Thread title: NAD is better then McIntosh?
First off, when we say that one product is better than another without qualification, then we must be addressing the gestalt or whole entire shape or image of the product. That covers many dimensions of performance, including sound quality, reliability, human engineering, appearance, relevant features, etc.
However, based on the rest of the thread, it appears that only sound quality is actually being talked about.
Why would anyone believe that either of them was so technically defective as to impart a characteristic coloration to the music they process?
