Great move! I think the C 1100 phono stage may surprise you. Please post your observations after youíve had a chance to live with the gear for awhile.

I will consider the PS Audio DAC again but also have a few other options that I would most likely explore.
I agree. Lots of great Dacís out there. You will love the C1100 and it has a really nice phono stage. Congrats on the purchase.

Congrats!

I love my C1100 and 601 combo. Dare I say it BUT I just can't imagine living without the C1100 preamp....Truly amazing.

Enjoy and like Dan said, we love pics!

Thank you so much everyone. I will post pictures as soon as it arrives. Why does it have to take McIntosh two weeks to send it over... why...?

I like your style - C1100 with an MC152. That's bold and wise.
