I have a JLTI from the first Australian production run. My JLTI was part of a phono stage shoot-out at Audio Revelations which is why Audio Revelations now carries the product. I have also lent my unit to friends for them to compare to other phono stages in their own systems. The consensus is that the JLTI is an overachiever. It holds its own with phono stages costing $4,000 or more. It is transparent, dynamic, with good bass slam. Like most solid state units it can not match the three dimensionality that tube phono stages have. But at $1,695 it is amazing. Talk to Jay at Audio Revelations about the outboard power supply. You may not want it as there are trade-offs.
