Amp recommendations for Audeze LCD-2 - Page 332

post #4966 of 7519

How about trying the Woo Audio WA6SE?

post #4967 of 7519

Hey Drez, I understand what your saying about cans and pairing....the never ending search for the magic solution for your "stuff', ears and brain.

 

 

There are so many variables etc....that one easily goes 'glassy eyed' and then buys based on opionions etc only to find out thats not really what I wanted in the first place...and then more opinions and money and time.

 

Guess this is what makes this hobby interesting...

 

To me after going thru this cycle many times have found stuff that is the least obtrusive to the music...transparent and not colored etc...amps with the straight wire with gain. etc..

 

Even then when you find and amp like that and a dac....then u still have to deal with the cans and the source...so if you pick a device that will tailor the sound of your cans ...your going to find out that many cd's, flacs etc are going to upset this perfect world we strive for...

 

Aint technology just grand!!

absolutely!  that's why nothing beats trying out equipment (headphones, amps, sources) for yourself & this is especially true for those with limited experience.  they need to get to headphone meets; go to stores which have a selection of amps and headphones & team up with someone local to discuss/share experiences.  all three of those situations have helped me a lot even tho i've had more than 3 decades of high-end audio experience.

yup....i hate to see new guys getting a set of cans, find an amp that makes them sound good to them and then get new cans and then say..."hey...what happened!"

Not in the least.  In fact, depending on the amps being compared, the opposite can be true.

Love, love, love my LCD-2s. I currently have a KICAS Caliente and I'm thinking of trying a new amp.

My one request: rock solid, hard hitting bass that goes low. Looking to stay at $1,000 or below but if there's something out there that's mind blowing and costs more, I'd love to hear about it.

Thanks!

Sounds like you want a Schiit Mjolnir

My LCD-2 never gave out the clean and tight bass until it was driven by the Mjolnir. 

post #4975 of 7519

Wow, two Mjolnir recommendations right off the bat.

 

Hope this isn't too off topic... this would be the first time that I go balanced. Would you guys recommend I get the stock Audeze balanced cable or is there another reasonably priced cable out there that gets top pick?

I also get amazingly deep tight bass with my Master-6. Maybe its a balanced thing or maybe a power thing.

Everyone seems to agree that Audeze's stock cables are monkey nuts.

I can just imagine the Master-6 + LCDX combo.  The bass is crazy good with the all balanced B22, M^3 + LCD-2.2 combos.  I can't wait to hear a Dynahi with these as well.

Monkeys seem to get along fine with their nuts, and the Audez'e get along fine with their stock cable.

I somehow doubt Audeze used monkey testicles in the manufacture of their cables.
