LAMM ML3 *Signature*
 
Alright you GM70 fans, start $$$aving. Lamm has built a GM70 SET featuring no less than, among other things, tubes, filter chokes, a delay circuitry, multi-turn potentiometers, some gold plated stuff and a price tag of (wait for it) $126,290. Preliminary, that is. With tubes, filter chokes, a delay circuitry, multi-turn potentiometers and some gold plated stuff, shoulda made it a cool million.

Read all about it.

Hmmm at that price point would you want a triode amp or this

neither, i'd want an Acura NSX.

then with the leftover money i'd mod the car and also build a ridiculous pair of KT-88 monoblocks with independent, regulated plate and screen supplies, the finest toroidal output and power transformers, and granite chassis :) and then a huge isolation toroid in the cabinet beneath the amps. and all the music i could ever want.

I'm gonna hold the horses until Romy the Cat buys one.

Don't forget the multi-turn potentiometers.

Hey-Hey!!!,
I think I'd put up an additional $40k and get a Ford GT. The NSX is a bit 'off the rack'.

But consider how long that amount would fund DIY projects...a process that would result in better sound and greater entertainment.

To Lamm's credit, they are not offering 'Laboratory Only' power ratings like dH does with their 50Watt claims. Low production stuff like this has got to be expensive. I wonder if their margin is the same or smaller than on their 'attainable' gear.
cheers,
Douglas

Dept of ya gotta be kidding!! :confused: :confused: :confused:

I noticed a "patent" listed on one of the product pages.

5470795

Look it up.

I expected a patent on a circuit?
Nope.

This is a "patent" on using stock connectors to connect to the pins of a plastic flat pak transistor's leads!!! :eek:
:eek: :eek: :eek: :bigeyes: :bigeyes: :bigeyes:
:bigeyes: :bigeyes: :hot: :hot:
:smash: :smash: :smash: :smash: :smash:

Say what??

Yet another in the "everything is patentable if someone didn't patent it first"???

OMG!!

well, that's one bit of 'technology' that is contributing to a slightly higher price. Now if they'd patent 11 more things, I could see having to pay $126k for it...:)
cheers,
Douglas

Hey, that's worth at least an additional buck or two. Now, add in your dealer markup, and we are talking big bucks...$4, $5, maybe even $6 bucks before it's all over. Add in intellectual property, and voila...we're looking at $15 for that little diity....

...x2...they are monoblocks after all.
