Any information on the new MX150. I know its pricey.

The way technology moves so fast I am a little hesitant on purchase.

Unlike speakers or amps, even my CD players, which seem to have a longer shelf life, at my home.


I may have to hide a Denon control center in my McIntosh system.


Will it do anything special for its high (to me) cost?


Thanks.

Wait until next month. They showed a prototype at CES but may have a real unit sample at CEDIA.

Does anyone know if Room Perfect (RP) is for 2 channel or 5.1?

Because of the needed R&D money, I would think it will be a tweaked up Denon.

But we will see...

I heard cost is circa 12k, but do not know for sure.


Cheers

Are you kidding? Do you think they would not do it for all?


No, I do think they would do Multi

McIntosh does surprise me sometimes, often, though.


The HDMI wait, was one thing.

My volume knob rolling across the floor was another...

My MAC 1700 Receiver working for 35 years, was the biggest.


The new MCD500 does not decode HDCD and plays SACD in Stereo not Multi.

Which made me wonder about their room set up features, of the MX150.

Looking forward to seeing it, and its options!

From speaking with them, the RoomPerfect was for 2 channel but Mcintosh was working on having 4 RoomPerfect chips in the processor for 5.1 and 7.1.


Don't jump down my throat about it though, this is what I heard.

I got the same impression. After all, having it on the minority of channels (even if they are the most important) is silly.

Room correction is for all the channels.

(Room Perfect is for 7.2 channels)

I'm curious about what "The HDMI wait, was one thing".


Do you mean it takes a while to switch inputs when requested? A relative of mine has a Denon 5308CI and it seems to take about 10 seconds to switch among inputs (HDMI and non-HDMI). It is in "auto scaling", i.e., scale-up if necessary, mode.


Any idea whether I'd be looking at similar delays with the MXS150?


Thanks.

That's OK. I would rather have SACD than HDCD.

I just attended a Mac demo of their 2ch correction software. I asked the rep if they were going to implement this tech into the MX-150, and he said absolutely. I think this is part of the reason for the delay on that unit though.


Cheers!

When inputs are switched on my 5308 it is almost instant. The latency is in the milliseconds.

Have to bump this back up as I heard these were shipping now. Has anyone had a chance to play with one yet?


I am looking for a new pre/pro but dropping this kind of money without hearing it first is a tough pill to swallow. I am primarily really interested to hear how people like the "room perfect" in comparison to the other solutions out like ARC and Audyssey.
