Gotta dodge all the flowers in a 6 moons review. I got the following:
In absolute terms, LCD-X >AD's but not by much.
In $ for $ terms, the AD is the better value proposition.
My experience with Mr. Speaker's offerings is that there are top or near top tier headphones that are "better" to some degree, but nothing else out there offers the shear goodness per dollar that the Mad Dog and Alpha Dog offer. That is why I'm a fan boy. Well, and Dan likes a similar signature...
