re: The Phish Summer Tour Thread... - Marco Esquandolas
Funky, thanks for asking. As of this afternoon, a friend of mine who works at UofA called with a pair of tix in the box section just to the right of the stage (Mike side), so it looks like I went from ticketless and having to pay $120 in the lot to having a box, catered, and access to the Mereced...

re: Help Me Upgrade My Current AV Setup - Marco Esquandolas
You left off the last part of my sentence--"for the most part" The average home has an all in one box or a Best Buy receiver with 5 shitty cube sized speakers and a sub made of particle board. More often than not, these things are set up so poorly, they make TV sound worse than just stereo. No...

re: Help Me Upgrade My Current AV Setup - Marco Esquandolas
I always tell people to start with 2.0--most do it the other way and have to back track and then hodge podge the rig. Think about it this way--you start with a capeable 2 channel rig. When you watch a movie or TV, 90% of what you hear, even in a 5.1 set up, comes from the front L+R. So why not li...

I still need a pit tic for tuscaloosa--if anyone here has one, I will pay $100 for it and will meet to pick it up in Baton Rouge Thursday or Friday. If not, then I will get one in the lot. Thanks to those that offer :cheers:...

re: Help Me Upgrade My Current AV Setup - Marco Esquandolas
It doesn't have to be the same brand as long as the impedances are close to a 10:1 ratio from pre to power. However, manufacturers tend to make their pres and amps blend seamlessly when used together. Over the years I have used, more often than not, amps and pre amps from different manufacturers. I ...

AudioGon is a forum and buy/sell community of audio geeks. If someone is a retailer, they must disclose it. They also have their own system of sales feedback like eBay. I usually buy all my gear new, but if I did buy used, I would not hesitate using AGon. :cheers: If you want secure used p...

re: Help Me Upgrade My Current AV Setup - Marco Esquandolas
The Mac gear really is nice--you get what you pay for. I have an MC2105 power amp--their first foray into solid state--made from 1967-1976. I still use it in a smaller system in one of the bedrooms. I accidentally cracked the glass faceplate when moving it a couple years ago--I called McIntosh...

re: Help Me Upgrade My Current AV Setup - Marco Esquandolas
Rotel amps are tanks--I have had my 5 channel amp on 24/7/365 for almost 8 years now. Their gear is well built. British company. Rotel is not going to give you the warmth that Mac will give or for that matter, the fluidity that Bryston puts out, but they are a fantastic value. Their Class D amps ar...

re: Help Me Upgrade My Current AV Setup - Marco Esquandolas
The MC 302 retailed for $5500 when it launched back in 2010. I believe it is now $6000 or $6200. They had a price increase across the board. There is a silver lining to that...if you get in early, your gear will not lose much value as McIntosh tends to keep gear current for 8-10 years. And the...

[quote]If I were to get a pre amp as well I would have to scrap my current receiver correct?[/quote] No, you wouldn't. Almost all newer high end pre amps now have a "pass through" mode that allows unity gain when using a 2 channel with a 5.1 set up. It allows you to keep the better amps permanent...

McIntosh just released a 150 wpc amp and it is not crazy priced--go to Mcintoshlabs.com. You can get a few % off if you use Uptown Audio on Veterans Blvd. at Green Acres in Metairie. Richard owns the place and makes me look like a beginner audiophile! :lol: And it looks pretty cool in the dark...
