Been to MC Maniac's hideout: WP7s in front, Sophias as side and rear surrounds, Watch DOG and Watch center, all driven with Mac amplification. John's setup is focused on delivering the best of MC audio; and Oh boy! does it ever deliver!! But I won't get further into MC audio, suffice it to say that I will be getting into MC soon, the moment I have my two channel setup figured out.
Now to two-channel listening - My Theta CD player through Lex MC12 analog passthrough to Mac MC602 driving WP7s.
No, I wasn't immediately blown away. My initial perception was that some of the "natural(?)" bite of the instruments was smoothed over; half an hour into the audition I realized I had stopped evaluating the system, rather I was enjoying the music. All the detail was there, the bite of instruments even more natural, just right, inviting, comforting, sweet, non fatiguing; warm? don't know, but eminently enjoyable.
Of course, all the good audiophile stuff was there in oodles: wide and deep soundstage, great imaging, not pinpoint but again "just right", dynamics both micro and macro, the best I have ever heard.
Can you tell I am excited??
I'm getting Mak a Mac.
Thanks for a great time John. Greatly appreciate your hospitality.
