Amongst the most satisfying speakers I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing for quite some time.
It’s not powerful, it’s not impressively large, it’s not pretty, it’s not particularly well-built, it has only four line level inputs and no phono stage. But...
The McIntosh MCT450 SACD/CD transport and D150 digital preamp bring together the very highest levels of high fidelity and reliable, feature-laden delivery.
A highly refined transducer with a consistent set of satisfying qualities across important performance criteria, namely, detail, transient speed, soundstage and tonality.
A succinct example of the modern speaker designers’ art, a statement showing that KEF the company remains a foundry for exceptional engineering.
Audition an Avid Sequel SP right now... you will never, ever, regret that you did!
The Nu-Vista 800 throws the gauntlet to top-level preamp/power amplifier separates. Musical Fidelity may have itself another integrated classic.
The best integrated amplifier ever to grace our audio testing and music-listening environment? It could be.
Take a good look at the Dynaudio Focus 600XDs, because they represent the future of reproduced sound in the home.
It’s a sweetly refined transducer which reproduces extraordinary micro-detail... something quite special
