Vinnie Rossi L2i SE [Expired]


no longer for sale

Greetings from AudioVision San Francisco!  

We are a hifi and home theater retailer in the heart of SF, serving the Bay Area and beyond in the quest for good sound for over 21 years!  We are certainly what you might call the real deal, and we stand firmly behind every product we sell - before, during, and after the sale!  As a dealer, any floor model product like the ones we are selling today come with not only a full manufacturer's warranty, all original boxes and materials, but also full dealer support in case you need it!  For such a tech-heavy product as a hifi server, it's certainly a huge benefit to have us on the line in case you run into trouble!

We have a very special offering for you today in our floor sample Vinnie Rossi L2i Signature Edition integrated amplifier!  This one is in black, and comes with the built-in phonostage as well as new tubes!  The phonostage has inputs and configurations for both MM and MC cartridges.  NOTE: IN THE PHOTOS THE TUBES ARE HIGH END UPGRADE TUBES MADE BY EAT AND NOT THE STOCK ONES SUPPLIED WITH THE AMP.  If you want some EAT tubes yourself, please ask and we'd be happy to give you details on those!

From Vinnie Rossi:

"The L2i-SE is our response to “what if?” What if we could combine our L2 Signature Preamplifier and L2 Signature Monoblocks into one chassis but with absolutely minimal concessions to design and performance? Could we still offer all the flexibility, build quality and stunning appearance to truly stand in a class of its own? The L2i-SE is Vinnie Rossi’s realization of that dream.

Unlike the L2 Integrated Amplifier (L2i), which runs a simpler 6SN7 linestage, the L2i-SE inherits from our L2 Signature Preamplifier the direct-heated big power triodes. Only one pair of the finest sounding 4-pin, directly heated triodes (DHT) are run in a dual-mono, class-A topology with zero feedback. They feed a true dual-mono, high-bandwidth class-AB MOSFET output stage making the L2i-SE a DHT hybrid integrated amplifier and likely the only one of its kind in the world! 

There are absolutely no compromises on speed and tonality, nor any distracting effects of driver tubes, coupling caps or output transformers. Music is reproduced with intense spaciousness, harmonic sophistication, liquidity and detail well beyond small triodes and pure transistors alike. 

You get the same flexibility as the L2 Signature Preamplifier (flick-of-a-switch tube rolling, tube bypass mode, L2 Dac and Phonostage options) and the full-function L2 remote handset. Merging all of this with superlative build quality, reliability and a 10-year warranty make the L2i-SE a striking single-chassis proposition that sits just one step below our flagship separates!
