CEDIAcrunch hands-on: 60th anniversary McIntosh upcoming bookshelf mini-system

I love McIntosh gear. The processors big, the amps are bad and when combined, Twisted Sister feels so right. But for some trust fund kids, the huge equipment just doesn’t fit in their West Village studio and so McIntosh is developing a rock’n bookshelf system. Dubbed the Mini-Mac by McIntosh staffers, the 60th Anniversary System is powered by two, separate tube amps, each powering their own channel. The good word is that the mini-system has all the AV magic of McIntosh’s $6,500 CD player and two killer speakers. Pricing is naturally up in the clouds with the whole system going for under $10k, and the speakers might be sold separately at $2k a piece. Crazy, I know, but McIntosh sound has never disappointed me before.
