I had an L3000 for a while, older transformers. I loved the design and flexibility, but I was nonplussed on the sonics. In my system, it just seemed way too polite, not dynamic enough. At the same time, a good friend, who had the L3000 in a super high-end system, loved this preamp. I don't know why there was a difference in perceptions - we usually hear things similarly. In any case, I may be the only detractor. Right now I'm using a VAC Ren 2 (upgraded).
