Did you get the MA or the MAC? I have a MAC6700 with a TM2 Tuner, paired up with P37's and a VPI Prime Scout. Love it. It is a very fine piece of gear. Congrats.

 

Do let me know if you have trouble with the USB DAC. It worked for about a month and quit completely. Same exact deal on my C2500 (with the same DAC). Optical and Coaxial work flawlessly but USB is problematic. Audio Classics said to send it back whenever but I use them both so much AND love them so much there is no way I am A. parting with either for any length of time or B. SHIPPING either one of them. I'm fine without it. The way I see it the internal DAC will become outdated anyway but the rest of the machine will not.

I got some more KLIPSCHHHHHH

RP-160M going to be pulling front height duty for atmos/dts/auro3d content. 

 

I needed a replacement pair of bookshelves for this location when I discovered a bad driver in my old pair. I made a few calls, got a few leads for the RP-600M, but one look at Craigslist is all it took to get these guys.

 

Funny story goes with this purchase. So I call phone number on the CL ad and the guy says come get em'. I say, I am going to the baseball stadium tonight to watch a game, so can you meet me somewhere to make the trip reasonable for me. 150 miles between us. He says sure and we set up to meet in a parking lot, where I drive to and wait. So this guy shows up, and he ends up being the same dude I just sold my Klipsch Academy speaker to two weeks ago in another parking lot location. He is like WTF are you doing here. I am also shocked, because we emailed on the first go around and neither of our phones made the contact familiarity apparent. I made sure to lock in the contact info this time. Thanks again if you ever read this David.

I will. I Know the DAC maybe outdated, and I am planning on trying to use a DAC/streamer connecting to the XLR inputs. A Cary Audio DMS 550 would be perfect I think. But I bought it mainly for it's the power, headroom, and  that McIntosh sound that I am after.

I contemplated getting the mac7200 initially, but when this one came up, it was a no brainer, as the internal DAC can be bypassed by newer and better if I may say. 

 

I do have the MA5300, and the USB in this baby is first class !  I never had a problem using it. I had to download the USB driver however from McIntosh first, but since then no issues at all, and the sound is amazing with my CWIII's.

 

I plan on using the MAC6700 with my K-horns.

Cornscala D. I'm in like right now; not in love. Need time to dial in. Even though they look like they're just plopped down I've been playing with positioning and I'm finding fractions of inches and angles matter.  I will work with the limited space I have.

Same here. I really could care less if the dac craps out altogether. I bought it for the beef. It is a fantastic unit for sure

I'm almost there...have the drivers, and the horns were re-stock items at a excellent price.

Enjoy! Mine were "turnkey". I don't have the facilities, abilities or patience to build!

I order this NAD C 658 Preamp, as it comes with decent DAC's and a BLUOS music streamer.

 

I like the Blue OS. It's easy to use and very functional. I already have the NAD M-12 and this one looks similar, with the built in BluOS, so no need for extra module like on the M-12. The C-658 lacks the screen, but oh well, I can hardly see the screen details anyway from my sitting position, and that's what the iPad BluOS app is for anyway !.

 

I think this should be a good companion for the recent McIntosh MAC6700.

Thanks.  All natural child birth with no meds.  She's a strong girl.  It must have been rough as she ruptured blood vessels in both eyes pushing.  Last night when I went to visit she was up and around with a great attitude.

No meds is best! I'm an RN, glad she and babies all OK!

Congrats Schu!

thank you sir...

I had to change my set up for the next year or so... I went back to my Modified Cornwalls and hid the LSii's in a spare room.

Good name choices, short and distinctly different from the other. The training stage is awesome, not easy but oh so rewarding. My puppy training experience is only with Lab and a German Sheppard pups and no knuckleheads so I'm probably luckier than most.
