I do preferr the Goldpoint Headphone Pro, Audio GD C-2.1 over it. All quite transparent amplifiers to my ears. By interpolation the Holographic Audio Ear One do quite good though I wonder if not the C-2.1 still complement the LCD-2 best. It´s really close though and depend a bit on which revision I run. I am generally hunting a bit of treble with the Rev1 and sometimes a bit of warmth with my Rev2.

Have you heard Lehmann BCL oqvist?

Ok, I am hoping to kmow comparison between bcl and audio gd c2.x. Audio gd DACs are fantastic, but still wonder how their amps sounds like. I heard Phoenix for a short while at friend' s place though.

Anyone?

I guess it's all matter of preference.  I had the Audio GD 2.1 and their NFB-3 dac and preferred the V200 by a lot and the V800 by even more.

Yes. I own the V200 and a friend of mine got the Mdac. The headphone out of the Mdac is very poor sounding. Not even close to the good quality or V200

Hi! I was wondering if a RSA Sr-71A/B can drive the LCD-2. It's really thought to get a good desktop amp here in Singapore. There is only one that is reputable which is the rsa dark star which costs a mind boggling price!

Will this be sufficient to power the LCD2 to its potential? Burson claims it will, I need some other opinions!

Help is appreciated. 

Although there are better sounding amps for the LCD2, not to worry, the HA160 will drive the LCD2 just fine. If the HA160 is one of the only options available to you, go ahead and pick one up, I don't think you will be disappointed.

That said, maybe the new Soloist SL would be a better option. It will have more power and likely sound better as well. Plus, I think the cost is roughly equivalent.

I bought a LCD3, and really don't know whart to take.

DAC+AMP our DAC/AMP:

With my research i found Schiit MAGNIR+MOLJNIR or Audio-GD 27, what do you think or if you have a better option?

I am listening Rock/Hard Rock/Post Rock.

I have auditioned LCD3, and found that Burson Conductor is a really good match for both LCD2 and LCD3.

I have the Schiit Stack, 100% happy. But usually when questions are asked, it really boils down to a popularity contest and it's always Violectric, Schiit, and Burson.

 

I am actually very very fond of the AGD stuff though. He's done some great stuff for unbelievable prices.

For what I know it's the latest available. But I don'r really think that the firmare has effects on the headphone out.

Sorry for repost but it seems, I didn't get an answer. Will the LCD-2 be driven by the Ray Samuel Audio SR-71A?

I can exactly get a proper desktop amp here in my country so my only option is a high-end portable amp kinda seem

like the only way to go. I heard Tyll at innerfidelity say the  SR-71, the SR-71A's succesor, that it is a portable amp

with desktop amp performance. Or should I get the RSA Predator because it has  a built in DAC?

More than fine. RSA Predator will do it too, but the LCD-2 isn't really that unforgiving of bad source, just make sure whatever is going into it is alright and you'll be happy if you already have an SR-71A.

 

If you need a compact amp that isnt' terrible to ship, I have experience with the Audio GD and a few other sub $500 dac/amps and I can say that AGD is great bang per buck in a small package that won't cost you $100 in shipping.
