I grew up with a MacIntosh 6100 integrated pre/amp amp, later with power guard as a Mac 6200 pre/amp amp.
I'm considering making some changes to my system. I no longer use a turntable… The Mac Mini is the primary source of audio and video, whether I am watching iTunes, Hulu, or Netflix or streaming Pure Music or MOG.
Now I find myself in a similar situation to Gaucho. I use a iMac to watch Hulu, Youtube and Quicktime. My 100 GB of music is apple lossless on external harddrives played on iTunes or iPod. I go into a Denon amp with an optical cable, and fat wires into a pair of JBL-100 speakers. Would you recommend replacing the Denon with a used Mac to get a warmer more MacIntosh sound?
