  1. Item: McIntosh MC452 Quad balanced power amplifier Location: Sydney, NSW Price: $11,900 Item Condition: As NEW, never used, still in original packaging Reason for selling: Kept for a second system, which my apartment doesn't accommodate, so surplus to needs as I have two Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Used once to test, still in original packaging with all manuals.documentation Having a bit of a clean out, with some seriously high end gear going at a fraction of RRP. The MC452 at 450W X 2 at all ohms is McIntosh's current model, most powerful 2 channel power amp. The unit is flawless and indistinguishable from new. Was purchased 3 years ago along with another MC452 as well as an MC303 and MX151. I use the MC452 for two channel music and the L/R in my 5.2 setup. At 450 watts per channel, the MC452 is the most powerful McIntosh stereo amplifier and utilizes the latest advancements in circuit and cosmetic design. With the MC452, the latest circuit components are deployed in the classic McIntosh Quad Balanced design that cancels noise for impeccable audio performance. It features the world famous McIntosh Autoformer, which guarantees your speakers will always receive the full 450 watts regardless of their impedance, while Power Guard® will prevent clipping that could damage your speakers. Your speaker cables are easily but securely attached with our patented Solid Cinch™ speaker binding posts that are gold-plated to prevent corrosion. "Lacking any discernible flaws it struck me just how good of an amplifier this was. When a piece of equipment does not call attention to itself but rather gets out of music’s way to let it express its very nature you know it is on to something good. Song after song that was how it was with the McIntosh MC452." - Enjoy The Music "The McIntosh C2500 and MC452 excel at spectacular dynamic expression, beautiful and accurate tonality, satisfying detail retrieval, and the recreation of a generous sound field." - Audio Esoterica I'm also selling the accompanying McIntosh MX151 at $4,900 ($21,500 new) as well as a pair of brand new REVEL GEM 2's at $9,900 ($19,250 new), for the pair without stands. Be quick, this is seriously good value, ultra high end gear.

  5. Hola Amigos. I've had my speaker system now for around a year and a half. It's my first foray into "proper" hifi and as such, my emphasis when planning, purchasing and setting up was on lounge-room home theater. I have absolutely loved it thus far, I make full use of it every weekend with a movie or two (always at full noise of course), and every night as normal use while watching TV. Months ago, I invested in a Turntable, Phono Stage and have been collecting vinyl since. The phono connects to my Yamaha Aventage A710, and as my speaker setup through the Yamy has my fronts set as 'small' and xover at 60hz, I always just left it as is for movies. The reason for this thread, is that I only listen to music in Straight, which utalises the use of the subwoofer and the front floor standers. I've always felt that my floorstanders lacked bass, but the sub more than made up for them. However, with music, I always felt there was something missing. I felt myself straining and longing for more mid-low "punch" and thump. Sure, the sub produces fast, fantastic and clear low end bass, almost effortlessly, more than enough for my taste, but I still couldn't help feeling something was missing during music, and if I turned the sub off (power), most bass was lost. A couple of weeks ago, I changed the settings on the amp to accept the floorstanders as Large, and Do Not Use for the sub. I dropped XX by The XX onto the platter, lowered the arm and was instantly greeted by the sound I'd been searching for. It was a 'drop-to-your-knees-and-wave-your-hands-in-the-air' moment for me. I sat back and enjoyed a full range of frequencies delivered by my left and right channels alone. I can't believe how much bass they produce without the sub and more importantly, how low they go. I never knew a 10" driver in a floorstander can vibrate my back through the couch with the sub off. Suffice to say, all my music listening is now L/R only. Now, I want more from my music, in particular, from the power source. And therein lies the problem; I still watch movies, and so now I have to go into settings and change the configuration every time I want to play music, or watch a bluray/tv. This is annoying, and got me thinking. I know I can change my receiver to accept front speaker passthrough and run a dedicated 2 channel amp through, but that means I have to get a new receiver as well as a new amp. In the future, we'd like to build our next home and part of the plan is to build a dedicated theater room, and have a seperate 2 channel system, but for now, how do you think this will work?: My current floorstanders' cable runs to a terminal in the wall (see crap phone photo below), fed to the reciever in the front left corner of the room (the only place for it). What if I kept that configuration as is, bought a dedicated 2 channel amp, and placed it and the turntable between the speakers as they are, and ran another set of speaker cables to my speakers directly. I would have both the cables from the receiver, AND the decicated 2 chan setup connected to the speakers at the same time, however, only one would be on/playing at any one time, of course. The cable from the receiver plugs into the speakers via banana plugs, the cable from the 2chan amp would connect to the same speaker terminal via spades. I would be able to keep all my settings on the receiver for tv and movies, then turn the receiver off, turn on the tt and 2chan amp and play some music at a much higher quality than my receiver will ever dream of producing. Is this even feasable? Has anyone done this before? If so, what was the outcome? Does it have any implications for the receiver or would it not even matter as long as the receiver is not sending a signal? Am I dreaming? If so, do I have any other options? Sorry for the long post... Kind regards, Elyas
  6.

  7. Now tax time is here I'm getting itchy fingers and would like to do something for my 2 channel setup. Trouble is, I don't know where my next gains will come from. This is all focused around vinyl listening. I currently have a Rega RP1 that I have done some modding to- 24v upgrade motor Rega TTPSU GT Acrylic platter GT Reference subplatter White upgrade belt 2M blue cartridge. This is running into my CA Azur 640p phono preamp and then into my Onkyo 807 receiver. Speakers are still my Paradigm Monitor 7's and Subsonic MK2 sub. I have had thoughts on if my next move would be moving up the TT chain and either look at a new deck or better cartridge but also thinking maybe I should look into an integrated amp. OR do I retire the Paradigms as they are around 9-10yrs old. Would love to hear some input as I've never really played with amps outside of HT receivers nor heard TT's above where mine is. Thanks!
