Eficion's Master Loudspeaker
Given that the AMT likes a fast amp, the company's Peigen JiangPJ to those who find Chinese pronunciation difficultprefers Plinius electronics. Here the Plinius M8 preamp ($5150) and SA103 400W monoblock amplifiers ($20,300/pair) were mated with a Pioneer BDP-531312 CD player modded by Z-Infinity and Schitt BiFrost DAC ($450). Cables were unspecified and unspecial.
The system threw a large soundstage that was very warm, with pleasingly three-dimensional images. The sound, primarily on instrumentals, was gorgeous. Experience tells me that, with a superior DAC and, between the speaker's two modules, Stillpoints rather than cheap kitchen liner, the sound would have been airier, more transparent, and even more three-dimensional.
