The McIntosh would be a good visual match with your other components, however the Niagara will perform at a higher level.

I think it's difficult to answer your question, in part because power quality can vary so much from one location to another, so what works best in your system may not work the same in another.

I'm not familiar with the AQ, but I think the Mac may offer some switching options - such as selecting which outlets are switched and when they are energized - that the AQ may not. I don't know if that's important to you.
