From the factory — and recommended reading:

Lamm Industries builds a comparatively small line of carefully curated, meticulously designed electronics. Each piece is really a treasure, designed by Vladimir Lamm and hand built in Lamm’s Brooklyn, NY factory. Lamm’s hybrid amplifiers combine the ease of use associated with a purely solid-state design, with the verisimilitude to the original performance and emotion for which Lamm is known. We are honored to have been dealers for Lamm since 2003; if you have questions about how these M1.2 Reference might suit your system, please send us an email ( or give Neli a call or text: 303.546.6503.

M1.2 Reference, packed up and ready to ship

We have very fond memories of Montreal, which we attended and photographed in 2006, when it was called Festival Son et Image:

A few years ago, the founders of this show transferred ownership to the Chester Group, an organization that puts on several hifi shows around the world.

10 days prior to this year’s exhibition, we received an email stating that it’s been “deferred”:

I mean, wowee. If we were exhibiting, I would be having a fit.

But now, the original founders, Michel Plante and Sarah Tremblay, have picked up the ball and rescued the situation and the Show Will Go On.

Given the 11th hour announcements here, they’ve got all the pertinent info up on Facebook (search for Montreal Salon Audio):

Montreal is a truly beautiful city, and this is a wonderful show that deserves support. If you are anywhere in the region, I would suggest you go.

Audio Note will be there, with cellist Vincent Belanger, accompanied by an Audio Note system. If another reason to go was even needed, this is not to be missed.
