I have been really bad about coming to the forums this year.... Just scanning now but let me reply to the most recent person here. Balanced vs. SE. I am thinking more and more that is its just different not better or worse. I personally like Balanced more. I am going to start a new thread about the new RXMKIII B+ I love it! got it the day after it was announced. I also want to leave some impressions of the AK120. These forums are absolutely wonderful and so helpful.
No I never did... Sorry to be so late on coming back to this thread. It's been a busy year.
Impressions people??? Pictures???? CLAS db??? LCD closed back??? I have been dreaming of both these. I need info pronto???
Hi Ray, I was using the SR71B in a fully Balanced mode. I also used a Balanced DAC. I tried several Combos. I also conversed with some people on the forums. They said that possibly for me the higher frequency was a bit harsh for my ears. I am sorry I used the word Trashy. That is not really fair. I wrote that on the go. I have been accused of having doggy ears. I work in the music industry and I am really critical about how I listen to music. I am always on the quest to...
I am listening Balanced out! Love it! Well worth the switch to Balanced. My old set up. I used an ibasso DAC out of my CLAS (Digital Out) Just to have the Balanced into my SR71B. After repeated tests it seemed to be a hair better that way. I opted to let go of all that when I put the RX3 into the chain. It did not seem to need it. I am sure the CLAS will have a Balanced in when it gets it's update. Too many rumors. I would be a happy man if that happened soon.   I also...
I am addicted to my LCD3's. For me this is my favourite combo. I have tried with some in ears but that is not my thing. Tried with LCD2 which I love!!!! But the 3's have an improved high end that I love.I would describe with this set up as a home theatre on your head huge soundstage, imaging is excellent. I almost feel like there is a subwoofer on ever so slightly. I hear instruments in front and behind me. It is the most fun I have ever had listening to music on the go....
I really want to echo the statements here. The MK3 is very 3D. No better way to put it. The treble extension slaughters the SR71-B. I find the Sr71-B a bit trashy in the high end. The MK3 smooth and silky which allows for longer listening sessions. I find the MK3 in the same family as the MK2 but it is a step up even without the bass knob on but there is no reason not to have that knob on a little bit!!!!
I have not noticed any imbalance at all. I was half expecting to. The one time I thought I did I realised it was the actual recording. love the MK3 more and more everyday. I find it to be much sweeter than the SR71-B. the SR71-B is to my ears more in your face and clinical sounding.
  I usually wait for impressions until after a week or so of burn in time. This time I was blown away out of the box :). This is the new set up. This was the old set up...
