Many audiophiles drool over McIntosh gear and probably won't think too much about spending $7,500 on this vacuum tube preamplifer-powered, CD/SACD/MP3 player-toting MXA60 integrated audio system. I can't even blame them. It probably sounds as great as it looks.
This is the 60th anniversary edition of McIntosh's first-ever standalone integrated audio system and it's supposed to have all the quality of larger systems in a compact package. Whether it does that well or not, I don't know. I'm not a big enough audiophile to even consider shelling out this much for a system. [Crunch Gear]
