Review soundstage.com by Marc Mickelson:
“…The Lamm ML2s are single-ended amps that can drive a larger variety of speakers than other SET designs, and they are the finest amplifiers that Lamm has produced (yes, I’ve heard them all). However, on a more personal note, the ML2s are the most magnificent audio electronics that I’ve used, and they very well may be the most complete-sounding amplifiers you can buy.
… The most valuable bit of advice I can give people lucky enough to be shopping for amplifiers in the $30k price range is to seek out and hear the Lamm ML2s with their speakers. The ML2s are very expensive, and man are they worth it.”
