If I may ask, why not stick with the stock tubes on the MJ2?
MJ2 is a fantastic amp, but if you are going to just go solid state, I'd stick with Asgard 2 or Jotunheim and it seems the Jotunheim is the more capable of the pair.
Perhaps get the Modi Multibit and Jotunheim, very good affordable combo.
I will now get a Gumby + MJ2 with stock tubes, since LISST is not available right now. This is my introduction to tube sound, I am curious :)
I will get the LISSTs when they become available again as well, though, to see/listen for myself.
Now I am only searching for the right headphones to go along, Ether Flow is my favorite so far. "Unfortunately", we have two shops with Audeze, Hifiman, Oppo, Sennheiser and Stax etc., but no Mr.Speakers to have a listen.
