Detail? T+A Music Player vs.McIntosh MCD 1100

I'm upgrading a player (variable audio out) and have been debating between the T+A Music Player and the McIntosh MCD 1100 (going direct into mono blocks) I tend to like a clean detailed sound. I know there's a substantial price difference ($4400 - $10,000) but soumetimes certain "likeable" characteristics can tip the scale to a less expensive unit.
I have no experience with the T+A, but the MCD 1100 is as detailed as they come. Some may think its too much so.
