Good but expensive

McIntosh's high-end amplifier delivers detailed and rich music, but the steep $6,000 price tag requires flawless performance. While excelling in sound quality, the amp's bulky design and absence of digital volume control seem outdated. The warm signature, though appealing, may be excessively cozy for certain listeners. Audiophile enthusiasts with ample budgets will be enamored, but those on a budget or seeking neutral sound might discover a more balanced alternative elsewhere.
