Latest reviewer's comment from Francisco Duran's review of the Model 100. Upon using the NSMT modified Lepai amplifer to drive the Model 100, Francisco Duran says:
"I heard an accurate tonal balance, natural timbres, nice decay of instruments and I could play the system as loud as I wanted with this little amp in the system thanks to the efficiency of the woofer/tweeter section of the M-100. Kicking in the subwoofers was icing on the cake. For sheer irony and bang for the buck, this was the best amp I used with the M-100's. Save yourself some money and invest in some kind of remote for the little Lepai because it doesn't come with one. While you're at it go and tell the emperor he is naked. This little amp can cook and it thoroughly embarrassed the hell out of the amps I have laying around my house."

MasterSource speaker cable in an additional mod to further enhance the bass and imaging performance and high frequency definition of our modified Lepai amplifier.
"The MasterSource loudspeaker cable is the perfect match for the NSMT modified Lepai amplifier. The improved tonal color, resolution and dynamics really show off what this little wonder amp is capable of. Recommended!"

"I have had more fun listening to music through my NSMT modified Lepai Tripath amplifier than I have had from just about any other solid-state amplifier..."
Francisco Duran, Positive Feedback
“...hard to believe."
(Positive Feedback first review, Issue 66)
“When NSMT tells you on their website that 'We have modified the amplifier to improve its bass performance, to improve the definition of its soundstage, improve its dynamic punch, and to improve its high frequency detail and its musicality,' you better believe it.”
(Positive Feedback second review, Issue 69)
"The Lepai LP-2020A+ NSMT modified amp sells for around $135 with the upgraded power supply. The stock Lepai LP-2020A+ amp sells for around $20. The difference is like going from a Honda to a Lamborghini. The modified Lepai amp has its place in the world of audiophilia and I believe will become a future t-amp classic. Recommended."

"After hooking the Modified Leppy to my KEF Q1s, I turned on the power switch.
Wow ! It rocks ! The sound stage is really awesome ! Can immediately feel it being
superior to my old Denon amp in my current setup. Am loving it !
Thank you NSMT" (customer, Singapore)
