Audio Innovations preamps.....

4 posts in this topic

Does anyone have a view on the sonic differences between the L1 and L2 preamps?

I'm temptedto look for one as my first tube preamp - L1s are cheap (last oneI saw went for about £160I think, which must surely be a safe punt?), but the L2 appears tobe amore complex design.

Is there much to choose between them on sonic grounds?

Cheers

Martin

Same audio circuit.

PIO coupling caps and shunt regulated power supply on L2.

Balance control and buffered 'tape out' too iirc.

An Audio Innovations L1 arrived at alfieboys today!

Only had it playing into the WAD KEL84 for a couple of hours, pretty impressed though! :^Getting quite a nice sound from apretty cheap valvepre/power combo! They're driving the LVs soooo much better than my Exposures :)

These are my first valves so can't really compare them to anything else, but does seem a nice cheap introduction :D:P
