Shame, sounded like a fun project and was right up my price range. Oh well, gotta keep my eyes open for a while yet it seems!
"We tried SEX with the LCD-2 and it was OK but the bass was soft."
Yup...if I remember right Doc B tried the LCD-2's on almost all of the amps he had sitting around at Bottlehead, and he didn't really care for any of them. As he mentions in the post linked, he did like the punchiness on curbfeeler's system, which I think may be a Benchmark DAC1 PRE. I think he listened to the Stacker and didn't find it punchy enough, but I can't remember if he listened to the with the 6CG7 tubes. That being said, both our systems sounded to "digital" for his taste too.
