Audible Illusions L2 or Audio Research LS16MKII?


Has anybody compared either of these 2 products, or similar products within these two manufacturer's lines? I'm looking for a very detailed tube preamp, with good bass response, in black finish, with a remote. I don't have either of these two preamps available for audition in my area, so any suggestions would be welcomed.

Thanks.

Good question. I'd like to know myself. I have used the L-1 and M3A. I have a remote L-2 on the way.
ARC LS16 Mk II.
THE AUDIBLE ILLUSIONS IS THE BETTER ONE, GREAT DETAIL AND BASS. I COMPARED IT WITH BAT VK-5 AND BEATS IT IN ANY WAY.
