  1. I must be very lucky because i have never had any noticeable issue with this. I think if you have an overly aggressive system (overly analytical) then the recordings that have this problem will probably be accentuated. I have had overly analytical in the past but not anymore thanks to McIntosh.
  2. I'd buy it from you but no one needs two. One does more than enough.
  3. I have had this exact unit for a couple of years now and it is a swiss army knife with great sound. It has 3 sets of analog outputs and a digital out and feeds 4 different systems for me with all my digital sources coming through it. I have also had a DAC1 and a DAC2. This DAC3 is incredible. All the Benchmark DACs have been bulletproof. Never an issue. If anyone is remotely interested in this unit...........You should download and read the manual from the Benchmark site about all the functionality this box delivers. It is endless. My Oppo 105D head to head LOST to this unit. I use the digital out from the OPPO into this DAC3 because the DAC3 sounds better. They both have the SABRE DACs but Benchmark implemented better.
  4. I don't even know how to use the front panel of my Xilicas. The XConsole PC tool is the only way to go for me. Simplifies the whole system.
  5. If someone would offer me an arm and a leg for my NBS and VRD set I would buy this back and use it with one of my John Warren updated McIntosh MC-2100s and be happy happy. It WOULD take an arm and a leg of $$ to grab my NBS/VRD setup. But hey........what's not for sale?
  6. It also has a home theater pass through. It has stereo/mono, a tape monitor loop, and a standby mode to keep the tube heaters on. You can see all this on the front panel controls. The main volume control is an Alps. I believe the input selector as well.
  7. The only reason I sold this unit is because I had a matching set of NBS (with wooden case) preamp and VRD amps. This Peach has a more 3D presentation and depth of sound stage than my NBS and as beautiful as it is I had to choose the matching set. But, it was wonderful with the VRDs. The case on this Peach is really sharp as well. This line stage unit has the 6H30 upgrade...........in fact every single line stage upgrade Mark D. offered (black/grey face decal, grounding improvements with 3 position ground switch, noise reduction improvements, and 6922/6DJ8 conversion to 6H30 on V1). I did not get the metal box obviously, and it does not have the remote control.
  8. Not sure of the status on this but if the cabinets are 4 MWM-S that brings the value up IMHO. They are much more manageable / flexible and are pretty rare these days.
  9. Two PHDs from MIT and that's all they could come up with? 😊
  10. At this point, in order for anything more to come into my house.............something has to go out.
