The 16LS MKII is a much better preamp than the 17LS. They both share the same character, you just get more of everything with the 16LS. I had a chance to check out the 17LS and 17LS mkII side by side and thought the new version had a touch more resolution and extension in the treble. The differences were very subtle though. In my opinion the LS16 MkII is in a totally different class.
