Amp recommendations for Audeze LCD-2 - Page 341

The battery operated DAC/AMP from RedWineAudio seems to be a very good solution...

 

Until Today I was concerned by it's USB limited to 16/48 kHz, but....Here is the answer that Winnie from Red Wine Audio sent me about this USB bitsrate limitation.  24/192 kHz USB soon redface.gif Very good news !

They look sooo good together too. I really love the Red Wine Audio design, so simple but oozes class.

Try EarMax Silver Edition. Not bad.

post #5104 of 7648

yes, Earmax Silver.

I missed this thread, otherwise I would have posted my comparsion of the Earmax silver with the Lehmann Black Cube Linear here. I picked the Lehmann mainly to check, if the earmax is underpowered. 

 

Here is the link, just in case you are interested:

Best I've heard is still the Liquid Fire. First time I really thought about synergy.

I want to upgrade my amp for my LCD-2 rev2 wich I use with my Little Dot MkIV!

 

I'm hesitating between a Violectric V200 and a second hand Decwar Zen Taboo, wich one is the best with the LCD-2 rev2?

 

Thks

Between the V200 and Taboo, I'd go Taboo as well.

I had Lyr for awhile.  Now, deciding between V200 and Mjolnir.  I'm leaning toward Violectric.  I prefer warmth over neutral/bright.  Plus need an warm amp for my Magnums (Grado).

Warm V200 + Warm LCD2??  It's going to be pretty, well,    warm..  biggrin.gif

Yup. 2 warms don't make a bright! tongue.gif

More than warm, the v200 to those who love it, seem to love it for it's musicality.  The best of tube in solid stage (minus the slow and syrupy).  There are many on head-fi who believe that LCD-2 and V200 make the best pairing.  

Best synergy.   It seems more than any other amps for the LCD-2, to come down to Mjolnir and V200 at least now (more than Burson, Bryston, Isabella and Liquid Fire).  I know the Lyr used to be really popular.

At least in my short research, I could really be wrong because I'm just recently again researching it after a long period of not following the amp thread.  I been using the Lyr.  Those who have followed this thread probably know better.

I'll say it like this.  

 

Excuse my language I don't want to offend anyone.  

 

The LCD-2.2 is also know as a amp slut.  Meaning she goes good with just about any amp.  Noticed I said just about.  I know for a fact that the LCD-2.2 + the BHA-1 and the GS-1 are to die for.  They also go very well with my B22 and my CK2III.  I like them less with the M^3, but that sounds good as well..  They'er also many more amps the LCD-2.2 goes really good with.

I guess it's all matter of taste.  Everyone seems to think their amp is THE amp for the LCD-2. wink.gif

I'm just hoping to find "my amp" for my taste.
