Why the hate for mcintosh amps?

Why dont people,like mcintosh? Who motivates this?

so what are the alternatives??

The looks of the C3500 are not for me but does not matter as it is priced way out of my range.

It’s priced way out of my league also. However, I find it interesting McIntosh seems more focused on tube amps these days. Interesting new tube amps being introduced. 
When I purchased my system, my Home was 4,000 sq ft and my listening room was open to the back, so yes I felt I needed the rel sub. I recently moved to a 1,600 sq ft Home with a smaller listening room and as of yet have not hooked up the sub. So far, I’m fine without it and my Wife appreciates it. 

Okay, that makes total sense. My listening room is 500 square feet in size. I like as much bass as the musician or band intended. I think our          B & Ws do a decent job reproducing almost anything that we put through them. I like a lot of different genres of music. I’m not big into rap. If a person listened to a lot of rap, the subwoofer would be nice to have. I’ve never owned any McIntosh gear. I wouldn’t be adverse to giving a listen to McIntosh when my Bryston components give in. That is likely a long time down the road. I love my Bryston gear. I would like to hear a comparison of my Bryston setup compared to a comparably priced McIntosh setup. That would be interesting.
