ANK L5 Mentor Preamp Kit.

Hi Guy's, I am about ready to take the plunge and drop 5K on an ANK L5 Mentor pre amp kit.  Anyone have any thoughts, advice, or insight on this unit?. I will be assembling the unit myself. Are the folks who have purchased this pre amp happy with the unit? Any input would be appreciated.

Thanks, Steven.

I'm planning on building one soon. Based on the sound quality off the ANK 4.1x DAC that I recently built, I expect great things.

No one talks about the L5 Mentor because there aren't any reviews.

Congratulations. I'd be surprised if you aren't delighted.

My suggestion would be to do a complete parts inventory before you start the build.

I love the 2.1 dac that I built, vinylvalet is correct on checking the parts inventory. I had to go back to Brian a few times for additional parts.

Not sure why anyone would want warm or analytical in a properly designed stereo system. If you mean by musical, tonal purity, effortless dynamics and presence then this DAC is spot on.
