    I had the pleasure of spending the last two days with Jeremy and Tara from MBL.

    Does it equal the Diablo 300 in sound? That seems to be the real sweet price point for Integrateds of that caliber.

    Oh man, totally different. Diablo 300 is a BEAST. A sledge hammer Integrated with massive size soundstage, deep freaking bass and a dark rich tone.

    The MBL is buttery smooth on top. It sounds “right” and controlled. Polite. Balanced top to bottom.

    That sounds great Mike. The combination appears to have wonderful spatiality and a smooth non-fatiguing tone - the type of sound you could just listen to all day. Whats the list price of the system as shown?
    Borresen Acoustics Loudspeakers, Borresen Model 01 Compact monitor loudspeakers with Ansuz Darkz T2s Supreme resonance control, Audio Video Manufaktur GmbH (AVM) Inspiration amplifier & streamer, Innuos Zen MKII music server, Ansuz Acoustics cables & accessories. Please visit my system thread hosted on Audioshark for more details. Disclosure: The author is materially connected to Ansuz, Aavik & Borresen Acoustics via friendship with an owner.
