    Congratulations Eric! A full stack of MSB digital front end with their new amps driving the Magico M3s should be a delicious combination. Enjoy in good health.

    Re: MSB M500 Monoblocks

    Mike and Mike just left. Mission accomplished. We are burning them in for a day before any critical listening. If they sound half as good as they look I'll be very happy. Initial impression out of the box. Very very low noise floor. Percussion instruments incredibly snappy with a very quick attack. Cool running.

    Great looking world class system Eric! Looking forward to your thoughts in a few days!

    PS - Who’s the model guy posing in front of your system?
