Everyone knows I'm a huge Soundlab fan. So, It should not come as any surprise that I would recommend them as your first and ultimate choice in a speakers. As far as the Lamm, I just was at an (ex) Fi Magazine guys home in CA. And got to hear the Lamm ML1 and the new VTL 750 amps in his system. Although he had a pair of new Soundlab M-1 speakers on order, they did not arrive there until the week after I returned home to Dallas. Undoubtedly he has now had time to audition both of these amps on the Soundlab. The Lamm with its ultimate purity, and the VTL, great quality with almost unlimited power. It would certainly be interesting to have him post here. I can tell you that his system is EXTREMELY high quality, and if he says the Lamm is enough for the Soundlab, I would believe him. Jtinn is right about my using the Wolcotts, and they are remarkable for sure. I would not discount the possibility of the Lamm though, having just changed from the Viva 845 (24 watts) in my own system. Although they (the Viva) were (in retrospect) not enough power for my system, the room size will play a huge role in this decision. You are free to write me directly, or post openly here at Audiogon. Best to you!
