Hi,
I just got my first issue of Sound and Vision. On the last page was a stunning new looking turntable from McIntosh. When I went online to read more there were all sorts of other audio reviews already. Wouldn't Stereophile and Absolute Sound be the first to advertise something novel from Mac? I never saw anything lately....Mark

Is this the 4 year old MT5 below or the MT10 that The Absolute Sound covered almost 8 years ago @ (http://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/music-matters-at-bjorns-the-mcintosh-labs-demonstration/)? Nothing new according to their website...

Hi Quad,
I have every issue of both mags back to the 80's but I never saw this turntable before in either of them. It's so striking I don't know how I missed it. Thanks for setting me strait....Mark

rebadged Clearaudio with the Halloween themed glowing platter?

Yes, it is a rebadged Clearaudio. But, given the build quality of Macs these days, it is FAR better to get something built by Clearaudio to get the Mac look.

 

I don't know how you missed them, either, posted on March 2, 2017 at 04:45:04
