    They clearly do not leave a weak point like that to chance, hoping that...

    Re: Is there a characteristic McIntosh sound?

    From a subjective point of view (the pleasure that everyone gets from the audio), I am obliged to agree. However, this opens the door to a path of subjectivity that legitimizes all options, which for...
