    Go ahead buy it!

    For years I have auditioned amplifiers in search of the perfect sound. Trying to find the right sound while staying on budget was a daunting task. After years of buying older audiophile amps on e-bay I wised up and got the MAC. All I can say is music sounds to me the way it should. Every kind of music benefits from the warm sweet sound of the MAC. (can't comment on country) Think the 100 watts per channel is not enough, think again. I believe it is more like 120 per channel, enough power to shake the house and receive a text or two from a concerned neighbor. Many stores are now selling MACs however do yourself a favor and go to Bob and Ron's and ask for Ken and Austin. These guys are excellent to deal with!
