this product from the ground up or started with some OEM unit that had bass boost in its feature set.

There's no way to know for sure without measuring but I would assume true 50 watt.  I don't think they would risk tarnishing their reputation by publishing blatantly exaggerated specs.  If anything they may be conservative?

Well, I will be more than happy to do it IF, like "official" journalists/reviewers I could get a Review unit on loan for free for few days :-)

Unfortunately,Me I will need to buy it if I want to test it !

On that note I agree it's kind of strange that we've basically heard nothing about the amp, from reviewers or people demoing the unit. Not here or anywhere else as far as I can see.
