"For the customer," says Lau, "this type of thing does not happen too often."
"Even so, the SE-40 needs to be put in the right system and played with the right music. It requires fairly efficient loudspeakers -- it struggled at times with the Magneplaner .5/QR but matched beautifully with the new Martin-Logan Aerius i -- and a steady dose of jazz, folk or chamber music. For the brute power demands of heavy rock and large orchestral works, stick with a solid- state amplifier. But if you've owned only solid-state, you'll be amazed how much more lifelike the SE-40 sounds in the right setup." - Kevin Hunt, Courant
