I think Unless you get the tone module you give up the mixer and presets in the base of the L1. I agree I like the new base I just wish they could have improved it for the same price point. Even a couple of bucks more for the new tone module would be ok. But you really can't compare the original L1 with its built in mixer and presets to the new L1 without the tone module with just one Line-level analog input that accepts 1/4" TRS.
That's what I mean by giving up a lot one is a complete system the other needs either the tone module or a mixer.
Of course I could be wrong and maybe I'm speaking from the perspectives of do I find enough of a reason to upgrade from the original to the model II. If I was buying a system from scratch that might be different.

Tony: I am using a Boss MS-100 for the center channel with the Logitech. It's not made anymore. It's a pair of 5" speakers in a single unpowered enclosure. Similar to the Nady PM100 Personal Monitor at zzsounds.com or Galaxy Hot Spot at sweetwater.com. It made a huge different with improved tone quality.

The JBL VRX should not even be mentioned in the same breath as Bose. The JBL is a serious speaker, and bose is a joke in live PA

Well, nothing like offending a whole lot of people with your very first post.
Today I received my second Bose L1 system. One I can leave in place at the club where I work, and another for other jobs.
It's by far the best PA system I've ever heard, much less owned. And I''m old and have heard 'em all.
Welcome to the forum!

Gary have you used a Bose system? Why do you say its a joke. What are you using now & why for sound reinforcement?

I have the original L1 with the tone module. I find the presets very good in matching the optimum sound of the instrument to the system. With the L1 classic and ToneMatch, I have all kinds of connectivity,presets, effects, and much better control of EQ on four channels. I have used a mixer, but it is not as good as the ToneMatch , for me at least. I may be giving up a small degree of lateral sound dispersion, but it would not be noticeable in my venues.

"The JBL is a serious speaker,"
For serious money, and is not meant as the same all in one solution as the Bose. You can't compare apples and lettuce.
