THANKS for the compliments...I am blessed, THANKS to my buddies here at head-fi for all their advice over the last 3 years, I cannot believe how long it has been JAMATO, HEADPHONE ADDICT, HIFLIGHT, CRAIG-WHIPLASH (he made the LCD-2 cable)
I think the LCD-2 and the RS1i do everything well, the LCD-2 (rev1 which is what I have) just does it a bit better
It is subjective but I think it is a much fuller phone
another thing is that the LCD2 is an open but over the ear phone and the grado is a REALLY open phone....so it is two very different presentations
So, I am glad I have both, I dont see myself selling either of these and really like to switch back and forth
the LCD-2 is an...
It does not drive the LCD-2 as well as it does the RS1i (grados are notoriously easier to drive)
I am now using it as a DAC to feed the P4 and LCD-2 OMG...a marriage made in HEAVEN (and my P4 is stock---cant imagine it getting better but will be upping the ante with HIFLIGHT)...AND MAY I add that the P4 and the RS1i is great too!
*Christian McBride LIVE at TONIC (if you like Modern Jazz, this CD is the ISH...now if I could only find CD3)
Listening right now with the RS1i...YOU WILL LOVE THIS LITTLE AMP/DAC!
streaming music and it sounds fantastic...listening to DANCE music and drives nice bass and full sound
**What I have always liked about IBASSO stuff is they sound great right out of the gate (out of the box)
***and again this is right out of the BOX
