I won't be running a dac since the source will be all vinyl.
In regards to the Taboo (sans CSP2+) I've read that the volume control and headphone output jack is less than desirable and the CSP2+ is a necessity. Your thoughts?
Yeah it's mucho dinero and would rather not go there. Which amp would you recommend that will max out the LCD-2's performance without laying down big money?
Another combo would be the Decware CSP2+ Preamp and Taboo amp. Same price range and good reports for driving the LCD-2. www.decware.com
Ok... more reading to do, Thanks for the suggestion.
