    Very nice. Too bad there doesn't appear to be a Network Interface.

    It’s impressive looking.

    I must say, however, who decides the product nomenclatures at McIntosh - MA12000? Not a criticism but an observation...

    Both Ron and Chuck are quick to respond and very helpful. They will point you in the right direction which will likely begin with your authorized dealer and/or distributor for your country. Good luck in a speedy resolution.

    This looks awesome... I would be tempted to sell all my gear for one of these, but then again, other than power, mine probably sound better.

    I like that their new DAC goes up to DSD512 but I would think the T+A is better. I also believe the SimAudio phono stages are probably better. I am also 100% sure the Moon headphone amp us much better. I also think the 3-box Hattor is better than the built in pre... but oh what a wonderful package!

    This does look amazing, but I wonder the value as compared to a Pass INT-250 for example. Certainly more whistles-and-bells on the Mac.

    If a person wanted to avoid the upgrade bug and just wanted one unit to do practically everything, this does seem terrific. Get a streamer hooked up and/or a turntable, and you could be done for quite awhile.

    Would look great with my Elipsa SE's...
