    I’ve always loved MBL’s and frankly, they’re exceeding expectations right out of the box. Amps too. Just a big wall of sound. The magic of the melon!

    Hi Mike,

    Truly amazing sound right out of the box! These are world class sounding speakers. I can only imagine how much better they will get after full break in. With the Select II DAC, MBL amps and MBL 101e Mk2 speakers, you are on top of the mountain, my friend. Enjoy the view!

    Best,
    Ken

    I really like the looks, they’re something special. The sound must be super, based on what I heard in Munich.

    Congrats, Mike!
