Just saw a video that was titled Mcintosh's digital amp. All that was talked about was the MX 121 pre pro and no elaboration on what is is different from its big brother. The nice close up of the MC 8207 showed the new all electronic meters without any moving parts. It looks cheap and no wow factor. Instead the new meter should have had a segmented arc sweep of electric blue LEDS. Mcintosh enthusiasts will probably have a cow over it. I am not so rigidly dogmatic about Mcintosh making design changes when it comes to cosmetics. I liked the 3D glass fronts for example. A return to the drafting board is in order for these meters.
