I've LCD-2 R2 w/Pan-Am

 

Pan-Am isn't the best for sure, but it bring musical voice that I'm enjoyed.

 

And it's power cord free rig., I like it's moveable and listening anywhere in house.

CSP2+ (preamp) > Decware Taboo > LCD 2 is the best I've heard them. Better than my Beta 22, Zana Deux, Marantz 2285, Lyr and WA6SE I tried. Takes the LCD's to a whole 'nother level of clarity and transparency that I never realized they had. Tubes of course play a part here, but I don't remember ever feeling so differently about a headphone before and after as I have with the LCD's.

Gotta love Decware gear!

Care to share your favorite tubes with us? (or maybe on the decware thread...)

 

Cheers

Sure: 

 

CSP2+ > Sylvania 5U4G Rectifier, 3 Genelax 6922 Gold Lions 

Taboo > Sylvania EL84 Backplates, Sylvania 5U4G, Mullard 12AT7

I am also using the JAN Sylvania 5U4G, and I have a Golden Lion in the Driver slot with two 6N1P's on either side...biggrin.gif

Still experimenting with my CSP2+/Taboo. Eric struck the tube-jackpot right from the start!

 

Different tube combinations bring different levels between neutral and warm. Many though seem to bring out a live, being there feel to (well-recorded) music.

 

Regardless of the exact tubes, dynamics and micro-dynamics are very good (exposing fine detail - e.g. vocal nuances - I hadn't noticed before), decay is natural and instruments and textures well-separated.

 

Decware + LCD2 is a great combination - well, what Eric said...

Im thinking of using a speaker amp for my LCD2s.

 

This one in particular: http://www.22tutu.com/en/index.php

 

What do you guys think? good/bad idea?

 

Reason why I want to use it is because I really love how that amp looks.

post #5053 of 7750
From a power standpoint it's adequate, around 1.5 watts into 60 ohms. And you should be fine without resistors as the amp is hybrid and not OTL. How much is it?
post #5054 of 7750

Nice. Thanks for the info.

 

Its about $900, but then there is freight from Japan. So I am guessing its going to be about 1K.

Have you considered the new Woo WA7? It has a built in DAC, and is less expensive with the introductory price. Aesthetically it's another beautiful (in a different way) two-tube amp and comes in silver or black. And it's a headphone amp, made in the USA.
