Completely understandable, I really didn't like the Deep Darth Beyers at first as well, but after proper burn in and spending a few multi-hour sessions with them, they're certainly a force to trifle with
I only spent about an hour with the L3000, source was a diyMod 5G iPod with BlackGate output caps (I know, it's not great, but I didn't finish the Sonicap dock until later), amp was my PPAv2 (OPA627/OPA637, BD139/BD140 buffers at 35mA on each channel). I can easily say that I love this setup, but was just unimpressed with the L3000, everything simply sounded "off", like not what I expected or liked in my music.
