HI-FI WORLD: 'OUTSTANDING' McINTOSH MT5 TURNTABLE OFFERS 'SOLID AND CLEAR SOUND'
Reviewing our MT5 Precision Turntable, Hi-Fi World noted its strong visual styling is matched by its "ease of use and breadth of ability." Listening to Scissor Sisters Mary, it gave a "gratifying stable sense of tone" to the piano and the track was "grounded in its timing, firm and assured in progress, with cleanly delineated intervals between notes."
Further listening showed the "MT5 holds time well, underpinning instruments by removing subliminally disconcerting lack of stable pitch." On Mark Knopfler’s True Love Will Never Fade, it "delivered dynamic contrasts seemingly greater than hi-res digital" that were "graced by a silent background." The "MT5 offers a solid and clear sound with great temporal grip and fluency, whilst dynamic contrasts were conveyed with conviction." Awarded 5 out of 5 Globes.
