Hmm.....It is right at the edge. It will totally depend on your listening level preferences. Sound quality is good (I am not a huge Abyss fan FWIW). If the power is enough for you I am sure you will like the pairing.
I think I resemble that comment....
You only need one really nice one...
I actually prefer the President....
First, the Carbon is a terrific amp and will put pressure on a lot of $1k+ amps given its quality. It is bested by the Crimson IMO in dynamic's. The Crimson's increased power reserves gives it an ability to manage music with large scale presentation. Orchestral, Metal, music with a lot of power faired better with the extra reserves from the Crimson. I did not find big differences with Folk or intimate Jazz as these tend to require finesse and both amps had that in spades....
He will be back soon I am sure.
I reviewed the Crimson for Headphone.guru. Check out my sig line. At the time I was reviewing the Crimson there were only two units in existence. I also spent time with both at CanJam in March. I really like the LC. It is an awesome value. However, it is not at the Crimson or Gold's level. This is not a surprise given the cost difference as well as power. 
I have not. There is a limit to how many amps you can use!  I am very impressed with the LC though. Alex has a strong lineup and this provides a very high value option.
I have....The Crimson is clearly more powerful. They are both wonderful. One is transportable the other is a killer desktop device. If I could have only one, it would be the Crimson. 
Crimson has more than twice the power.
