Joule Elektra 150 MK ii v Jeff Rowland Synergy 2i


Would really appreciate any inputs from you on the performance comparison you have come across between these two great preamps.
Thank you.

I owned Jeff Rowland Capri preamp and was rather happy with it. However, when I got Joule-Electra LA-300 preamp I learned what "sonic paradise" is all about.... No comparison between two. These both preaamps are similar to that you asked.

Thanks Mike
But price wise one cannot compare the LA 300 to the Jeff Rowland
I think it comes down to comparing tube to solid state. I do not own the Jeff Roland but have heard it. I own the Joule Electra LAP 150 MKII(soon to be Signature) and would not give it up.
"....price wise one cannot compare the LA 300 to the Jeff Rowland "

Its not exactly true statement. I paid for my Capri quite a bit and Joule-Electra have many promotions.

At worst, instead of LA-300 you can get LA-150 SE as Coxhous did and you will have 85% and half price of "300". Even entry level LA-150 Mk2 will bring you to increadible musical involving level of listening to music. These preamps do not need much attention, 24/7 are warmed-up, you need re-tubing once in 5-10 years, highly relaiable etc.

Slighly off topic: any benefits in the upper frequency range when going from a LA-150 SE to LA-300? I know the bass is supposed to be much better and it maybe just a tube characteristic in general, but I yearn for more highs & air.

If there is it should be very minimal - as tubes and signal capacitors including bypass capacitors are identical in both models
