ARC Ref. 40
ARC Ref Phono 2 SE
Oracle Delphi Mk V with a Triplanar arm and Van den Hul Frog
ARC DAC 3 MkII with Ayre D-1X as a transport
ARC REF 210 amps
Vandersteen 5A's
Granite Audio cabling and power cords

Thanks so much
Rob
Welcome arcfan

Maybe Chuck (SRT-10 Viper) can jump in here. He owns the Lamm's and REF 40. He has compared the Lamm's to both the REF 250 and another amp. He might have some interesting comments.

I think going direct may be manufacturer depandable thing.

For instance, dCS and Wadia recomment to set up theur volume at max when pre amp is in use. I also noticed that when volume is all the way up at my Puccini the sound is just much better in comparison to half way Puccini & half way at pre-amp

I have a dCS front, too. I have the older Purcell/Delius combo. Soon I hope to add a Lamm L2 to the system, and that is exactly what I've been told, "set up the volume at max when pre amp is in use."

My system is composed of: DCS Delius DCS Purcell ReQuest Media Server (housing 300 movies & 500 CDs in WAV format) Analysis Plus Silver Ovals (ICs & Spkr Cables) PBN Denali Mono Amps (Fully Differential Monos - 900W into 4 ohms) Wilson Watt/Puppy 8s in Mercedes Silver
My system has completely changed since then. My current set up:
Lamm M1.2 Monos
Lamm L2 Preamp
Meitner MA-1 Wilson Sashas - Gen I
Transparent Ref XL Cabling (MM2) all around Median Sooloos Ensemble - DAC
SRA Scuttle 3 & SRA IsoBases for the amps Transparent Power Isolator 8
2 Transparent Power Isolators - one per amp
