Aaron has been kind enough to bring this amp to some of the famous NY H-f meets and everyone who listened to it was impressed.  Aaron is as careful with his gear as anyone around here, and those who've purchased from him have had fine experiences.  
since the cost isn't an issue go for the lcd 3 as it will likely make you a happier camper. it sounds better, looks better, and feels better imo. can you get to a good meet and hear some of the more recent toys? you can get a better idea of what's out there and what tickles your fancy.  besides, they're a lot of fun.  btw, what are the speakers that you mentioned?
i hope to attend. thanks for organizing yet another meet, Tom!
Please sign me up, Pras. This is a very generous and kind thing for you to do.  
there are threads that cover both the topics of aftermarket cabling for audezes as well as comparisons & pros & cons of lcd 2 vs 3. search and (with a little luck) ye shall find.  ;-)
i'm surprised no one has yet mentioned david mahler, especially in light of his recent massive top tier cans rankings thread. and joker with his incredible running ratings of portable cans and iems!   while my collection may not have the focus, value, or depth of some of the gear heads already mentioned, my collection has north of 75 phones currently, and i've sold scores of others. i really do need to thin the herd.....   i think that would be Wertherdvx, rather than...

you may be better off looking for a nice set of cd3000s, which could be had for roughly $500 or so. they're kind of like a set of baby r10s, with that sort of sound and feel to them, and if anything happened to them at ~8% of the cost of r10s it wouldn't be nearly such a bitter pill to swallow. my 2 cents on the leatherheads is that they're one of the most overpriced and overrated phones out there. the jvc dx1000 is less expensive and both a better phone as well as a...
very punny, wuwhere.  what the heck are these speakers?
i've owned both, although it's been a long time since i had those ultrasones. my recollection is that of the 4 ultrasones i owned i liked them the least/disliked them the most. iirc the treble was on the annoying side. my dennon d2ks are not stock. the original owner recabled them and i do not experience the sloppy bass that some have complained about with the stockers. they do roll off a bit at the frequency extremes, but i find them to be a very relaxing phone to...
