ATLAudio Posted December 3, 2016 Share Posted December 3, 2016 I was using the best Emotiva with the closest power output as the LM for price comparisons. It seems you made a lot of assumptions about how to properly troubleshoot and or repair the monoblocks, to say nothing of your home wiring. If not Emotiva, there are countless models costing much much less than the LM, and you've yet to answer my questions regarding this amp's claims for the money. There are hundreds of happy customers with Emotiva amps and Heritage. I wouldn't consider them the best choice, but certainly not bad. I'd not be terribly surprised if the LM sounds better, but I'm certain that the best sound for Cornwalls is in an amp far cheaper and more accurate. Like I said, I would demand to know why I'd need to spend thousands and thousands of dollars for the LM, and if someone asked I'd gladly tell them. I think McIntosh, SS or valve, are also audio jewelry for the most part. So I'm not sure where you were going there. As for amps for sensitive speakers; the Cornwalls are 100 watt RMS. Amplifier technology is a mature technology, and it doesn't cost that much to purchase a 100 watt amp which will amplify the signal from the source and nothing else; allowing your speakers to do the singing. What's silly is investing in a revealing and accurate set of speakers and spending far more money on an amplifier which perverts that revealing and accurate reproduction.
