I have this model. It's fantastic. Quieter than SS Phobos I demoed. Inky black and musical.

Sound is also very nice. No gain problem into RCA input of my ARC preamp.
I like it.
Do you know the MSRP of 2.1 Deluxe version ? Not even Google can answer me this.

Thanks.

Price at 2014 CES premier: $8690

Tima, thanks. isn't that price is for standard version ? The Deluxe is 1x,xxx $ i think. Toga
Hmm never mind anyway, on extensive listening, I prefer ARC REf2SE more. LP2.0 D was lacking in deep bass power.
I think I will choose REf2SE.

What cartridge did u use with the lamm. I would suspect it is more of a input load mismatch. Note that the Lamm internal step up is universal and some cartridge may not sure it full potential.

If you want to dig the best out of the Lamm, u either use a higher coil impedance cartridge or use external matching stepup.

With Denon 100th Anniversary cart, Lamm 2.0 lacked deep bass crunch.
Today with Phasemation PP1000, it sound much better, while ref2se sounded thin in the midband with PP1000.
Lamm still a bit darker at top end. And gain seems a bit low with Pp1000.
Burmester 100 sounded quite similar to Lp2.0, but at $$$$$$.

If fund is unlimited, I will definitely have LP2.1 as one of my phono preamp collection,
but it is not, so I have to find phono preamp that is more all-around, electrically and sonically. But man.. price of LP2.1 is so tempting. But at the moment, I feel Burmester 100 is the most all-around unit. plenty of gain option, good sounding too. ARC REF2SE while sound really nice ,has only two gain option, one being too low and one too high.

etna is an absolutely wonderful cart - have heard it a few times now.
it got more soul than the atlas.
you should have a great time, indeed! that combo should sound very rich and sweet.
please keep us posted with your thoughts.
