Default VAC Master line stage has found a new home!

Well... it's official! C-1100 has shipped out today, and the VAC Master pre will be taking it's place! As much as I loved the Mac, this thing is ridiculous! As it should be for 2X the money, and no phono stage. It is truly stunning what the 2301's and Strads are capable of! I don't think Jodie is going to let me go to RMAF next year!
I never thought I would ever have a system of this caliber. I am a very happy boy!

Thanks Buck! No, we will be there. I was visiting GreginNH1 the other night, and he was asking his wife if she would consider going next year, if Jodie went. She seemed open to it as well. We had a great time, and I wouldn't miss an opportunity to hang out with you all again!
I need some time to recover, but I'm sure it's only a matter of time before there are VAC monos being demo'd in my living room.
