|This past weekend I was able to have an extended listen to the revised Melchiades amplifers. My previous listening session left something to be desired with midbass punch and dynamics. Had I not have heard mini me it may not have been noticeable. But mini me had drive and mid bass punch that made blues and jazz recordings extremely satisfying in a way that full Macondo system could not capture. That is why I drew the analogy of David (mini me) slaying Goliath (Macondo).
My host was already familiar with the inadequacy of Macondo in this particular area of performance and went to work to remedy the problem. The results were beyond just satisfactory. Now the system has mid bass crunch, dynamics and excellent texture that was wonderfully rewarding in every way.
