Im torn between buying wa6se or decware taboo. Has anybody heard both and would kindly give me some feedbacks?

Hi folks,

 

Can you please let me know which amp/dac combo (integrated would be the best, I like simplicity) that I can get for my LCD2.2 without putting a deep hole into my pocket?

 

Thanks for reading.

Actual music is for the insufficiently equipped.  How can he properly hear the headphones with that foot tapping?  It's unscientific!

Some people like the Icon HDP ($450) and the CEntrance DACmini ($800) with LCD-2s. I haven’t heard them personally, so it’s just to make you aware of those products (and maybe get people with first hand experience to comment on them).

The Icon HDP is an alright match for the LCD-2, and it keeps the dark flavor sometimes attributed to the cans, but you would do better with something that has more power and a neutral signature, e.g. the NFB-10SE.  I enjoyed the HDP a lot more for my Denon D7000s than my LCD-2s.

I was thinking of the O2 amp & Odac combo.

What do you think?

While this is not my go to set up for the LCD-2 (I prefer tubes or the power of the Pioneer SX1250), the ODAC+O2amp is a tough combo to beat on a budget, and if you get individual units it can be a good transportable rig (I can fit it and the LCD-2's in the LCD travel case) if you have a laptop as a source.

Sounds fantastic with mine.  The big rig does offer a little more, but if I had to, I could certainly live with the O2, ODAC, and LCD-2.

Could I get some background on the ODAC and O2? I am unfamiliar with them.

Thanks!

They're a DAC & amp designed with measurements in mind.  I can't link you, but if you google it you should be able to find them.

Looks good. Backordered I see. The good ones always seem to be!

I’m considering buying a pair of Audeze LCD-2’s. I use an older Mcintosh intergraded amp as a headphone amp.  I also listen to vinyl.

Does anyone have experience with this set up using  the LCD-2’s?

Most reviews use a separate headphone amp with digital music.   I'm using Senn HD650's now
