Pretty amazing actually and far better than the McIntosh clock

If you consider that a $20 - $40 radio controlled wall clock can be accurate to within one or two seconds over a several year period, I would say this is pretty amazing for a "consumer grade" clock that can be bought at your local department store.

At $1800 the McIntosh clock will not achieve this level of accuracy. Regardless of it's expensive "thermal compensated" Swiss made movement, it's ability to tell accurate time is average at best and no where near the accuracy of that $20 wall clock.

In other words you're paying for the McIntosh name, the pretty blue meters, and whatever art value you see in it. You're not paying for it's performance - which some might argue is generally the case with McIntosh gear.
