Not impressed

Just getting sick of the Hi Fi Merry Go Around...getting ready to throw in throw in the towel. Price to performance ratio is not all that rewarding. Sucks not being able to Audition before I buy....find a a nice amp.......good luck finding a preamp to match......on and on
Building a system is kinda like a marriage,gotta keep working at it until you get it right.But unlike a marriage when the amp leaves it doesn't take half.

OP you are dead WRONG!There has NEVER been a better time to get top quality sound from beer budget priced components!
DUMP the seperates and get an Integrated Amp,preferably all Tube or Tube/SS Hybrid...Then dump the Focus 110's,which are thin in the bass & have a nasty mid bass hump to make up for thin bass...Move into the Excite series,MUCH more natural & easier to drive...
well, Ill tell ya, why don't you just get an MC275 a decent pair of fairly efficient speakers, maybe good bookshelf speakers, good stands, and be happy for a long time.  The MC275 is really just a great music maker, maybe for somebody who just loves music and is not worried about the last enth of detail although it does a pretty amazing job with musical presentation.  Very analog sounding.  You may be amazed.  I actually think its the best sounding Mac amp in their lineup.  Its a music lovers amp.  Don't believe the the anti Mac stuff out there and listen to one.  Try to find an older one as they are built like a tank and will last forever.
