McIntosh have branded themselves very well. Their main thing is the blue lighting on their vU meters. As soon as you see that you know it’s a McIntosh. Pretty much everything they make is a great av receiver. It’s just a matter of how much you’re willing to spend.

If I had to choose, I would opt for the McIntosh MA5200 which is around $4,500. While it is still very expensive compared to other brands, it’s one of the cheapest McIntosh models and price/quality ratio is excellent. This offers a sound quality you won’t find in any other model priced below this one (no matter the brand).

Had a chance to listen to it and it’s amazing. I know it’s expensive for most people but the sound quality is unmatched by anything under $3000.
