Other Notes: "Not every solid-state amplifier can successfully drive the original Quad ESL electrostatic loudspeaker—especially not wide-bandwidth amps, which are flustered by the crazy dip in the ESL's impedance curve way up high. The Moon qualifies as a wide-bandwidth amp, yet it drove the Quads without complaint. In fact, the i-7 sounded better with the Quads than at least one otherwise lovely tube amplifier I've tried (itself a subject I'll return to in next month's "Listening"). The i-7 let the Quads sing with all the emotion they're known for, and kept their bass panels on a tight leash: The floor toms and electric bass in Lee Feldman's "Give Me My Money," from his brilliant I've Forgotten Everything (CD, Urban Myth UM-114-2), were tight'n'tuneful—much more so than when I listened to the same cut with my Quad II amps doing the honors—and the big bass drum in Michael Tilson Thomas's very nice recording of Mahler's Symphony 3 (SACD, San Francisco Symphony 821936-0003-2) never got out of control, although I suspect it wanted to." - Stereophile
