I should be more careful with my cousin's 200wpc mcintosh then :P
He said it's rated to reach 400wpc but needs servicing :/ Anyways, the emo still sounds better than the mcintosh on the he500. I wonder why, synergy? People previously said the mcintosh probably has too much current, but IDK how that makes sense.
It might make sense that the mcintosh sound better when driving harder loads as it is optimized for that. It could at least be so..
