I did hear the Ls 100 it is an abslute bargain for the $3k price point and will go toe to toe at even over $$4k models, what people don't realize is that Modwright being one of the best in the field with a degree which most others don't have he uses parts quality way better than anything up to 2x the cost which make a Big difference
of the final build Many of the big name brands have a fancier case and good quality parts in far less areas
I have done DIY projects and have seen 1st hand what goes into electronics.
to Cajunpepe I am a private user I have one stereo at home and that is it . I have allways offered others to come over and listen I have been an audiophile for over 30 years and I personally find as a DIY in the past the quality of part that go into a product are far more important than the brand or the case work.I have sold 1/2 my gear this year to better it this is what all Audiophiles strive for . All I am stating in my opinion
the KWA 100 SE is a superior product at the $4k range than
anything I have heard and I do listen to gear at shows and stores as I am a salesman for medical supply and get the opportunity to travel the globe .
Hello Coffeey Srajan at 6moon is doing a follow up to the Modwright 100 that he just finished .n 3 weeks he will have the New SE model to evaluate and give his opinion.
I I jist ordered a Se unit for myself and will have it for the 20th .For this price point I am confident that from $5k and under this will rule. Modwrights says the now completed Se is even better than the proptotype of 2 weeks ago I will relay my finds as it breaks in with the Modwright caps 600 hours is what it takes to fully runin 1 month to be safe.
The 100 SE has exceeded my expectations . The inner detail is very good.The hall ambiance around the instruments and decay of instruments is spooky at times
the midrange has very good weight and slightly to the warm side which I would call natural.One thing I did notice is the voice floor is very low .When I listen to voices or flute for instances there is no grain in the structure of the instrument which is a cut way above it's price point .
The highs are well defined and crisp and well resolved.
The Bass is very tunefull and tight I never felt short changed with this amplifier . As of Feb 2011 due to
parts cost Dan said the ne price for the 100-SE will be
$4395.Which in my opinion is still a great buy for my brothers Sim amplifier or my freinds Bryston were not as involving and natural sounding to my ear, they did have a little more power , but their amps were over $1,000 more
and that was their only advantage .The parts quality are outstanding and far better than the competition.The custom Lundahl transformer is one of the best in the world ,Takman Carbon resistors ,and Modwright custom metal oil capacitors are a cut way above .I looked inside both of the amplifiers mentioned above to prove a point of comparison. The Se amp is close to 150 wpc into 8 ohms , and over 200 into 4 ohms..I go to a lot of Jaz concerts and base my music as to live or real. Your taste may be different But 6moons online did give it a Blue moon award ,because it is a cut above anything in the
$5,000 and under catagory.
