Believe the MR75, like the MX115, has an ALPS sourced front-end (rather than McIntosh). Like you, I found the SQ of same to be the least involving of the McIntosh tuners I've owned. The MR80 that T. DeWick went thru was the best, but I've always wondered about the MR74, which I've read is the best for SQ.
