It's also a shame that the L-2 is sold out...

I contacted Doug several days ago asking for this amp, but he told me that the L-2 is discontinued and that there probably won't be another production run. I really wanted to get this amp for my HD800, but I lost the opportunity. If the L-2 supposedly drives the HD800 that well like what people are saying, then I consider it a stunning value; not many headphone amps, even those costing much more, could drive the HD800 to its full glory.

Right now the only hope I have of auditioning his amp is through buying a second-hand unit... assuming there are people willing to put up their L-2 for sale, that is. It's a long shot, though. Reviews like this make me a sad panda.

Songmic, I don't own the HD800s, but all the positive comments about its great synergy with the L-2 has me rethinking whether to buy a pair. I will say that the L-2 drives the LCD-2s really well, certainly better than the Super 7 or Woo 22.
 
If I were you, find out what amp Doug is planning to build next (maybe the Black Diamond?) and just plan to buy one of those.
