    Yep--- L-1 and M-3,, whatcha want to know? They are good-- I prefer the l1 because it has a very good headphone out.I had no issues,,but they have a "history" of being rough on tubes--for me,that was not the case.

    IIRC,, AI pre amps are phase inverting,

    Our design philosophy is based on the basic audio truth “the less in the box – the better the sound”.Our exhaustive tests have proven that the addition of phase inversion stages only adds additional circuitry which complicates accurate audio signal amplification.Considering that absolute phase can be maintained by simply “reversing each speaker connection” we feel that phase
    inversion circuitry is unnecessary.

    ^^^ taken from AI's website-- the mini-mite and your parasound should play nicely together. Tubes and SS-- it's all good.

    thanks, George. I got the idea of a tube pre with a ss amp from laura Dearborn's "good sound." excellent book.
