Depends on the speakers that you are driving. I run a C45 into an MC402 into a pair of B&W 803's without ever approaching the limits of the amp while pushing the speakers about as far as they'll go. Other than available power, the Mcintosh ss amps sound remarkably similar. I doubt that anyone could tell the difference between a 402, 252, pair of 501's, or an integrated unless the current limitations are reached.
