visitor lang ito (for now) :)

warm sounding, quite musical, tube-like.

moderate detail and not as refined on highs as an all-tubed amp, but a great vintage ss altogether.

can drive the VR4s surpisingly well...and i understand matches well with LS3s.

runs cool

looks cool with the two meters

I would say that I got so lucky to audition this gorgeous amp. I've already heared this when paired to sir mb88 BS spectrum....

And now I'm looking forward to hear it again this time to VR4..

O.T.

sir VD, nice meeting you during our bakal boyz meet.

Wow. :shock: Mcintosh gears always look cool to me. They must sound great too. Hope to be a McIntosh owner in the (very distant) future. :)

Nice dancing VU meter needles.
This started my initial interest with vintage SS gears way back...
Gwapong gwapo na face, illuminated by blue lights...
Sounds good to me and highly desirable...

A pleasure meeting you Sir VD, during the vintage SS meet :D
