Disappointing On Mcintosh......help
Main goal of McI is big power. They use Push Pull mode of tube amps, this mode cause sharp and metal sound, like in more PP brand. PP mode consist in output stage 2 big tubes in two shoulders, upper and down. Signal from preamp fase splitter   is ... 
300B SET or EL34 SET
.....Construction SE /pseudo PP/ is my work. 
300B SET or EL34 SET
EL34 is not good, IMO, idea for audiophill listening, it is more for guitar amps with more sharp sound, that people senses like detail. I had SE EL34 and SE 300B, and 300 B is better variant with more wide scene. If You use instead SE output trans...
