Ratings

TacT Audio TCS mkII Pre/Pro and Room-Correction System

Build Quality: 95
First-rate internal components
Excellent fit and finish

Value: 92
Expensive but it's worth it
It does things few other pre/pros can do

Features: 93
The most valuable feature of all: effective room correction
It lacks some key features of other high-end pre/pros

Performance: 97
World-class sound with music and movies
Sounds excellent without room correction; sounds even better with it

Ergonomics: 93
Makes setup and correction fairly simple
No onscreen system, but a better-executed front-panel system than most

Overall Rating: 94
The value of quality room correction cannot be overstated, and the TCS mkII does a better job of it than any pre/pro I've used. It sounds spectacular, is relatively easy to use, and even looks great.
