McIntosh formally announces their new MA9000 Integrated Amplifier. Loaded with features & just soooo pretty. I like how they created a Mc on the top of the finned heat sinks & engraved McIntosh onto the speaker terminals. Pretty creative & classy IMO. My dealer is overseas but rumor on the street has it at $10.5K to under $12K. I like the lower number. Wonder if you could slap a Tuner Module TM3 in lieu of the DAC. Now, that would be cool.
