B&W 801D -- Classe CA-M400 or McIntosh MC1201 monoblocks???

Opinions desperately needed on amplification for B&W 801Ds. I have a pair being shipped to me. I have a choice of Classe CA-M400 or McIntosh MC1201 monoblocks for almost the same price. I have not heard either of these amps with the B&Ws and have no way to audition them, but have to decide by tomorrow which to order.

Please help! Anyone who has experience with either of these amps with the 800D, 801D or 802Ds -- your opinions would be greatly appreciated. I listen almost exclusively to classical. The source and preamp have not been decided on either.

Thanks in advance.

JT

Yeah if those are teh two choices, keep it Mc. Made in U.S.A. by people who get living wages. Probably built to standrds of safety that are real. Support good mfg's, don't just buy price. The high cost of low price.
