Classe` is a more refined sound, but the McIntosh is "beefier" sounding yet tinny / brighter. This really can change with different speaker types and one might decide one or the other just on the pairing.
Each will sound completely different in your room and with type of speakers.
We do quite a bit of work with both of the manufacturers and they both build a solid piece, so I certainly agree with Rpcoins.
If you can get an audition or a great return policy with a dealer, I would certainly try before you buy.
Hope this helps!
