More fun than…
“I don’t know of an amp I have had more fun with or one that has put a smile on my face as many times as the Stellar M1200s did. When I take off my audiophile reviewer hat and sit down and crank up the music, they succeed in providing hours of pleasure. I normally keep 2 or 3 amps around to rotate in my systems, and you can be sure the M1200s will continue to be there.”
What a great quote from Ken Redmond, the Audio Beatnick. And yes, it’s about fun but sometimes even more important, it’s about performance.
Stereophile’s Michael Fremer just wrote:
“The M1200’s ability to couple with, control, and drive the woofers of my Wilson Alexx loudspeakers matched that of any amplifier I’ve had here, including my reference darTZeel NHB-468 and Boulder’s 2150, both of which are way more costly.”
Have you taken a look at the cost of Fremer’s reference darTZeel NHB-468 or Boulder’s 2150? They’re the price of a small house or a few expensive cars.
The Stellar M1200 that comes so close in performance to these expensive beasts prompted Michael to write “…what these amps did so well was so much damn fun and what they didn’t do so well had to be tracked down with a sonic microscope.”
Considering the M1200s are 1/20th the cost….Need we say more?
