Single or two piece doesn't matter to me. If it's truly balanced from input to output and dual mono it means no tone controls. Should be like a solid state C1000 except better, if possible.

Yes a sound, bar would be nice. I still want a reissue of the MC 3500 but with out KT 88's. How about a 16 inch pre-amp for those of us that would like to replace our C-32, 33, 34, etc etc that have space issues. I wonder how much demand there would be for a MC 30 reissue. With point to point wiring and no surface or SS components . With real rectifier tubes.

How about real Mcintosh speakers and throw away the resonant metal cones. They could bring Roger back and turn him loose. If they don't want to do that bring back an improved line of Snell speakers. B&W needs some competition.

I wonder if Mac could built a Small Class A tube amp with less that .15% distortion. They probably could, but is there enough market?

I'd like to see a tube version (not a hybrid) of their headphone amp.

Mc205, mc207 successors.

Would be nice to see a slight bump in power.

A soundbar (as a lifestyle option) may be a good idea. I'd never buy a soundbar even though I have demoed several in store, but I would be excited to try a Mc version providing it's ok for music too. I'm not putting a sound bar in my theater, nor in my main TV, but my bedroom could be a nice fit.

I wouldn't mind a Mc 4K/3D bluray player that would make a decent transport.

A new 10.5" open reel tape deck with both 2/4 track interchangeable head stacks.

Why let Ballfinger have all the fun...
