    Good, but man, after you hear the 860v2, itís no going back. I really like the 760A footprint. It doesnít quite have the big sound and sense of effortless power of the 860v2, but in a small to medium room, great. Sent from my iPhone using...

    The 805ís and 800ís first Diamond series were a big catalyst to my getting so into stereo equipment. Sounds like the D4 generation are very well-received as a whole. I agree with you, Mike. After you factor in the prices for stands nowadays, you...

    To my ears, the 340i is the sweet spot and the value play. The 600 and 700 bring more power and refinement. The 700 makes a statement visually and sonically, but at a significant premium. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    True, however more of a comparison would be the C49 or C53 because the Pass is SS. McIntosh is either a love or a hate thing. People who love Mc won't even consider other. I grew up in Binghamton so I definitely am in the love McIntosh base :). ...
