Holy Moly McCormack!

McCormack rolled out a complete line overhaul down to the cosmetics. About the only thing the company retained was its distributed node architecture (DNA) technology for its amplifiers. There are two new amps: the 250Wpc DBA-250 ($3995) and a 750W monoblock, the DNA-750 ($4750/each). Both amplifiers feature completely re-engineered voltage gain and driver circuits.

The DP-2 compact disc player ($3495) features 24-bit/192kHz DACs.

The LD-2 line drive preamp ($2495/$2995 with phono) upgrades the older model's volume control with a new 'un from Burr-Brown. Its power supplies have been substantially upgraded, as have been the I/O connectors.

The McCormacks were displayed static, so I didn't get a chance to hear them, but they surely looked impressive.
