The MHA150 is a really awesome looking amp, I think McIntosh gear is attractive af
But not the price.
@YMO how much is it anyways? Hard to find prices for any McIntosh gear online
@dncnexus not particularly difficult, at least sticker price.
So probably $4K is you are friends with a local dealer.
You can find used MHA100 for $2500 or lower. The amp section is basically the same on both 100 and 150. It’s only the DAC section that is different, which you are likely going to use an external one.
This one is still available: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/mcintosh-mha100-headphone-amplifier-2400-shipping.934933/
Sad for me, I'm working my way backwards from headphone (Code-X) to amplifier (MHA150) and still undecided on source. That B-serial Gungnir was kind of a favorite.
