SF Line 2 to upgrade or not
Well my trusty SF line 2 just failed, seems to be the power supply unit as one could easily identify the odour of burning electronics coming from it. Yes, I've changed the fuse just to have it fry again as soon as the power is turned on. So I'll need to send to C.J. at Parts Connexion for repair. In fact I've already conversed with him by email, he is (as all good sales guys do) suggesting I look at doing the SE+ and new volume controll upgrade while it's in the shop.
I might go for the volume controll from what I gather this will increase the available output voltage which seems lacking in the stock version but I'm waffling on that expensive SE+ upgrade.
So, my question is what do those of you that have had this "full montie" upgrade done to your Line 2's think of it?
What has it brought to the table in terms of improvement in your systems?
Is the cost to reward ratio worthwhile?

Thank you in advance for any insight anyone is able to offer.
