very interesting read....the LA series seems almost legendary according to this thread
So, as I said above, shamed by ldidiercs superb review of the LA7000s and comparison with the Grado GS1000s I thought I would try to do a more objective piece on the LA2000s.
I am immeasurably impressed by these ‘phones. Not only are they the best I have heard, but they best all my other cans by a margin that is quite ridiculous in the context of the law of diminishing returns of the high-end. Even in the context of my bigrig (Boudler/Verity Audio) I struggle to remember a component change that has had this level of impact on the listening experience. My hat off to Mark for a superb achievement in audio engineering. My mind keeps wandering back to the old Quad marketing slogan: “The closest approach to the original sound”.
Five strutses out of five, with a bullet.
