Now before anybody starts making commercials for FM acoustics let me tell you a story:
A good friend of mine (engineer and md of a recording studio) sent his FM amplifier to switzerland to get it back with heavy dents in the chassis and same tone problem as before.(Impertinent bill included)
These amps have enclosed modules on them which obviously were the problem of the tone fault.
Kind of big opamps they don´t want anybody to open...

They´re damn expensive amps for what they are and even years ago you were better off getting a Bryston or similar.(for the price of the FM you could have got a few!)
I won´t even start talking about the choices you´ve got today.
The studio was setup by financiers (audio laymans) so you can´t blame them for getting the FM.

Nothing to recommend if you ask me.
(I´m a repair engineer myself)

Hi, Joensd,

While he is still here, do you want me to tell him this problem? Could you be more specific so he can remember the incident?

Perhaps I should inflate the price of my modules by 50 times then deliver them myself? Pot them. Where do you live?

I'll sit down and and be genuinely interested, I promise!

Cheers,
Greg

Just curious, has anyone here listened to a well set up system with FM Acoustics amplification (preamps, power amps)?

Personally, I don't begrudge him charging so much (the poor fellow has to pay for his Enzo). It's not a world I live, each nutter to his own etc.

Just wondering what it does with recorded music. Nice? Ordinary? Soulless perfection? Something completely different?

Deon
