Classic Mac Sound

I think I need some help on this one.
What is that Classic Mac Sound?
I was wondering how the MacIntosh C-22 reissue preamp would compete sound wise with something from Audio by VanAlstine or Nelson Pass or other makes less than 6000 bucks.
I had the latest Absolute Sounds 2017 Editors Choice Awards issue. This is what it said;
The C-22 has that( Classic Mac Sound ) made contemporary with greater transparency and much lower noise and distortion.
So if you want to know what that classic Mac sound is the answer; might be less transparency with more noise and distortion.
Then I wondered could Stevie Wonder walk into a room and tell you it was Macintosh playing because of a certain classic sound?
Do those nice aqua blue lights have anything to do with the sound or the fantastic build quality?
Just something I thought about. I was wondering what is that sound? Hey thanks alot for any replies....have a good one...Mark Korda
