This is SOOO OLD! Didn't you get the Mac Memo?

It's a cup holder to make your morning listening session a bit more enjoyable and a bit less messy. Jeez, Gimme A Break Man!

Hummmm...

Having not heard this new fangled 12000, I wonder and somewhat marvel at the thought of replacing six boxes with one.

Meanwhile, Joni's "Court and Spark" is sounding as fine here as I am sure the sounds of other's systems of choice are sounding to them.

Cheers!

Thank you.

Wow, I was just a little bit curios and did not in my wildest imagination think that I might start a "gentlemen s flame war" nor a poll on the aesthetics of the MA12000 . In my life in general I prefer function over form. If i were in the market for McIntosh Integrated and they engraved pink unicorns on top of transformers, it would not stop me from pursuing it
