    Re: Linear Tube Audio MZ2 - MicroZOTL2.0 Preamplifier/Headphone Amplifier ...

    I have the Linear tube audio MicroZOTL2 preamp at home now. I bought it with the linear power supply option. This is an absolutely phenomenal thing. It replaced a $16k Audio Note M6 preamp. I have absolutely no regrets I sold the AN. This LTA preamp is better than the AN in many areas already. The AN might have a little more tonal saturation and holographic quality but after listening to LTA preamp I find the AN to be colored and voiced in many ways. I have also tried it as an integrated amp with my 93db Tannoys. While one should not expect a lot from 1 watt, it actually drove the Tannoys without clipping. Just that it did not have the dynamics and power of music that a good 20 watt amp would have with my speakers. But then it's speed, timing, tonal purity and overall neutrality is something that I have seldom heard. That's why when it plays as an amp the music is very enjoyable and one would be totally drawn into the music than analyzing it. I don't think I will need another preamp for a long long time regardless of the power amp used. Unless of course if Berning/LTA comes with an even better preamp later. Here is a review of this masterpiece where it is compared with a $30k Wavac EC-300B and Pass xa30.8.

    I am so happy that you love it. Mine is outstanding in my system. It was recommended to me by someone that I trust very much and he was 100% correct. It was easy to recommend. Thank you for posting your thoughts above.

    By the way I also had the Lamm LL2, Shindo Masseto and Auriges at home and none of them is in anyway clearly better than the LTA preamp.
