    I have the same amp and agree with the sentiments on it. I had it paired with the Dared also until I picked up the Rogue Magnum 66.

    The McCormack replaced a Parasound 1200ii I had and I have never looked back.I just had my Sunfire Signature refurbished by Flannery’s and I still think the McCormack sounds better than it and it is rated at [email protected] ohms.

    Nope. Just hooked it up for the first time about 30 minutes ago. Replaces the Krell.

    Have to finish putting the system back together ( had the whole thing apart) but I literally can’t get out of my chair. This thing sounds glorious.

    I’ll possibly consider the upgrades down the road, but this is it for now.

    Cool Paul ...glad it arrived safe & sound!

    Paul, if this thread setup had a soundtrack, it would have been from a 1970s dirty movie.

    Congrats on the new acquisition, setup's looking good.

    Bow chicka bow bow....

    PS Audio GCPH is very good IMO... I haven't had anything really high end, but this is extremely adjustable and has a very clean sound.
