Why do no audio enthusiasts use McIntosh?

With the exception of some of there tube gear, not many really use this stuff(or admit to it anyway), I am mainly referring to there amps. They look pleasant, they look good on paper and have the price of high end gear, but I seldom hear anyone claiming to like or one day dreaming of owning McIntosh. I have never really listened to there stuff, no good word of mouth sort of scares me away from it, the only people who like it are those who sell it, an uncanny coincidence? I don’t know. Sorry it this has been covered many times in the past, I ran a search and could not find anything.
The original post was just stupid to begin with. How could anyone assume to know that no audio enthusiasts like??

McIntosh has gotten along rather nicely as a business over the years....critics be damned.
"But the guys on Audio Afcionardo can be snobby at times."

So true. When you own $1M audio systems, 3 homes in different parts of the country, a Ferrari, Porsche's, Rolex's, and drink only $350 Scotch, you tend to get a little snobby. It's $25/year to be a member, $100+ to have a higher status membership, and very easy to get banned.
I cannot a agree more with Ebm's comment. I had owned the vintage MC30 monos, MC225, MC240, MC250, MC275, MA230, MC2105, and the modern MC2275. I kept getting suckered to buy McIntosh because of the look and 'pride of ownership'.

But my ears keep telling my head: Dump that thing now! Can't listen to music with that whisper in my head. The Mcs usually last no more than 2 months in my room.
