    Re: McIntosh MC75 amplifiers in the house

    I finally turned off the living room sound system at 11:30 last night. I listened to the new amplifiers for 9 hours, well actually about 8 hours because it took me about an hour to reorient the amplifier positions and cabling once I decided to turn them 90 degrees from their initial position. The sound of the MC75 amplifiers is glorious. They offer effortless performance on par with the sound I get from my MC2301 amplifiers in the studio system. The PMC EB1i speakers love these amplifiers and respond accordingly. The sound is highly addicting, literally keeping me glued to the sweet spot with no desire to turn the system off.

    So it took you 8 hours of staring to change the orientation

    Ed.......LOL. I guess that's about right. I wanted to be able to see both amplifiers. The original installation had the front amp blocking the view of the rear amp. I like it better this way.

    Brian.......Truth be known, the McIntosh MC75's have exceeded my expectations. I knew they would be good, but they are so much more. The MC75's are truly outstanding amplifiers. They have some valuable special features, too. The McIntosh Sentry Monitor circuit senses short circuits at the speaker terminals, as well as a power tube failure. If either happens the amplifier immediately shuts off. This is saves the amplifier from dangerous voltages damaging internal circuits. Another feature I like is Power Control. This allows the amplifiers to be remotely triggered by the preamplifier for turn on and turn off. A single press of the power button on the preamp or remote and the entire system energizes. No more need to flip a power switch to turn on each amp. These useful and important features add safety and pleasure to an already tremendous value.

    Dan, congrats!!

    I like the amps more when they're positioned like this.
    They are too nice to hide one.

    Bart.......I agree, being able to view both amps is a plus. The key to a nice view is cable management. I wouldn't want a rat's nest of cables wrapped around the side of the amps and hanging out the front of my rack. Fortunately the feet on the MC75's lift the amps high enough to be able to route the cables under the amps which allowed me to make the cable terminations efficiently while remaining visually attractive. I am pleased with the look.
