C.J. Premier 11 vs McIntosh MC 252

Does anyone out there have any thoughts on comparing the Conrad Johnson Premier 11 with the McIntosh MC 252? I am using Genesis V speakers with the Mac 2200 pre-amp.
With a McIntosh pre, I would definately get a McIntosh amp. Synergy is the key.
Hi I have the Mac 252 and a 2200, also listening to a Mac c45 both are great with this amp
