EMM Labs' Mighty Amps
Shoehorned into a small space, and paired with Sony SS-AR1 loudspeakers ($27,000/pair) via Kimber Select 3038 pure silver speaker cable and 1136 pure silver interconnects, the amps sounded very nice and smooth on an IsoMike recording of Mendelssohn's Octet by players from the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields. Too smooth, in fact; the highs lacked spark. Given that I've had problem with the sound of this recording at a previous show, I can't help wondering, in retrospect, if I would have been better off asking to hear something else. Here's hoping I can audition the MTRX monoblocks again, soon.
