I saw it with my own two eyes at CEDIA.
Its a perfect product for them. The look matches the entire line and they REALLY speak to the old-school audiophile who might just want to add a record player into his theater.
If I ran McIntosh I would also make an internet radio for the same reasons. I know it sounds crazy but there are a LOT of good Internet radio stations out there that stream KILLER playlists without any work needed by you. Just plug and play (and the needle never skips at the end)
