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.
