Over the past few months, LCD2s have gotten around 15 hours head time compared to the HD800, maybe 400 hours head time . Lyr has ample juice to power the HD800, however, I am not a fan of the combination.
No, I don't find them harsh and absolutely not thin. When powered by a good amp they will sound full but they can get very analytical hence the confusion with the harshness that has come to many discussions in these forums. Can you order from Amazon?
Soundstage : HD800 >> LCD2 Imaging: HD800 > LCD2 HD800 has a lot of width but I tend to agree that it may be sometimes too artificial (aka too wide). 650 has a dark sounding sound sig, same with the LCD2s, but to me they are different.
