DNA-750s

Post by jeffreybehr » Sat Aug 25, 2012 12:17 am

I bought this pair, refurb'd, directly from c-j after Lew Johnson told me they were the best-sounding amps ever to wear the McC name. They drive VERY well my much-loved Vandersteen 5As and rather brought the latter and my music system 'to life' after I had been using various lower-power multiple amps on the 5As.

I've improved some parts in them--see http://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=104073.0 ...
...and they sound EXCELLENT--clean, detailed, transparent, smooth, absolutely effortless, highly musical without sounding too 'warm', and never dark.

I love 'em and can't imagine what I'd replace them with.

Truly a beautiful peace. I would love to try them out with my system! I don't think I could give up my CJ Evolution 2000's but the DNA-750 looks really nice with some great specs. Congrats!

I t proves difficult to find second hand Mc Cormak in Europe in general.....the brand is well appreciated in US and any MC C does not stay so long in audiogon ...I noticed
