[[SPOILER]]   Now it's clear to me that when you asked, "Which is what?" - you were asking me what I want in an amp, not for a definition of "LCD-2 rev.1."    Which takes us back to the context of the post to which you first replied, where I wrote:  "I'm thinking of selling my HD800 for the same reasons" - with my reasons being the same as those expressed by trunk:  "The biggest problem I have with them is that they are very tilted towards the treble side and (for me) do...
The Audeze LCD-2 (revision 1) is a planar magnetic headphone:Sony PCM-M10 > iBasso PB2 > Audeze LCD-2 rev.1http://www.audeze.com/products/headphones/lcd-2
 Thanks for this post - I almost placed an order impulsively.   But I'm reading a lot of reviews on a lot of tube dacs, before taking the plunge...  Uggh! Mike
Thanks again, Pudu!
^ Mysteries abound!   
Hey guys,   I started reading this thread this morning, but made the mistake of fast-forwarding to the end, only to discover there's a whole lot of modding going on.    (To good effect, apparently!)   Can someone please take a stab at itemizing the most popular mods and stating what each of them does in terms of audible improvements over the stock Havana?   I was just about to order one but now, I really want to know what I'll be missing if I don't mod it.   For...
I like your thinking - and thanks for the quick test!   I've been thinking about the MHDT Havana as a desktop DAC > HA-1 amp > HD800, but I was hoping to kill too birds with one stone. The PCM1792A DAC in the FiiO X5 probably sounds similar to the V800's PCM1792 (disregarding implementation differences).     Your tastes for treble run opposite mine, so I really appreciate your having defined that for me, but all the more reason I'm bewildered that you don't find your...
Not really, as long as the recordings have lots of treble content.  I'm trying to bring down the treble of my HD800 without losing detail / resolution.     My current "best" desktop solution for the HD800 is this chain:   FiiO X5 Line Out (from its PCM1792A DAC) > OPPO HA-1 amp balanced out > HD800     My current "best" portable solution for the HD800 is this chain:   FiiO X5 Line Out (from its PCM1792A DAC) > iBasso PB2 w LME49990 x4 + dummy buffers, balanced...
Yes, thank you! That's very generous.If you coul tell me how it fails relative to your best HD800 setup, I'd really have the info I need.Mike
Thanks for the bump, Soundsgoodtome.  I agree with your comments!     The Bushmaster MkII is a relatively unknown 'giant killer' that nevertheless has a strong cult following.   I actually received payment from a buyer about an hour and fifteen minutes ago, so I'm closing this Classified, now.
