|System Goals/Comments:||It has to get me to where the music was played / recorded rather than bring the musicians into my living room. When I close my eyes, I would like to be transported to the venue.|
|System Strengths:||Top class dCS, Lamm and Sonus Faber. They are a great match for my tastes|
Resolution, Clarity, Soundstage width and depth, lots of air, portrays the emotion of a piece of music brilliantly. It takes me 'there' with most live recordings.
The Passive made a HUGE difference in allowing the quality of the source to come through. The new Lamm preamp has more dynamics and very little loss of transparency compared to the Bent passive.
The PS Audio PPP is brilliant!! Get one.
Very good imaging and depth. With the Lamm it is teaching me alot about listening.
