"Unlike solid-state preamplifiers like the Krell KRC-2, the M3 will not inject tenacious transients and edgy imaging that some of us favor. Retrospectively, the M3 contributed in its ultimate tonal accuracy and timbral totality, something that never happened in my system before and was incredibly striking when it did. Even when driving solid-state power amplifiers, like the McCormack DNA-1 Deluxe and Monarchy Audio SM-70 monoblocks, the M3 was able to transmute it’s own tonal complexities and timbral integrity to a large degree throughout all types of music."
