11 The Absolute Sound gives the Product of the Year Award to the ML2.2 single-ended amplifier (issue 239, January 2014).

There's no other word to describe Lamm's 18W ML2.2 but "magical." This mono amp has the ability to conjure up a striking impression of actually being in the presence of real instruments and voices. Although the ML2.2 has more palpable immediacy than any other amplifier RH has heard, it never sounds forward or forced. Unlike many other single-ended triode designs, the ML2.2 isn't just about the midrange at the expense of the frequency extremes. The Lamm has a neutral balance coupled with excellent bottom-end oomph and treble extension. Allowing the ML2.2 to achieve its potential requires pairing it with a high-sensitivity loudspeaker, preferably one with a flat impedance curve. Its 18W can only go so far. (The ML2.2 makes even the best solid-state amplifiers sound somewhat flat and dimensionless by comparison.) This is an amplifier that every audiophile should hear. (RH, issue 230)

1 Lamm introduces a new product, the LP2.1 phono preamplifier.

Model LP2.1 is the next generation of the original LP2. The LP2.1 features the following upgrades and modifications in comparison to the LP2:

  • introduction of many technical solutions that had been implemented in the LP1 Signature (just like the ML2.2 single-ended power amplifier derived many of its technical solutions from the ML3 Signature power amplifier);
  • introduction of the new tubes: 6C3P and 6C45P-E (same tubes that are used in the LP1 Signature phono preamplifier), and corresponding adjustments in the circuitry;
  • significantly reduced output impedance;
  • new parts that had been developed by various manufacturers since the introduction of the LP2;
  • new pc-board material
  • super low noise power transformer

M1.2 Reference amps in Class A for solid-state amps

"The 110W M1.2 with tube front end and MOSFET output stage, comprehensive short-circuit protection, and high/low impedance settings, offered 'unflinching honesty in conveying the true nature of the music that passed through it,' said Paul Bolin. 'Utterly continuous and coherent from top to bottom,' the M1.2 combined resolution and transparency with harmonic completeness, timbral richness, and glow. Jonathan Atkinson concurs. Compared to the Classe CT-M600 and MBL 9007, the Lamm had a more robust, less delicate sound, but nevertheless impressed JA with its three-dimensional soundstaging and midrange richness. 'This ia great amplifier,'JA decided. 'Highly recommended'."

ML2.2 amps in Class A for tube amps

"Like its predecessor, the ML2.1, the 19W ML2.2 is a single-ended-triode monoblock power amplifier with a 6C33C indirectly heated power tube. Other tubes include two 6N6P, one 6AK5, one 5651, and one 12AX7. Refinements over the ML2.1 include a new input circuit, new power ransformer, five power-supply filter chokes instead of two, revised printed-circuit board, and upgrades of various parts. Measuring 16" W by 8.25" H by 20.375" D, weighing 81 lbs, and with 14 tubes total (all of which must be installed and adjusted by the user), the ML2.2s require careful setup. ...the Lamm combined superb spatial and tempral performance with rich texture and tone color, said AD. "An extraordinary product," he concluded (Vol. 36, No. 4)."

ML3 Signature amps in Class A for tube amps

"Rated to deliver 32W, Lamm's flagship design is a zero-global-feedback, class-A monoblock with a single-ended-triode output stage and an outboard power supply. It uses one 12AX7, four 6N30P-DR, and one direct-heated GM70 triode transmitter tube, and its assortment of premium internal components include: military-grade Dale metal-film resistors, Caddock power-film resistors, Cornell-Dubilier and United Chemi-Con electrolytic capacitors, and Electrocube, Elcon, and Roederstein film caps. While the ML3 sounded "lusher and bloomier than life," it produced natural attacks and generous sustain, and had an airy, extended top end, said MF. "Cost and value for money aside, the Lamm Industries ML3 Signature is among a handful of the most pleasurable-sounding amplifiers I've ever heard," he concluded. JA noted good measured performance for an amplifier with a single-ended output stage. (Vol. 36, No. 9)."

LL2.1 preamp in Class A for two-channel preamps

"Line-level preamp with one 6X4, two 12AU7A, and two 6DJ8 tubes. Art Dudley was most impressed by the original version of the Lamm's ability to remain free from overhang and distortion while remaining true to the color, texture, and body of recorded material. He explained that, because of the LL2's speed -- 'the thing's ability to respond to a signal, amplify it with great faithfulness, then get the hell out of the way' -- it gave music more body, more feel, and especially more movement.' It seemed as if performances were actually taking place in the listening room rather than simply being retold. AD: 'Judged for its musicality, the quality of its parts and construction, and its sheer design ingenuity, the Lamm LL2 is worth every penny.' In response to requests for a lower-gain version of the LL2, Vladimir Lamm redesigned the preamplifier's circuit to incorporate 15dB of switchable attenuation. Compared to AD's reference Shindo Masseto, the LL2.1 sounded cleaner and more open, with a tendency to pull voices farther out from the mix and a better ability to unravel dense musical passages."

1Stereophile (September 2013) -- ML3 Signature review by Mike Fremer.
1The Absolute Sound gives the Golden Ear Award to ML2.2 power amplifier.

At one time if you told me that an 18W amplifier that cost 37k would be at the top of my list of desirable amplifiers, I would have thought you crazy. But that's what the Lamm ML2.2 is -- the world reference in immediacy, timbre, and musical communication. There is, however, a big caveat to this statement: You must partner the ML2.2 with a loudspeaker of high sensitivity and a benign load. Although the ML2.2 doesn't exhibit the bass and dynamic limitations of most other SETs, it is nonetheless significantly restricted in which loudspeakers its 18W will drive. This said, with the right loudspeaker the ML2.2 is simply magical. The music just exists in front of you, unencumbered by any electronic sonic signature. The ML2.2 makes even the best solid-state amplifiers sound somewhat flat and dimensionless by comparison. This is an amplifier that every audiophile should hear (review by Robert Harley in issue 230).
