HE 2001: Many Paths to Sonic Bliss
By Barry Willis


JMlab's Utopias in the Lamm Industries room occupy the other end of the hugeness scale. A J-10 favorite, they sounded marvelous driven by Lamm ML-2 monoblocks. Source was a dCS SACD transport, feeding a dCS Purcell/Elgar combo, in turn feeding a Lamm Reference preamp. FIM Gold cabling linked it all together. I neglected to calculate the system's total retail cost, but suffice it to say that it's out of reach for all but the most upscale audiophiles.

Stereophile: Jonathan Scull on Cost-No-Object Electronics

Lamm Industries ran either their 18W ML2 single-ended amps ($29,290/pair) or their ML1 push-pull amps, good for 90W ($19,990/pair) and made beautiful sound through JMLab Utopias.  Interestingly, the most requested amp was the lower-powered ML2, which evidently did the 92 dB-sensitive Utopias proud.  (The dCS CD/SACD transport prototype, Elgar DAC, Purcell upsampler, Zoethecus v.5/R racks and amps stands, and FIM gold Series cables didn't hurt either.)  September 2001 issue (Vol. 24/no. 9), page 67
