What may be of more importance is that it wasn't a plug for Pass Labs or tube amplifiers in general. Atkinson is a Bass player. His choice of listening material is like a who's who of recording / mastering engineers as well as his own recordings.
My impression of his review is that the Carmel is an incredibly fine speaker that needed a tube amp (which he's not a fan of) to begin to get some fullness of bass out of. Keep in mind the pros from Dover set the speakers up seven plus feet from the wall behind them. Maybe for a much smaller room?
