SE-100 MK2 的使用者分享- SE-100 MKII GLORIOUS!
這後級聽起來真的是太棒了！從開箱到現在也不過短短幾天就展現出令人訝異的好聲。除此之外，100 MK2的音場在剛開箱的時候比BAT VK-60(單聲道後級，120w，A類)小，持續run了幾天，在今天早上，音場突然變得寬大，簡直把我嚇傻了。事實上，我一開始還在嘲笑這台小機器。
說真的，C.C.，我不想要喜歡100 MK2，我想要的是Pass Labs的XA 100.5，但是在比較你的後級與Pass Labs的Aleph 2 (單聲道後級，100w, A類，我的現役後級)後，100 MK2真的是太好了，我實在沒有辦法說服我自己花更多錢買Pass。
Pass Labs Aleph 2
需要一些勇氣跟大家說我使用Monarchy Audio 的產品，因為你知道，這個價格實在不算真正的hi-end。當問那些對100 MK2有懷疑的人他們最後一次聽100 MK2是什麼時候，結果才發現他們根本都沒有聽過！非常奇怪，他們還是對100 MK2有個人意見。他們"知道"你產品的價格，所以認為跟那些高價器材是不能比的。無論如何，我知道我聽到什麼，而且我很喜歡這個聲音。請把我的意見放在你的網站上，讓更多人可以知道。

The amps sound fabulous. In just several days they have opened up to reveal astonishing performance. Additionally, at first, the soundstage was so small compared to the BAT VK-60 monoblocks (120 watts, Class A) which the 100's replaced. But this morning the soundstage began to bloom and I sat transfixed at the sound. I was actually laughing at these diminutive upstarts. To be honest, C.C., I didn't really want to like these amps. I really wanted the Pass Labs XA100.5 monoblocks. But in comparing these amps against the Pass Labs Aleph 2's which I've been using since getting these amps, they are so good I just can't rationalize spending more $$ for the Pass products. And I wanted to. That means, again, I'm bowing to your genius and I don't use that word but rarely. But when a $1,000 product so challenges a $5,000 product and, in some instances, actually seems to out-perform the product, well, ....
And to top it off, you're about the kindest and most patient proprietor of high-end products I've ever dealt with. And I've been in this hobby for 40 years and count several high end vendors as clients. It's always the same with you. My wife adores you and pushed me hard to be honest about these products.
It takes courage to admit to people that, yes, I'm using the Monarchy Audio hardware (because, you know, it can't be serious high-end given its price).But then when you inquire of the doubter about when they last listened to the SM-100 MK.II, turns out they haven't listened. Strangely, they still have an opinion. They just "know" that at the asking price, well, it can't be competitive with the higher priced gear. Whatever. I know what I hear and I like it, a lot. Feel free to put this commentary in the user comments section should you so desire.
