"MBL 9011 monoblocks are superior by a
wide margin to any other solidstate
and, frankly, to any other
tube amps Jonathan Valin has auditioned
past or present. The ne plus
ultra of front-to-back transparency,
large- and small-scale dynamics,
low-end extension, detail,
authority (unbelievable!), and
treble speed, detail, and punch,
the 9011s are also blessed
with gorgeous tone color and a
top-to-bottom liquidity that Jonathan Valin
has never before experienced
with transistors. The first
amplifiers Jonathan Valin has heard that
fully combine the signal virtues
of solid-state amps (extension,
resolution, speed, sock) with
those of triode tube amps (liquidity,
rich timbres, and very
low-level harmonic and dynamic
detail), giving you nearly the
whole note of any instrument,
from starting transient to (and
this is a first with solid-state)

"MBL's most powerful amplifier, the Reference 9011, is a tour de force of electronics design and implementation... The 9011 is rated at 440W into 8 ohms, 840 into 4 ohms, or 1390 into 2 ohms. Its "Peak Pulse Power" rating is 5000W into 2 ohms... Each 9011 requires two AC cords for maximum output, and is powered up by flipping as many as three illuminated rear-panel switches, one for each of its three main power transformers; the second and third switches, labeled Boost 2 and Boost 3, are used depending on the speaker load (Boost 3 is recommended for 2 ohm loads). A fourth shielded transformer supplies the voltage-amplification stage... the 9011's huge power reserves meant that, at all times, it loafed while driving the relatively sensitive MAXX 3s, though even they require a good deal of current to be driven well. Not a problem for the 9011s... the MBL was simply "there" in that whatever sonic character it had was not immediately obvious. The positive aspect of this plenty of nothing was a complete absence of "electronic... I confess to having never heard an amplifier that was so lacking in character as to be completely invisible. If there's higher praise you can heap on a piece of electronics, I don't know what that might be... the 9011's bass response driving the Wilson Audio MAXX 3s was complete in terms of extension, texture, and finesse...the 9011's midrange was perfectly suited to the extremes: rich, almost creamy-full...Tonally, the 9011 produced a neutral full-range balance with top-to-bottom transient performance... The 9011's overall sound was more like class-A, and it ran very cool, as it should... The 9011s' presentations of space and dynamics were what you'd expect to hear from big, powerful monoblocks; combine that with pitch-black backgrounds, and the result was a SOPHISTICATED, NON-ELECTRONIC-SOUNDING-AMPLIFIER that simply got out of the way and let the music flow... the sound produced by the 9011s driving the Wilson Audio MAXX 3s could be described as opulent, full, musical, and totally lacking in electronic artifacts... the bottom end was well extended, taut, muscular, even punchy. The top end was as described in my review of the original 101E: effortless, open, crystalline in the best sense of the word, and with exceptional transient clarity and cleanness.... clean, extended, airy top octaves, appropriately fast transients, and a fully expressed bottom end. Driving the MBL 101E speakers, the Reference 9011s sounded like what a high-current, DC-to-megahertz-bandwidth amplifier should sound like... ORG has released a spectacularly natural-sounding two-disc set of a 1962 recording of Clifford Curzon, accompanied by George Szell and the London Symphony, performing Brahms's Piano Concerto 1 (45rpm LP, Decca/ORG) . It's one of the few times Szell was well recorded—that hardly happened in Cleveland with the Columbia engineers. The 9011s re-created the sensation of being in the legendary Kingsway Hall space where the recording was made. The sense of atmosphere and air seeped around the images of instruments, particularly the piano...The MBL 9011 is a powerful, technologically sophisticated,... While it was designed to be used in an all-MBL Reference system, which is where it clearly excelled, it had the power and current-delivery capacity to effectively drive any loudspeaker that's ever been or is likely to be made... you'll find relief in the 9011s' richer, creamier, more harmonically saturated center, the enormity of their soundstage, their ability to re-create large-scale atmospherics, and the amount of weight they can toss around with ease "
