Vladimir Lamm likes to show his electronics with both Verity Audio and Wilson Audio loudspeakers. He's been doing it for years. It is a feather in both speaker manufacturers' hats. This year he showed off his main system comprised of the LP1 Signature phono stage ($33,790), LL1 Signature linestage ($42,790), and ML3 Signature mmonoblocks ($139,490/pair) with the Verity Audio Lohengrin II S loudspeakers ($120,000/pair). The turntable was the TtechDAS Air Force 1. Toss is $82,600 of Kubala Sosna Elations cables and he walked away with the most expensive system at CES.
Lamm scaled back his second room this year pairing an L2 Reference linestage ($15,890) with M1.2 Reference hybrid monoblocks ($26,990/pair) driving the Wilson Alexias ($48,500/pair). The good news for the rest of us is that Lamm introduced a brand new phono stage -- the LP2.1 -- clocking in at $8,690. I suspect it is more than just a slice of the ultra high-end.
