I'm one who can. I probably wouldn't have a C2300 if not for AA. Yes, it's an individual decision ultimately, but help going over the edge is always available here.

Nice review - like I always say, McIntosh allows me to focus on the music.

Kind of nice to see the McIntosh C52 preamplifier gracing the May/June cover of The Absolute Sound magazine.

Default McIntosh C52 Preamplifier Review

... always thought the C52 could play MQA when addressed by my Auralic Aries Femto. Seems this is not so though (although it does display the correct signal - 88.2 kHz or 192 kHz f.e.). Can anyone clarify? And if not - is there an external DAC that clearly beats the integrated DAC and does MQA?
