I am not surprised awsmone. The Quad 57 and the Lamm 1.2 are synergistic. The Lamm 1.2 is also synergistic with the Quad 63.
I found that the Lamm M1.2 is one of the most "synergistic" amplifiers I have owned within its power limits. Several speakers I tried with it, including the SoundLab's with Torroid 2 the and the Mini II's sounded really enjoyable - but I do not listen to rock or electronica.
