Great review, Dan, on what I am quite sure is a great amplifier from McIntosh. I'm relieved (as I think others may be) that there is no need to rush right out and replace our MC501's with this amp. If one wants to save rack space or real estate, that may be another matter....
Great review Dan, and very enjoyable to read, as always.
