You're the one who brought them into this thead ha ha.. you're the one who has now got me looking at them!
Couldn't agree more though, I paid 3 times the amount for my RS1's from my 225's but the SQ is certainly not 3 times better. That is my point... the old diminishing returns. OR clever marketing... because of "the gap" The gap that means, if you want to upgrade fom a hp like the 650 you have to pay A LOT more. The gap that the "hifiman" has been clever enough to cash in on. Though when I think of it.. denon does one too..
You reach a peak with the 650's. If you want to get higher then you will have to really splash out.
True yeah the gap between the 650's and the LCD-2's is a heft one I only paid like 350.00 for my 650's 4 years ago
