EVS 100S

"The EVS100S stereo amplifier uses two 200ASC modules (100 watts a channel into 8 ohms)
in true dual mono configuration including separate power cords for each channel and the
modules separated by three inches. Therefore, having separate mono blocks will not sound
better unless you can significantly shorten the speaker wires.
The two supplied power cords are 14 gauge shielded Volex cords... very good.
Standard input jacks are OFC Soundconnections and the output connections are
our exclusive binding post bypasses (we run the output wires through holes underneath
the binding posts to the outside of the amp, tin the end of the wire, wrap it around the
outside of the binding post and solder it to itself....this way the binding post is used only
as a clamp and does not give any coloration to the sound....this type of wire to spade/wire
clamp system will give better sound than any binding post there is).
The wiring is state of the art and the AC wires are only 2 inches long and the output wires
are only 4 inches long.
The amp is 16 inches wide, 8 inches deep and 3 inches tall.
It weighs a little under 6 lbs. EAR feet are standard."

Room Size (LxWxH): 13 x 13 x 12
Room Comments/Treatments:


Small room regularly dusted and vacuumed and full of furniture, plump book and record cases, pictures, paintings, sculpture and other trappings of a comfy life. Cat hair galore! Many different surfaces/materials for them sound waves to move around and dance with...

Music Preferences and Comments:
Music Used (Genre/Selections):

I prefer good music or...better. A bit of almost any genre gets played - Jazz, Cuban, African, Celtic, Middle Eastern, Rock, Chamber, Soul, Latin, Vocal, Instrumental, Electric, Acoustic, Ellington, Roots, New, Old and In-Between, etc.

System Goals/Comments:

Goal(s)? That it keep working.
It's an incredibly satisfying system of great used/tweaked specifically chosen components bought on a modest budget. VERY musical... A larger room would be nice to fully experience the joys of this system and offer better speaker placement.

System Strengths:

Present, involving, engaging, musical... captivating- so EASY to listen to. An eight hour listening session can leave me still wanting more...

System Weaknesses:

Well, the sweet spot can get awfully crowded at times...Currently? Too enraptured to notice... any problems have more to do with the room or myself than with the system. Since it's the Living Room, room tweaks/treatments are hampered if not downright frowned upon.
