Bottom Line:   
Summary:
Very warm yet transparent. All my CDs now have emotion to them now. I don't know if it is typical of a valve/tube amp as this is the first I have owned but it sure is enjoyable. Sometimes you think it is not that fast, or accurate, but you do just keep on enjoying the music it makes and forget about the hifi qualities. If you do want to analyse the sound though, it's all there, just a different presentation. If you like your music low fat, fast, tight and accurate then look elsewhere. This is full fat and all the goodness. If you want an emotional, warm sound that is still very transparent, this could be the last amp you ever own. The wife said it sounds great - what more praise can I offer up?

Strengths:
Feeling, makes everything musical, weight, body, slam, you forget the hifi and enjoy the music, great build.

Weaknesses:
Looks are an acquired taste, heavy at 35kg and takes up a lot of space, horrid remote control,

Bottom Line:   
Bought this integrated 6 months ago because I was tired af all the years of trying to match amps and preamps. Put it into a system with my Quad 988s and could not be more pleased. Great natural sounding bass and beautiful highs. Rugged build Quality and classic McIntosh looks. Iv'e never used kt-88s before because I love the sound of a good el-34 based amp. I shouldn't have worried as once the amp settled into my system it just sounded great. I really never considerd McIntosh before but sure am glad I gave it a listen.
