Quite a few prefer them with tube amps and then they sound better.

 

About the L2/Hugo, have you tried any amps on it?

It might be worth trying. jonfairway, of this thread, got good results with high end amps and tubes. So you might be able to get even more from your Hugo/L2. Then again you might find the power of the Hugo to be perfect already.

Deffo worth rolling some tubes to get the sound just the way you want.... NOS tubes still offer the best sound.... no idea why !!!  but hey who cares... love that warm full sound...

 

have got to a point now with the L2 where playing with the setup each time leaves me wondering if I can get it to sound any better..

 

still could go a way with the DAC's but it sounds pretty fab now.

 

Current setup

 

AIMP3  - 96K  -24 bit Direct into

USB Dared EF-99 Pre Tube stage DAC ( Modded -- Russian 6N1-EV and 6N2 tubes and RCA 12AX7 NOS tube )

pre outs to

Graham Slee SRGii with posh power supply.

into L2 using re-terminated Sennheiser HD650 cable

other interconnect

Chord Cobra between Graham Slee and Dared

 

all sounds very sweet indeed !!!!

 

swap between that for late night listening and my Modded LCD2.2 - with LCD3 drivers, damping mods, cable upgrade and LCD3 super soft pads....

 

hear the X2 is something pretty special !!!!!  an improvement apparently...
