Rob.......Such a beautiful sound system. I like how you have curved the presentation of the racks and speakers. Looks fantastic. .

That level of McIntosh and PMC (especially the transmission line bass) is clearly in the forefront of home audio systems.

mb2+611 is a nice combo, 600 watts of SS power.

The MC2301 sound very good with the MB2se. What I could use is more bass control, the MB2se are capable of some serious bass. Whether that means changing amps completely and risking the loss of fantastic Mids and Highs or adding another amp for the bass section only.

Added a second sub and a JL Audio CR-1 Crossover. All is good now.

Hi,

the Mc & PMC (MB2se) is a stunnig combo.

A freind had Spectral mono with Q3 Magico -> now Mc 601 and MB2se-> sound amazing! ok...personal taste but imho better vs. Spectral&Magico.

Default FACT 12 to the MB2SE?

I was reading the posts on MB2SE.
I have the FACT 12 in white silk right now.
My amplifier is a Bryston 14b cubed
Looking at MAYBE upgrading to the MB2SE.
Is it a good move forward or more of a side move?
Dedicated listening room is 20 x 19.
Comments?

Dear MasterLu...I have so many questions. Youve so many major systems I am truly humbled. I currently run MB2SE fed variously by Esoteric K03Xs SE through PassLabs XP20/XA25 SE
I also run an Esoteric F05 Integrated SE. The SE refers to internal EMI RFI resonance damping treatment. All components treated.
Im enjoying my PMC very much as they recently arrived from Canada to my Villa here in Riyadh.
But I find the K03Xs a little too bright. Recently listened on YT to the new release K1X. Interesting improvement but perhaps not enough for me.
Also the XA25 maybe a little weak for the MB2SE as well. Im expecting a Krell DUO XD SE shortly that offers 300W. That should clear this issue.
You have many Esoteric SACD players, I wonder which is your favorite?
Have you listened to TAD or Luxman SACD in your travels? Or a CDP with Tube Output Stage?
Thank you in advance.
Sincerely
John

Hi I have owned the MB2SE and the MB2XBDSE and had Bryston 28B monos are great for the bass but not the mids IMPO . What are the threads width you use with the Ultra 5 into the MB2SE out of interest, I don't recall.

I wonder which PassLabs amp would best suit the MB2SE?

100.8
XA160
250
XS
