Check out My NEW Office System - all McIntosh powered!


Recommended Posts

It's no secret, I've been a McIntosh fan longer than any other audio brand. it all began in the 1980s when I lusted after an amplifier with meters. I got my first McIntosh gear in 1990 and I've never looked back. Recently, I redid the office system slightly and thought you guys might like to take a peek. This is what I listen to when I'm at my desk. Yeah, it's kind of mental . . . but then again so am I.

ASUS Motherboard Toslink Output > Onkyo SE-U55 D/A > biamp SCM7600 mixer > BBE MAX-X3 Crossover:

- 80 Hz and Down > McIntosh MC2300 power amp > (2) RFD1218 HX2 18"

- 80 Hz and Up > McIntosh MC2300 power amp > Polk RTA 15TLs

The Audio Control C101 EQ is simply tied to the Tape outputs of the mixer for the bouncing lights . . . the EQ in the mixer is all I need. The Crown MT2400 is just chillin' in the rack for now.

Other sources include a Yamaha CDX-900U CD Player, Kenwood KT-8300 tuner, and Onkyo TA R-33 Cassette Deck. Power conditioning / management comes from a Panamax MAX 1500.

The HX2s are in 8.5 cubes vented each, tuned to 30Hz. Tony D'Amore and I actually built these cabinets for my 4th of July party in 2009 (which I later cancelled). The ports were designed to be removable so that I could drop in some 24Hz ports for indoor use, but I just never needed to do that.

This system plays as loudly as anyone would ever need in a domestic environment. You'll just have to trust me on that . . .

I'd enter it in System of the Month, but Chode would kick me out because the boxes are bare . . . LOL. So, what do you guys think?

Wicked.

That is a lot of speaker in a small room! And with McIntosh power on tap, I bet it will get crazy loud WHILE being clean. I love McIntosh equipment. I managed to get 4 McIntosh silk domes years ago- I went from cheap peizos to those (not really knowing what I had) and my eyes were opened. Sadly- no other McIntosh gear has come my way as easy as those tweeters did.

So you know the question... got any vids? :D

Krakin, are you some sort of mad scientist?

I would have replied earlier, but I was measuring the output of my amp with a yardstick . . .

What you hear is not the air pressure variation in itself

but what has drawn your attention

in the two streams of superimposed air pressure variations at your eardrums

An acoustic event has dimensions of Time, Tone, Loudness and Space

Everyone learns to render the 3-dimensional localization of sound based on the individual shape of their ears,

thus no formula can achieve a definite effect for every listener.
