McIntosh -- good for show, not for sound, says dealer

More unvarnished truth from YouTube.
"real audiophiles...know it doesn't sound that good"

Real audiophiles -- be aware. You've been read the Riot Act. 



if you think its over rated, or not good, your ears are messed up.

that‘s one hell of a conclusion based on absolutism and leaves no room for the validity of alternative viewpoints. The world is currently in a hell of a mess due to exactly the same philosophy..

A few years ago, I bought a pre and an amp all original from the 70's, benched tested perfectly. It's my daily driver and sounds amazing to me. 

I have the C53 and had the MC462 meaning, swapped out the 462 with a Luxman M10X and waiting on the C900u to replace the C53. I liked the way the Mcintosh sounds but love the way Luxman sounds.. Also have the MA352, that I will not give up.. Love that one.. So it’s a mixed experience for me..

@rman9 May I ask what speakers and speaker cables did you use with the MC462 and did you keep them when you swapped in the M10X?
