a preliminary listen to the amps today. Session lasted a couple of hrs and I
am very impressed. The amp has the unique ability of capturing BOTH the micro
and macro qualities of the music. It combines the inherent beauty of SET (i.e.
continuous, purity, liquidity, harmonic completeness) with the impact , weight
and dynamic qualities of top quality pp pentodes. I am especially taken by the
overall lack of artificial artifacts imparted by the amps in addition to an
uncanny ability of articulating and separating instruments. Soundstage is huge
yet very focused. The frequency response across the band is uniformly
excellent with no emphasis or selectivity to any particular segment.
evaluation will unravel the subtleties but even at this preliminary stage it
is abundantly clear that the GM 70 is special.
