RE: I May Be Upgrading - But Not Sure.

I have no experience with a properly rebuilt Sherwood (but "Sherwood" like to!).

We rebuilt a pair of MC30s with guidance from Jim McShane. If I could point to just one thing that they do better than any other amps I've heard, it's micro and macro dynamics. With the right system and source material they're unsurpassed and, in my experience, unequalled.

So my guess is that since the MC60s use the same topology as the MC30s they would sound every bit as good properly rebuild and customized. Replace the 12AU7 with a 6CG7 or 12BH7.
