It is a tube hybrid, high voltage for the tubes to keep them operating at their most linear point, dual 30V rails for the class A Mosfet output stage which allows 42V p-p swing. DC coupled so no caps or transformers n the signal path and a servo which keeps the offset at zero. 

 

It is a wonderfully powerful amp and well worth the audition. Cavalli Audio is also releasing a solid state amp, the "Liquid Gold" which will have similar voltage swing but will be faster.

I've just had a quick look around, but can not find prices for Mr. Cavalli's Liquid Fire and Liquid Gold amps. Has the price been released?

 

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?

So how will the LCD 2 sound with my ZDT? Anyone try the LCD2 with any EC amp?

I believe Absorbine_Sr did with positive results...also, a search yielded:

EDIT: Woo 1,000th post
 
hope this helps...I only listened through the Liquid Fire:)...

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.

Is the Woo Audio 6 a good amplifier to use with the LCD-2? What do you think?

 

Thanks.

I Was just about to ask you about that. That is very good to hear.

 

Now, to continue saving for the LCD-2.

X2, I want to get LCD-2 but don't want to buy another amp for it. I heard it does not match well with my Sonett.
post #27 of 7727
I have not heard it with the WA6, but there were some good reports of the pairing by others.
post #28 of 7727

Hummm, I may just get it and give it a try.

Would you say the J Sound Lab is as good a match as the Meier Concerto?
