I’ve never bought a single thing from McIntosh as I don’t have the budget for it. But, I do have a vintage McIntosh system that was left to me by my dad. It’s gorgeous, sounds unbelievably warm, and is one of my prized possessions.

In any case, McIntosh has moved along during the decades since my system was manufactured in the 1960’s. And their latest offering is the hybrid integrated amp dubbed the MA352. Apparently, this 2-channel amp is untouchable by anything else in its class. And, of course, it’s gorgeous.

I’ve actually sat in this car and there is NO denying that it’s all Porsche. In my opinion, this is one of the most important cars in history.
