we can't help if you don't give us more details, there are previous threads and discussions about this as well ya know, but we would be glad to help you out if you need it. There are such things as portable amps, maybe check out some by ALO audio.  
I'm not an owner of the LCD-2's, but I have been following this thread for a while, just passively observing the comments and it appears we have some feedback on the ALO Audio silver/copper cables, the Moon audio Blue and Silver Dragon's, the black magic's, Norse cables, and a few others.  It would appear that the people that have had the opportunity to audition the various cables are saying that the Alo Audio Silver/copper cables are the best choice in terms of SQ but...
nope, never saw this, it's awesome!  It's weird to be listening to a youtube about how the AKGs 702s are made through the AKG 702s, haha. 
Liszt piano concertos 1 & 2 played by Sviatoslav Richter.  gorgeous, electric stuff.   Album named "Rite" Gustavo Dudamel conducting the simon bolivar orchestra, playing the rite of spring by Stravinsky and Noche de los mayas (night of the Maya) by Silvestre Revueltas.  The final movement of the Revueltas piece has this manic energy to it, 17 percussionists going crazy on all sorts of drums with full orchestra, wild.  Oh, and BTW, it was recorded LIVE!  (no audible...
you jack off to your favorite Mozart opera...     lolllllllllllll
Whoops!  I posted the wrong link!  The one I posted is still talking about various cables for the HD650s, but here is the one I meant to post:   http://www.positive-feedback.com/Issue52/moon_audio.htm   Enjoy!
geez, this thread has been all over the place................        quite entertaining really.     haha, anyway, Abe21599, in answer to your question: "is there gonna be a comparable difference with an amp if my source has variable quality music?"     With the HD650s the answer is a very resounding YES!  those are high impedance headphones and demand power!  sending them out of the mini jack on your computer will produce less than stellar performance...
SQ issues/questions aside, these wooden grills are gorgeous!  I would be interested to see them in red sandalwood or cocobolo, or zebrawood, purple heart? hahaha, those would be interesting.  Kingswood might also be nice looking.  I think I like the ebony ones the best so far.  Nice dark wood right there.  For a real challenge, Amboyna burl perhaps? that's expensive wood, but it's beautiful!
I got the Burson audio HA-160D and all I can say is that the 702s are starting to sound amazing! I also got them recabled by ALO Audio.  I spent alot of money, but the sound keeps on improving with every day that goes by.  I cant wait until these reach the 300-400 hour mark!  I'm sure they'll be broken in by then.  Right now I probably have 100 hours on the 702s.  50-60 hours on the Burson.  
I've heard good things about the NuForce HDP Icon DAC/Amp.  I have not heard it myself, but it may be of interest.  I went with the Burson HA-160D and the 702s sound AMAZING!  I also looked at the E9 and E7 when searching for an amp/DAC.  I think the NuForce would be a better choice, but I have not heard either of them so I cannot really help that much in describing the sound or choosing one over the other.  The Nuforce is more expensive I think, but it appears to be...
