Thank you for the reply , but in term of the preamp sound quality, are they exactly same ? Or L2 is better ?
I've never read such an enthusiastic review about any product: https://www.stevehuffphoto.com/2019/12/07/hifi-review-vinnie-rossi-l2i-se-integrated-amp-review-with-dac-a-magical-experience-awaits/
This amp is no joke. When I first heard the cost of this amp I knew there was no way I would be able to ever acquire one. I also had no idea that it was as good as it actually is. I can say that after listening and listening and listening more now I have realized this integrated amp with DAC is well worth the asking price. It has muscle but also finesse. It pulls details yet does so with elegance and a human touch. It is an expensive amp but sounds every bit of that expense, and that is not always the case with high end audio. It’s an investment but only for those who keep their gear long term. This is not a piece you will buy, tire of in a year and sell. It is a lifetime piece IMO.This amp took my 30 years of HiFi experience, threw it away and showed me what a well designed “cost no object” integrated amp could sound like. As good as I thought some of my previous systems were, this is next level, for me at least.The DAC module in this amp (a $3500 extra) is also without question the best DAC I have heard, and yes, DACS sound very different from one another when you start to get into the high end ($2000 and up range). My experience with serious DAC’s range from a PS Audio Direct Stream to a Chord Qutest. The dac in the Rossi amp is much much better in my system.
beautiful turn back the clock look..congrats!!!Now you have to get a TT !!
Got my L2iSE last night and spent the morning setting up and tweaking. Absolutely spooky soundstage. I did a double take and turned my head because it sounded like the sound was coming from behind me. I have never experienced that before. I'll elaborate tomorrow; kids are melting down right now and I don't want to lose my photo post

Great setup! Are you able to speak more to the sonic upgrade from LIO to L2iSE? Considering the upgrade but it’s quite a financial stretch. Thanks for any thoughts you can share!
