This new McIntosh integrated looks like a winner

For $6500 you get what looks to be a really nice unit. Tube pre section, blue Meters and tone controls. I’m looking forward tovreviews

McIntosh products always look cool but i don't understand the hybrid idea.  I think you go all tubes or no tubes.  You either accept the introduction of distortion and like it or you don't.  I don't see how you mix the two ideas.  But that's just me and i'm an all tube guy.
