    Default Simplicity

    I recently sold off a half dozen high end amps, preamps, turntables and speakers. Thought I would take a break from HiFi.
    But 6 months later I saw this beauty on my local Craigslist and pulled the trigger. "Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in."

    Is that also a McIntosh preamp on the rack? What speakers are you driving with this beauty?

    Major respect for your new amp choice (Macs are cool). A proper man's piece of kit, chosen with what I suspect were no concessions to girly nonsense, such as 'WAF'!

    Bet it sounds fab! Enjoy your choons, bro
