Sam's review of the Mac C220?

Am I missing something? In his review he notes the Preamp is the least expensive in the Mac line, that his Neighbor's home has a value of $900K and that the CJ preamp he compared it to has a value of between $2500 AND $3500 depending on a phono amp but nowhere does he say what the item he is reviewing costs...

It might be there in all those words but darned if I can find it???

3,300 bucks.

What a rip off.

Parts probably only cost them 120 dollars.

Mea culpa. I neglected to add the price information when I copy-edited the text of Sam's July column.

It was a great piece, just lacked a punch line....

He didn't want to write about how bad he thought it sounded.

Well, it is a *preamp.* It isn't actually supposed to sound like anything after all, and he did note how quiet it is. I liked the review.

I'd love to sample McIntosh products one day

I dug his review as well - very entertaining!
