User feedback on the Emerald 100.2SE amp

1) I think the EP 100.2SE amp is broken in or at least close so when I finally had the both the amp and preamp last night for the first time, even my wife said," That sounds better than your old amp."

Actually it was a profound difference. I was blown away by the soundstaging and detail. I couldn't believe the sound coming thru my 3.1's.
Looks like I had good taste to trust your judgment. A thousand thanks for turning me on to these great components.

2) Hello Walter, Just wanted to share some thoughts on the 100SE/Dual Core combo. I have had a lot of equipment pass through my home the past 35yrs and I have never been able to get the full potential out of anything I have had due to a very tough room. When I saw your special on the above combo, mainly the room correction I decided to give it a try. I must say I have been very pleased. There was quite a bit of a learning process with the dual core to get to its full potential (at least for me) actually I’m not really there yet. But anyway I must say the sound I’m getting has finally gotten me to the point of just enjoying the music! I am extremely happy with the 100Se. I was a little concerned with it being class D not having heard any that I was very pleased with in the past . I replaced a Hegel H300 which was a very good integrated but the 100Se has great slam its sounds more powerful than the 250 watt Hegel! It also has a much wider sound stage. Two areas  important to me. These comments  are with the correction bypassed, with the correction it just takes it to another level. Again just a few comments I wanted to share.
Thanks for the recommendation, Irwin.

3) Walter, Hi, absolutely love my new 100.2 SE amp. It's far better than I was hoping for, I knew your amp would sound better than  my Emotiva XPA-2 after hearing it at RMAF12, but I wasn't prepared for how much better it would make my whole system sound. The imaging is lifelike and solid, grounded, planted firmly in place. I feel like I could reach out and touch the performers and instruments. The soundstage extends completely around me sounding like I have surround speakers behind me, especially with movie soundtracks. Everything sounds so real. I'm hearing the subtleties, nuances and textures I've only heard in live music (my reference), and  very occasionally on well set up high end systems.  It's super transparent and majorly musical. My food and alcohol expenditures are through the roof with all the musicians coming over and playing for me and hanging out. And this is with my Focal 806V's and 2 subs, I sold my EP CS-3's to a friend who can’t believe what he's hearing, and am saving for the new CS2.3's, can't wait. Of course the power regenerator and PS AUDIO PerfectWave MKII DAC you sold me are feeding the magic also. I thank you, Walter, you have helped me buy a system that exceeds most systems I've ever heard in my life, at any cost, in creating true live sounding, fully room filling music in my small trailer or medium and large rooms.  Your Emerald Physic speakers are what I've been looking for, for many years and your amps complete the package, and provide a live, musical sound, beyond description that I could never ever afford with any other system. I'm definitely buying one more amp and maybe 3.

4) Walter--OK, thanks. I'll just give you my thoughts on the amp in case that's helpful. I had a Response Audio modified Jolida tube amp that I really liked but I was getting sick of dealing with tubes. also, since I listen alot, I wanted to try and make my system as energy efficient as possible. When I read that some of the "class-d" amps had tube like sound AND hyper efficiency I decided to give that technology a whirl. I first tried a Rawson gainclone DIY-ish (forget what chip it used) amp but found it life-less. I then got a Mardis modified Trends Tripath amp and mostly loved it. Got the upgrade bug and got the PSA Audio HCA-2 and heard improvements but also heard some things I didn't like, mostly that it wasn't dead quiet through my high efficiency speakers and somehow it just sounded too powerful (i'm not quite sure how else to put that). To my ears there was a sense power that was above and beyond the music. What I really like about the Emerald Physics amp it has the tube like sound of the modified Trends and is just as quiet yet has way more MUSICAL power, a greater sense of air, better center fill, and just plain better conveys the aspects of real music that are most important to me when listening recorded music. One last observation is that I REALLY like how McIntosh gear does percussion but in other ways aren't totally enamored of the Mac sound. I have a MAC preamp that seems to deliver that great percussion with almost any power amp I hook it up to but otherwise I prefer my Sonic Euphoria TVC passive preamp. Somehow, with the Sonic Euphoria hooked up to the Emerald Physics EP100.2 I get that Mac percussion sound that I like so much! Anyway i'm very happy with the EP

5) WOW! Does this 100.2SE amp sound great! Just been listening a little while playing
the new Thievery Corporation album and it runs circles around my VTL. Bass
is more extended ( no surprise there) but MUCH faster! It responds well to good
power filtering ahead of it and works even better plugged into my PS Audio
Power Plant Premiere AC Regenerator (something I couldn't do with my VTL) Can't wait to
hear how it sounds once it's burned in for awhile!
 
6) I have about 200 hours on the amps. Here is my opinion,
how can you turn a pair of speakers into a 5 speaker home theater?
Buy a pair if emerald physics 100.2se!
I hooked them up to my pair of Magnepan 3.6 speakers. I had been using either a Bryson 4b or Rogue audio 60 tube amp.
What happened was surprising and amazing. The speakers turned into 5!
They opened up and shot music in several directions. Front, side and yes even rear!
I played CDs and DVDs through them and forgot that it was not a home theater set up because the sound became 3d holographic!
This has to be heard to be believed. I welcome anyone to listen to them at my home

7) Hi Walter,
 
I am eagerly awaiting news on when you will be shipping the EP-X speakers (I'm on the pre-order list).
 
In the meantime, I wanted to let you know how much I'm enjoying the pair EP100.2 SE's I picked up from you at T.H.E. Show in Newport Beach, CA. I have had various amplifiers in my system over the years, from tubes to solid state. But I never thought I would consider Class D until I heard your amps at the show. My system consists of various pieces that I swap in and out based on the my mood and the content I'm playing:
 

  • Pro-Ject RPM 9.2 Evolution Turntable
  • Audio Technica AT33EV Moving Coil Cartridge
  • Ray Samuels Audio F-117, The Nighthawk MC/MM Phono Stage
  • Marantz AV-7005 AV Preamp
  • Audio Research LS-25 Preamp
  • Synology Diskstation as DLNA music source
  • Hafler 9505 Diablo Stereo Power Amp
  • Quick Silver Audio V4 Tube Monoblock Amps
  • Magnepan 3.5/R Speakers
  • PSB Platinum T6 Speakers
  • Tannoy Reveal Monitors (Original Version)
  • Kimber Select cables throughout

 
Since placing the EP100.2 SE's in my system, my other amps have become redundant. I get the slam of solid-state with the sweetness of tubes from mid-range on up. But come to think of it, I can't even call these new amps "sweet" because that implies a traditional flavor of sound that I've always associated with electronics in general. These amps are more neutral yet never cold or harsh. They present a lot of detail but again, never sound etched in any way. The detail is natural and non-fatiguing. Micro & macro-dynamics are also first class, which benefits both music and movies. The music makes you tap your toes, while movies make you jump out of your seat.
 
They are also capable of easily driving my Magnepans. I've had good results with both Hafler & Quick Silver, but each amp had its strengths and weaknesses. With the EP100.2 SE's, there is no compromise. Plenty of current for bass yet the highs remain natural and highly resolved.
 
I even got some unsolicited praise from my family that came over to watch a movie. The only change in the system was the EP100.2 SE's had replaced the Hafler 9505. After the movie was over, I noticed some members of my family looking around the room. When I asked what they were looking for, they all asked: "Where are you new subwoofers?" I have never owned nor liked subwoofers. They have always sounded detached and non-integrated in every system I've heard. With these new amps, I don't ever need subwoofers. I get great sound from top to bottom.
 
I could go on and on, regarding buzz words like imaging, coherence, blah, blah, blah. But these amps just need to be heard to be appreciated. Great job on these amps, if you can get the word out, you will sell tons of them (if you aren't already).
