Seems very quiet on the news front eh. In the mean time I'm about to move residences and set up a new dedicated HT, so I'm lining up a Marantz 8802 so I can do ATMOS and DTS:X, plus finally pass 4K from my HTPC.

Just curious, how many are considering the Marantz 8802?

If you are, do you plan to keep your MX151 till they upgrade it?

And lastly, does anyone know if McIntosh has a trade in program?

Sony VW1100 | Stewart 156" Ultramat 150
McIntosh 151 | 3 x MC601 | 1 x MC205 | Oppo 105 | Lumagen 2041

I will likely try and compare, but I won't sell the 151 right away - I need to be convinced the 8802 is equal or better sonically. I doubt I will do anything until they are building the units with HDCP 2.2 factory installed.

I'm jumping on the 8802 bandwagon. My buy in cost for my used MX-150 was so cheap last year, I won't lose anything on the swap out. I'm sure McIntosh will eventually do something, but I have to say I'm not as optimistic about the what and when as I would have been if they were still part of D&M Holdings. Worst case for me is the 8802 can be a interim update until McIntosh or someone else come out with a unit that's worth moving to.
