CES & THE Show 2014 • Hot Product

Vladimir Lamm slowly and deliberately introduces new versions of his existing products. The LP2 Deluxe phono stage had been in production for more than ten years when the new LP2.1 Deluxe ($8690) replaced it. While the two units look identically unadorned the LP2.1. . .

. . .uses the 6C3P and 6C45P-E tubes that Lamm introduced in his reference phono stage, the three-chassis LP1 Signature. It also uses circuits introduced in Lamm's ML2.2 and ML3 amplifiers, along with a new material for its circuit boards. Gain is slightly greater than that for the LP2, 60dB for the moving-coil input and 40dB for the moving-magnet.
