Strength:

The MX136 has a superb MM phono section. I was really surprised about the transparency of vinyl using the built in phono preamp. The sound stage is both wide and deep without any glare, very natural sound. The preamp section is very flexible and has a pure stereo mode. All inputs are very low noise and produce very natural, unconstrained sound. Input names can be altered and video circuits can be turned off by individual sources. The glass front panel is easy to read and the backlighting is very attractive and quite functional.

Weakness:

The preamp was designed for managing surround sound and according has many inputs and outputs. McIntosh tends to make large components and the MX136 is really very large which makes it difficult to install in some conventional locations. A video screen is required to rename inputs and execute some advanced features normally set during installation.
