    First listening impressions: percussion sounds incredible. The 4435's already did this well but it's like having a drummer in my living room!

    Congratulations! The 452 is the amp I really want. I'd get rid of some of my Mctube gear to make the room for it.

    I do not blame you for caving in the end. If I had the means and opportunity, I would definitely have done the same.

    Beautiful 452!

    I'd like to thank you guys for getting me hooked on McIntosh again. I have not been as happy as I am now. Just loving the music and checking out the McIntosh preamps to go with my amp.

    Gotta say @kevzep I'm mighty impressed so far and I've only got a few old cds to test it with till I can get the USB->Spdif hooked up on Friday and unleash my digital library for a proper reference session! Got so close to buying one last year and ended up with the 275 mkVI which I regretted as it just wasn't a great match for my speakers.
