Thanks @matthewpatrick for the helpful post! Any other L2iSE upgrades out there who can provide their impressions of the upgrade? Thank you!
The DHT preamplifier stage in the L2i-SE is very similar in design to the one used in the L2 Signature Preamplifier, but not exactly the same. The L2 Signature Preamplifier offers the lowest possible background noise, as it does not contain the L2i-SE's two additional power supplies for the dual-mono speaker output stages. Vinnie
Hi Vinnie,Does it mean that L2i-SE can reach a same lowest noise level when used in preamp mode by switching off the power stage and related supply units inside (AMP off)?
Also, it may be interesting for me to test both gears (L2i-SE and Ayon CF PA) for bi-amping my speakers
I thought the Dynaudio Special 40's sounded pretty bad with my Lio Integrated. Guess a 15k upgrade was all I needed..lol
Hi Vinnie,Thank you for the answer... Have you ever tried to source the L2i-SE from the Aurender A30 (from either analogue outputs to L2i-SE or from USB towards VR DAC-2)?A30 houses the same DAC chipset 2xAK4497 (dual mono) like used in the VR DAC-2, so I would really be interested to compare them for SQ. I see you mainly use Innuos as a digital source in your demos... Are any other recommendations from you for streaming options to the combination L2i-SE + DAC-2?Thx, Alex

Been enjoying my new L2 integrated for a few days now. Even at first power-up, you could hear that it was something special. I could bore you with a lengthy writeup about the sound, but I wont. Instead, I just want to say that the customer support from Vinnie has been amazing--as we worked out the logistics of trade-in, shipping to/from Japan, and a lot of really basic newbie questions from me. When you factor in the customer service, warrantee, build quality, sound, looks: its a no brainer!As I said before...customer for life. I am sure I will spring the monoblocks down the road. p.s I am using the stock tubes that came with the integrated. Any suggestions out there on next level up for tubes? (I see a of pictures with the tubes actually sticking up out of the unit. Is that because the model is the Signature model, or is there a larger, better sounding tube? )Cheers,Willy L.
The hype is true, this is a seriously impressive piece of kit.I'm using Tak 300B's and speakers are refurb'd Tanny Corner Yorks (oversized cabs). Loving the Floyd...
Regarding replacement tubes I wonder if maybe Vinnie has tried Psvane tubes https://www.tubeampdoctor.com/en/psvane-cv181-t-mii/2/6sn7gt-matched-pair
Does anyone has a pair of WE 300Bs from Rossville in their L2i-SE? Care to post your impressions of them in L2i-SE?
Are you referring to the new production WE300Bs? Last I heard is that they still have not shipped yet. I hope the wait is over soon, because I really enjoy my pair of WE-300Bs from 2006 and can't wait to hear the new Rossville factory version! I just don't want to order until they are actually shipping them.
