Initial impression of pm11s3 is really good. Never knew that usher dancer mini2 can sound so 'open'

Amazing bro... you bought all three.. a Loooonnnngggg way from your 2k for a HT budget ;)


Anyways, I think you will be pleasantly surprised with the drive that the PM 11 can provide..


Did you get it 2nd hand too?

Hi pete, missed your mayday open house session as I was overseas on that long weekend :(
I am selling my MF soon.

Before selling MF away, do some comparison. Like to try new things :)

I am very surprised with the capabilities of this amp. Drive the usher effortlessly.
Of course when use it as preamp for the bryston, it is another level of goodness.
No wonder u are keeping PM11S3 for long time.

The PM 11 is solid, as an amp, and a pre-amp.
If you wish to save some money, you can sell the MF, the Bryston and use the PM 11 with your AVR. Good enough, and the same remote will switch on both devices. Add a NA 11 and you can web control your PM 11.


The PM 11 is smooth, but revealing enough that when you change cables, you will find even more improvement... I haven't found it lacking in power actually, even though it has 'only' 100W on paper..

BTW, pm me if you find another PM 11. I might get one more!
It will last many years... built like a tank - at 28kg, it may weight more than the Bryston..

We didn't get any reply from you on that weekend :(

Totally agree that this is a solid amp! I think I will keep the Bryston. Really like the sound from this power amp. Will sell the MF.

I only saw ur msg when I got back which already past the mayday weekend. :(

U may buy another one to bridge?

Ya. Bryston is a keeper. This is the SST version. Eager to know how the cube version sounds like.

You just need to match it with a good pre amp.

The PM 11 can be daisy-chained to form a HT system. But that's too expensive for me.. but if there's an affordable one for sale, I might consider building another system around it..
Good amps last a long time..

One caveat of this amp, P. Direct in and pre out don't work at the same time
