Yeah, he's clearing everything out and will be throwing shrimp on the barbie in the next few weeks.
Thank you for the update. I'm very much looking forward to your impressions.
I hope we also get some L-2 vs BD impressions soon as well so I can figure out whether or not to continue my WTB for one or just pre-order a BD. I've also been on the fence debating whether to drop the amount of cash needed to just go with the GS-X, but I like my tubes and keep leaning towards the L-2.
You'd be surprised that the L-2 doesn't really sound like a typical tube amp. It is only mildly euphonic but fairly linear across the frequency range, like a good solid state amp. It is quiet as heck! No noise so to speak.
That said, I'd love to hear the reviews/opinions of the BD. Intriguing enough to consider plunking down the $1500 for it!
Pretty much the only 3 ss amps I'm interested in for the HD800s. Looking forward to your impressions.
I assume you'll be pairing the Xsabre with them all (for familiarity's sake)?
