    A standalone Lumin network bridge (minus DAC) to compete with the Aurender N10.

    Plus, in view of the warm reception to the M1, a higher end version with A1/S1 casing and linear power supply.

    Re: CES 2016 (Audio) Wish List

    I would like to see McIntosh produce a new version of the MEN220, perhaps the MEN222. I want it to include state of the art A/D and D/A convertors, keep all the existing features of the MEN220 with the exception of the Bypass. I want a true analog Bypass, not just the Room Perfect Bypass as it is presently configured. I really like what Room Perfect does but the digital convertors need to be refreshed.

    Come on McIntosh, it's time.

    Great. It never stops. I wonder just what trick they will pull out of the hat to better the Zitron Analog series?

    Revel Salon 2 replacement, maybe they're going to call it something else because they keep denying it's in the works.

    I simply don't believe them. I'm sure they've been doing a lot of R&D for a long time.

    My CES 2016 wish list is that there is NO Salon 2 replacement. I'm just not ready for that.

    I'd like to see McIntosh be more innovative too and not just waiting for new OEM tech to come along for them to re-power and re-badge.

    I wish audio gear prices be lowered without compromising on quality...raw materials and components prices have dropped and hope this filters into the end product pricing.
