  1. Much appreciated! Thank you! You like how the Heresys match up with the McIntosh? I've taken a leap of faith but given the characteristics of both units, they seemed like a good fit to me. At least on paper.
  2. Still trying to understand it actually. My apologies for any misunderstanding. The way it's explained to me is that if I did it pbphoto's way, that would be full range. If I ran the two rca cables to the inputs on the sub from the amp and run two from the output back to the amp, that would be operating in high pass. I think I understand this correctly, please let me know if not. By running full range, the woofers on the speakers as well as the sub are working bass, but if I did high pass, the bass is solely the work of subwoofer bypassing that signal to the speakers. I'm told most folks do the full range as pgphoto explained, but I understand that pros and cons are related to either option. So basically given my set-up, just wondering based on everyone's personal experience which would sound better? Thanks all!
  3. Greetings all, Seeking consensus regarding using a high pass or full range for my subwoofer. Two different techs at the subwoofer manufacturer garnered two different responses. McIntosh rep says high pass. Seems to me on a "common sense" level that filtering all that signal through the sub , then back to the main amp would degrade that "McIntosh sound". Thank you in advance. I don't know much but I'm learning. System: McIntosh MA5200 100 watt Heresy III speakers SBS SB-2000 500 watt, 1100 peak
  4. Right. Get that, but $2,000 is still another $2,000 and I believe that 100 watts is probably more than adequate for my listening space. Pushing my budget as is. Still kinda dumbfounded concerning lack of tone controls on this. Do they build this particular unit differently somehow making tone controls less of an issue? Rhetorical question. Think that maybe a question for McIntosh labs to answer.
  5. I'm reminded of the old Dangerfield (I think) joke "take my wife! Please". But leave my Mac. The aspects of both units individually and the pairing were what I was thinking as well. Very happy you confirmed my assumption. Thanks!
  6. Thanks Dude! Sincerely appreciate the feedback. $4,500 is a big leap into wtf am I doing territory.
  7. Thanks for your reply! I do realize it might be like shooting a mouse with a howizer, not that I would ever shoot a mouse, but I'm looking for the ability to upgrade later by adding the McIntosh now with existing Heresy 3s. Bought a Rotel A14 as a family gift over Christmas and while I enjoyed it for the first few days, there were noticeable deficiencies regarding rythmic definition and vocal clarity. I'm hoping by switching to the McIntosh this will clear those issues up for me even with the Heresys. While I know that the system would be unevenly matched, concerns too about not having tone controls. Hoping that the Heresys and the Mac will fall in love with each other and sing beautifully like a smart hard working blue collar fella and socialite might with a shared common heart! ;-). At least for now...
  8. Greetings all, Can anyone share your experience, thoughts and/or opinions concerning matching a new solid state McIntosh MA5200 with Heresy III speakers? You input is greatly appreciated!
