McIntosh MC275VI vs Rogue Audio Stereo 100

anyone heard or owned both that can comnent on how they compared?



From what I've read the 275 does benefit.  The one i listened to had Gold Lion KT88 and stock tubes everywhere else.  

I owned a 275 and was very underwhelmed by it.  It sounded plain and very ordinary.  Absolutely nothing special at all.

I have not used the Rogue, but did have the Mac.  It definitely benefits from upgraded tubes, especially the small signal tubes.  I also used the GL KT88s which made a smaller but noticeable improvement.  

I have since moved to Pass 30.8 and like others have mentioned, it makes the Mac sound a bit muddy.  Definitely hearing more of the music without sacrificing musicality.
