By | September 16th, 2019|Categories: DAR|Tags: , , , , |

McIntosh Labs is, by all accounts, an iconic audio firm. Throughout their 70 years of operation, McIntosh gear has been reviewed countless times and their history thoroughly documented in a number of places – see former employee Roger Russell’s meticulous website coverage for what must be a definitive take on the subject.
