The Lamm amps that I heard were through Tara One spkr cables and Tara One interconnects using ML 32 preamp and the new Reval Salons with Linn Ikemi cd player and ML 30.6 dac. It seemed that the amps ran out of head room at loud levels as well as threw the timing and pace off. Even though it did have a great full sound at mid volumes, the overall sonics were not correct in its integrity especially at fairly loud level. It seemed that as volume got higher, the sound started to fall apart and I could not make heads or tails on some complex passages (timing, pace, accuracy of pitch, over bloom, timbre, and extensions). Could it be something else in the system. Also had a pair of JR Model 10's on hand that seemed to beat it hands down at high levels and it never seemed to run out of head room (amazing for the small foot print). I do not know much of the ML1 and ML2 tube amps, except was not impressed with build quality for what they charge. The sound of ML1 and ML2 tube amp is another matter but require very speakers that are matched and agin I think it is over priced.
