RE: VTL 5.5 Series 2

I can only tell you that I've compared the new 5.5 II with the 5.5 that reside in my own system. The old 5.5 was a great preamp, the new 5.5 II raise the performances a lot without loosing any of the quality of the older unit and added the balanced inputs (the circuit its fully balanced). It's a fantastic preamp IMHO but you need to go to listen by yourself.
