Was watching Elementary (TV Show) today, and noticed he had a McIntosh Processor and Amp with some Energies it looks like.

I know this contributes nothing, but I thought it was pretty cool that they paid attention to small details like this.

I noticed the McIntosh gear last night (probably a paid ad since there was a long closeup on them) and was trying to figure out the speakers, which he has as towers as wellas monitors in his built-in bookcases flanking the fireplace. They look like Energies to me too. It was cool to see the McIntosh gear, but I don't think anyone with those speakers would have McIntosh and vice versa.

I don't know man.. CF-70's have a distinct look.

Just went back to the vid, they held the frame on the pre for a few seconds, couldn't see the amp though.

Yup. I have to agree... CF-70's. I took a really good look at them. Deeeeep cabinets. The show was definitely not too interested in you figuring them out. The only speakers I can think of that are more simplistic in styling would be a set of Canton Karat's in black.

Glad, I'm not the only one who was wondering about the speakers. biggrin.gif AND I have been wondering for weeks if anything more... "obvious" was going to come of the McIntosh components, and BOOM there you go.

I have to say, McIntosh's look even better on TV than in person. I suppose if there was a front panel great for TV, it would be McIntosh. Nice HDTV closeup, I even paused the TiVo to see the settings biggrin.gif . Although, it COULD be even better in a dark room, I suspect.

Moderator harassment is wrong and immoral.

Jack Nicholson has McIntosh amps and speakers (I think) in his apartment in "As Good as it Gets."
