it's flavor of NEXT month.
Any word yet on the estimated price for the Liquid Fire and Liquid Gold amps from Cavalli Audio?
Also, did anyone try the LCD-2 with the new TTVJ Apex Peak Hybrid amp w/ Volcano PSU at CanJam?
I believe Absorbine_Sr did with positive results...also, a search yielded:
I've spent some time this weekend using the LCD-2 with the J SoundLab Headphone, which is a small, relatively inexpensive transformer-coupled tube headphone amp. It actually worked quote well! We have had no electric power here since Friday afternoon, due to some serious storms (as I type this we still don't have power 2 days later). I have a back-up generator, but it doesn't power everything, and I don't have my main rig on, so I am using this little guy. The sound is actually MUCH better than I expected. The fact that it's a transformer-coupled design is the key, I think. Perfect? No. But for the money (last I knew this amp was $399), really very good.
Unbelievably good was my reaction at RMAF2009. I had never heard anything like it before. Better than anything they had at the Woo tables, but that was all a blur. This combination, the ZDT with other headphones (ask Larry) and the Exstata SS amp (with a bunch of different electrostatic headphones) blew my mind and turned an otherwise disappointing RMAF into at least decent.
I Was just about to ask you about that. That is very good to hear.
Now, to continue saving for the LCD-2.
