I enjoyed the review; the Mc sounds like a great Preamp.
Curious to know if anyone reading this has ever checked out Supratek's Chardonnay Preamp. I bought one late last year and was so impressed by it, I recently acquired a pair of their 100wpc Monoblocks to mate with it. Now, I have trouble picking my jaw up off the floor while listening to my system. : )
Vastly different background between the two companies - about as far apart as could be in every aspect from size to design philosophy (electrical and asthetics).
If interested, check out Supratek at Supratek
Amazing gear, and very pretty, too...
