Had to look up what ERS paper was and found a vein of crazy from 2003:

The stillpoint company is still in business:

You are ruining this thread! There's another thread for quick audio questions and opinions!

Stuff like this! Portable headphone amp for 700$! Not the best audio quality, but pretty fair for the very low price!

Crap, I was hoping I wouldnít see McIntosh in this thread, but here we are. I should have seen it coming with all the tube crap they still sell to idiots.

This is the best McIntosh product:

It's a light up logo you can put on top of your sweet Mc stack because their normal branding is apparently too subtle. It can turn itself on and off with the rest of your system.
$1500

runner up is this, a bargain at one thousand eight hundred of your earth dollars


The only saving grace here is that nowhere does it say that these products improve sound quality. But Iíll definitely put taking idiots money in their court.

The other problem I have with them is that they caved and brought back tubes for some of their stuff. My equipment from the late 60ís/early 70ís proudly displays solid state on it.

It does not do a good job repelling tigers however

I have no idea if it's audio woo or not... but the wikipedia article isn't doing it any favors:

https://houston.craigslist.org/ele/d/sugar-land-jbl-paragon-c44-speaker/7126529305.html
$17,500 40 year old speaker

I noticed it and figured I'd share here.

screenshotted in case it's gone:

That at least looks cool...

Our hearing gets worse after eating a big meal, so I assume there will be a lot of audioanorexia in the future

E: to pay the ridicule audio gods... I just set up a raspberry pi 3B with Volumio and Iím playing music through the hdmi into a receiver directly... works for me and Iím wondering why I didnít set it up a long time ago. Highly recommend

How difficult was it to set up?

So easy... download the image, unzip it, burn it to a flash card with raspberry pi imager. Put the flash card in and start it up. Itíll first create a hotspot that you connect your phone to: http://192.168.100.1 or something like that. Put in your WiFi creds and itíll join your network.

Seriously, thatís it. Youíve now got web radio and a bunch of other stuff.

I shared out my iTunes library via windows share and added it as a source via cifs through the UI. I really couldnít believe it was that easy. I even bought the app for $1.99 from the iOS App Store. Thatís the only money Iíve spent and It works great. The girlfriend loves it and has had it running non stop all day since I set it up. Iím a believer.

Thatís awesomeÖ rock on McIntosh. Fleece those boomers.

I have some old McIntosh components I got from my dadÖ so I hope they donít go too far into the quackery, but that product is awesome and serving itís intended purpose and no one can tell me otherwise.
