So, as stated earlier in this thread, I'm happily powering my DA-RMas with a pair of Audio Note Quest Silver 300B SETs. We recently moved into a new home and I now have a dedicated music room/man cave. Since the room was already wired with in wall surrounds, etc., I dug out all my old HT equipment and essentially have two setups by swapping a pair of interconnects and spkr cables.
Not wanting to run my 300B's for TV, etc., I started looking around for a ss amp.....I've never owned any McIntosh equipment other than car audio, but I recently heard a pair of newer model monos and was mightily impressed. Looked around and saw their new smaller form MC152 stereo amp. Ended up purchasing it and although it only has about 120 hours or so on it, I'm really, really happy with it.
No, I won't be giving up the 3 times more expensive Quest Silvers, but the MC152 sounds fantastic to my ears/tastes and just nails the mid bass and mids, which is what I love. So, although I never thought I'd spend the bucks for McIntosh, I'm really happy I did. For my tastes it comes about as close to the sweet fabulous mids of the 300B SETs as I've heard.
