    McIntosh MHA200 Impressions

    Sorry for the late replay. I was in the hospital with a back injury. Not much else for a difference ….maybe just a slight decrease in the sound stage but a slight pick up in the upper mids.

    McIntosh MHA200 Impressions

    Again I’m apologizing for being gone for a bit. I had to deal with my medical issues. Changing the output tubes doesn’t do much of anything. Changing the preamp tubes (AX7) depending on the brand can change the sound. I’m not sure I put much value on Bobs point of view but the mullards do change...

    McIntosh MHA200 Impressions

    Sorry for the late response. I have been dealing with doctors and a serious back problem. The prediction if parts are readily available is late 2023. McIntosh didn’t expect the popularity of the MHA200 and currently can’t meet the demand. They freaked out when they received our order of 100 when...

    Refuse? I haven’t seen anyone try to force into getting one. Have I missed something??

    The Amazing Audio Research I50 integrated with headphones is way better than expected.

    Just like Germany the US tube amp manufacturers must provide a tube cage and the consumer is asked to use it. We have no laws that a fuse be replaced by the manufacturer or service station but it is and always has been recommended. Our safety standards in the USA are simply that a standard of...

    You could and you’d be able to use the harder drive cans

    The Amazing Audio Research I50 integrated with headphones is way better than expected.

    It will definitely drive an LCD4z. It’s not a high output HP amp. It definitely drives most cans. I wouldn’t recommend it for hard to drive cans. I’d call this one an audiophile HP amp for less difficult to drive HPs.

    The Amazing Audio Research I50 integrated with headphones is way better than expected.

    Yes I do know. It’s a bipolar transistor output but you can definitely hear the tube influences

    The Amazing Audio Research I50 integrated with headphones is way better than expected.

    Good question, I’ve asked that and asked for the output measurement. They are supposed to reply with that data today. I don’t think they actually measured the headphone output stage other than it’s half volt measurement

    McIntosh MHA200 Impressions

    It is very odd. In 18 years of being a McDealer I’ve never had this happen. It does seem your dealer offered a good option for you though.

    McIntosh MHA200 Impressions

    McIntosh almost never disputes a tube issue during the 90 day tube warranty

    Liquid Gold - 2014

    Mostly on the non-Cavalli built unit sounds like it collapses in on itself. The unit built by Cavalli is open throughout the entire VC. There are very good reasons the non-Cavalli built unit is less money. It was not built to be a direct copy of the Cavalli, it was built as a low cost...

    Sony Z1R....listening impressions only

    Although it’s not cheap or fast I believe it’s still possible to get the OE ear pads

    Agreed! GRP has a lot of great recording to offer

    He was on at least some of their albums. 👍🏻

    McIntosh MHA200 Impressions

    SPL and McIntosh seem to work very well together in this product scenario. I’ve tried it many times using the SPL DAC, Hugo2, Weiss 501 DAC and of course a McDAC 😂. The Phonitor should be pretty nice on your ears with the MHA200

    McIntosh MHA200 Impressions

    12 is your starting point. You should be able to get a gain match between 12-3 on the MHA200…… move gently on the gain control.

    McIntosh MHA200 Impressions

    Mullards make the MHA200 a tad more aggressive. Assertive in dynamics

    TSAV’s Sennheiser B-Stock sale! Amazing prices!

    Hello everyone! Thank you so much for the support and purchases. Well it appears we’ve now sold out of the 800S at this point. I didn’t think we’d blow through 12 units so fast but we did. The 820 & 660S is still available but even that stock is down to 2-3 units now thanks to all you...
