Bamberg's Beauties

Philip Bamberg's Bamberg Audio was playing the Series 5 TMW ($8800/pair) and displaying the Steries 2 TMM ($4800/pair) when I entered. The 5 is a 3-way design with a 375W active woofer, parametric EQ, and separate monitor. It is said to descend flat to 25Hz, and down to 18Hz –6dB.

Paired with Modwright's LS 1000 preamp and KWA 100 amp, a Transporter ($3995) and Uberbuss ($995), the system was producing fine, controlled bass, and a lovely midrange glow. Though on a jazz recording featuring a piano of unknown pedigree, the high notes were a bit tinkly, the sound overall was most inviting.
