  1. To me, the order of significance difference goes like this: No.1 - speakers - Tonal character and can sound vastly different No. 2 - Preamp and Power Amp Synergy - Why I say so? I heard lousy pre with very good Poweramp...not good I also heard good pre with lousy Poweramp ....not good If you can get the correct combo for both pre and power......the results can be many folds rewarding. I heard a Mcintosh pre and a very high power Mcintosh Power (600w per channel, stereo poweramp).......It made the Nautilus sings and drums so amazingly clear, crisp and clean. Both p
  2. I use an old mac preamp with remote and a mac high power stereo power amp and modded DVD flagship pioneer by James and full range xrt speakers.

  3. I was playing the Cd Dream of an Opera which I bought from New Disc Village and the gu zheng sounded very real. When the wind instruments played, i am surprised how transistor can sound like that. Nil Loftgren track 5 sounded realife and every strum can be heard at almost full octave. I am into buying more CDs to enjoy. Haave a good day everyone.
  4. Hi McIntosh owners, do post your setup here and start discussing. Thanks and have a nice day.

Btw I own the xrt speakers, Mac amp, Mac pre amp and cd player. Do share your experience. Thanks.
