...entirely. Its a lifestyle thing. Its all about style and fashion. Its primary purpose is to be unique and complementary to the current Mac visual aesthetic. Obviously, it should function reasonably well as clock, but microsecond long term accuracy is not its purpose. While $1,800 (US) isn't cheap, in the context of a major system including the room treatments, it's not outrageous IMO. If nothing else, the Mac clock is totally upfront about what it is; what you see is what you get, something a lot of dubious and costly tweako audio accessories can't claim.
Oh, I get the whole "lifestyle"/bling thingy. But, since a radio-controlled "atomic" clock can be had for under a hundred bucks, it's puzzling why McIntosh didn't include that cability in their $1,800 clock. Clearly, a person has to be excessively obsessed with Mac and have money laying around in order to "justify" buying one.
..."excessively obsessed" is relative and audiophiles inherently have money laying around. ;-)
