I had a V12R and liked the sound, but biasing is a pain in the ass and it runs hot enough to fry a hamburger. Great sounding, but I have the CAD 120's and you won't go wrong. It runs much cooler has that warm tube sound. It's hooked up to a Cary SLP98P pre, running Linn Majik 140 speakers, and biasing is a breeze. I picked it hands down over the Mac 275. I love McIntosh but sounded more SS than tube. Hope this helps.
