    I'm guessing that Mac's new ownership may have these on closeout real quick-like. :/

    lexl1wcthqsz.png

    On the other hand -- I am picturing the tour when the new owners came through. Take 'em down to the R&D labs and show 'em what the boys people beings in the lab have been workin' on. A box. With green lights on the front. Ka-ching! SOLD! ;)

    Now, lest we be accused of tunnel vision, I feel obligated to point out another new, state of the art product from McIntosh. Yes, they've got a new... tuner. Costs the same as their previous model, but has slightly worse specifications. And it's got big blue meters! For what? I hear you ask.... they're level meters. Just what every tuner needs. :#

    In seriousness, it will be interesting to see the innards of this one. Speculation elsewhere on teh webz is... well... speculating that the FM specs suggest that it uses a ubiquitous "FM radio on a chip". Wonder if that is indeed the case.

    The McIntosh SJ-100 (shark jump) is coming this fall, I'm sure. :|

    Yet, it's sort of refreshing in a weird way to read a review that doesn't kiss the a** of the manufacturer.

    It really is too bad that McIntosh doesn't still have their Amplifier Clinics -- 'cause if I had one of these LB-200s, I'd sure want to have it tested and make sure that it meets its specs!

    It would be best if it had meters that danced with the music

    Realistically I could see something like that running 500 bucks tops

    I just had a brainstorm!
    Imagine the same product, as you describe it, with a removable logo that could be replaced with the logo of your choice. With big blue meters?!

    Heck, Mac could partner with someone to make the third-party logos and sell 'em for $150 a pop to get back some of their profit margin if they sold the base model for $500.

    I'd buy one!

    :)

    edit: I guess I'd be tempted to go with "Yamaha" for mine, but then the other line would have to be changed to the year 1887. B)

    I think it's a little too expensive unless someone wants to buy one and have it drop-shipped to Amir M. B)
    I'm gonna pass on that.

    It probably emits all kinds of RFI, though, with the odd bits of hardware that it does have aboard from the factory. :|

    Lol, no doubt. I'm sure they used premium switching wall warts and the most expensive blue Leds possible

    Or YORX?!

    Speaking of which, this YORX was decades ahead of Mac, with a built-in, dedicated drawer for stuff right in the bottom of the pseudo-stack! From Sharp YORX minds come Sharp YORX products.

    My K-Tel disco album collection is equally split between vinyl and 8-track, which makes Soundesign's disco ball Hi-Fi apparatus ideal for all of my listening needs. :p
