    The lights all go out completely and you just sit there in a blue glow. :p

    I have another one just like it for the other 1.2tl. They don't dim the lights because they each have their own dedicated circuit

    I'd love to have a matched pair of 2500's. Nice sound.wouldn't want to lift them up though

    Yes moving them is a huge pita and the back to at 129lbs each. The thing that still impresses me is those 1.2s are able to soak up every single last watt to the clipping lights without the slightest sign of distress from those bridged 2500's.

    That's got to be one of the BIGGEST McIntosh Amps I've ever seen ! :o

    Congrats on owning 2 of them ! B)
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies . I am glad to be a part of a select group that tries to take our auditory and visual senses to a higher level: we EXPERIENCE them.... GOT SDA?... Got TFM ?
  • Thanks; I ran one 2500 for a couple years and I was very very happy pairing it with the 1.2s. But once I added the dreadnaught a while back I went on the hunt for a 2nd one. I can't see ever moving on from them as the newer big Mac monos are above my pay grade :'(

    Thanksgiving holiday with my parents, and more receivers/amps coming my way from my dad's garage.

    Sony TA-1150 integrated amp...it's blowing fuses.

    Marantz SR6000 receiver...needs a lamp kit, but has a beautiful wooden cabinet

    Marantz 4270 receiver...this thing is a beast...some stencil worn off, and looks like a previous owner was a Dual fan :)

    Those are both very nice -- and Denon made some fine tts (not to mention cartridges!) -- but (personally) I am a little leery of those bionic arms. I like simple stuff...

    The dp1200 is a very simple manual arm with only auto lift, no return or any servo features. Basically a manual TT but it does have auto lift at end of record.

    My Kenwood KD-770D operates the same way. Manual except for the auto lift at the end. (no return)
    There is a little story story behind DP-47F and why I bought it but I'll save that for another time. I certainly didn't need another TT

    Auto lift at end of record us a nice feature. Its no fun waking up the next day and realizing your stylus was spinning around in the same groove all night.

    Oh **** yes! Really stands out, excellent detail,clear separation between instruments and imaging. The impact of each note is remarkable. Mind you I use a good phono pre (Lehman black cube SE) and audioquest cable) but very very pleased with it!

    On one of my musical therapy sessions years ago on that blue couch, I was playing the Carpenters Greatest hits or Christmas album and I fell asleep.

    My Technics SL1400MK2 has a inherent problem where all of the return mechanisms broke on every one ever made.
    So for about an hour or 2, it spun around like you said. :s

    The one and only time. ;)
    So from then on, Cd's were the go to physical median when I was really tired.

    I once had a friend tell me that he passed out with his system at full volume and a CD player that had skipped for about 6 or 7 hours before he got up to do anything about it.
    I bet his speaker were well broken in after that ordeal.

    10 years of use in 6 or 7 hrs.

    Wonder they didn't burn up. :#
