Recommended Systems
We believe that a number of systems stand out from the pack, and of these outstanding systems, some of our best-of-breed components are an integral part.
Recommended System #1 (Wilson/Lamm)
The Wilson speakers are very detailed and dynamic and a little on the cold side of neutral. With most amplifiers, they tend to sound sterile and uninvolving. By pairing these speakers with the Lamm amplifiers, one can experience the wonderful musicality of the Lamms as can only be revealed through the incredible resolution and accuracy of the Wilson speakers.

Lamm 18 watt ML2 single-ended triode amplifier: This is felt by many to be the best amplifier in the world. The ultimate in musical accuracy, in natural dynamics.

Lamm 90 watt ML1.1 push/pull tubed amplifier: This amplifier brings most of the naturalness and musicality of the ML2 and adds the ability to drive the speaker to higher SPLs (i.e. it plays louder than the ML2)

Wilson WATT/Puppy System 7: A marked improvement over the System 6, this easier to drive speaker is known for it ability to render massive detail and micro-dynamic transients.

Wilson X-1 Grand SLAMM:: The most expensive speaker in the Wilson line, this speaker can render massive amounts of detail and any and all possible dynamic transients asked of it. The word 'Slam' is in the name of this speaker for good reason.

Configuration 1
'Wilson X-1 Grand SLAMM'

This is the ultimate configuration for this system design. The dynamics, the texture, the ability to render large, complex works are all taken to the nth degree. It consists of 2 pairs of ML2 monoblocks used in a bi-amp configuration driving the Wilson X1 Grand SLAMM.

Configuration 2
'Wilson WATT/Puppy 7'

This is the reference configuration for this system design.

This system was available for audition at CES 2003.

Configuration 3
'Wilson WATT/Puppy 7'

This system provides a very similar sound to that provided by system Configuration 2 but at a significant cost savings.

This system was available for audition at CES 2003.

Recommended System #2 (Kharma/Lamm)
This is a classic system. Kharma and Lamm Industries have shown together at many high-end shows and these systems are robustly musical and enjoyable in many, many different environments and associated components.

Lamm 18 watt ML2 single-ended triode amplifier: This is felt by many to be the best amplifier in the world. The ultimate in musical accuracy, in natural dynamics.

Lamm 90 watt ML1.1 push/pull tubed amplifier: This amplifier brings most of the naturalness and musicality of the ML2 and adds the ability to drive the speaker to higher SPLs (i.e. it plays louder than the ML2)

Lamm 100 watt class A M1.2 Reference hybrid amplifier
: This amplifier, able to drive any speaker load, is both powerful and naturally musical.

Kharma Ceramique Reference Monitor 3.2: An easy to drive, smaller speaker that may have one of the best, top to bottom balances and coherency of any speaker in the Kharma line excepting the Exquisites.

Kharma Grand Ceramique: One of the larger Kharmas, this easy to drive speaker attempts to add some bass to the wonderful sounds of the smaller Kharmas.

Kharma Exquisite: The best Kharma speaker, and one of the best speakers in the world, this easy to drive speaker has complete coherency, top to bottom, and actually sounds like a point source monitor speaker - but with the dynamics and slam of the biggest and best floor standers.

Configuration 1
'Exquisite'

This configuration, heard with the Walker Gold Proscenium turntable and Lamm L2 preamplifier as a front-end, was truly astonishing in its power and ability to render lifelike orchestras. It consists of 2 pairs of M1.2 Reference monoblocks used in a bi-amp configuration driving the Kharma Exquisite.

This system was available for audition at CES 2002.

Configuration 2
'Grand Ceramique'

This configuration, heard with a CEC transport, DCS DAC and Lamm L2 front-end, is one of those rare, pleasant sounding systems that one can just sink into and relax and enjoy for a lifetime.

This system was available for audition at CES 2002.

Configuration 3
'Ceramique 3.2'

For smaller rooms, this configuration (after the 3.2 is completely broken in) has the ability to render lifelike, musical passages that are utterly convincing in their beauty.

This system was available for audition at Stereophile Home Entertainment 2002 and CES 2003.
