True. I added an Audiophilleo2 with PurePower to my NAD M51 and it made a huge improvment in the sound. Especially in the bass region (quality and quantity).

 

BTW, if you can find a Bryston BHA-1 used, you will be very, very happy with LCD-2.

 

They are showing up on Audiogon for under $1100 USD now pretty regularly.

I am just not a fan of Crystal DAC's....I love Bryston gear though.

The Dynahi is proving to be the best amp I've heard with the LCD's. CSP2+ and Taboo were also excellent (together), but do not provide the same degrees of clarity or heft the Dynahi bring. Still have the Balancing Act to try and need a balanced cable for the 4 ch Beta (3 ch. was very good, so have an affinity for the house sound), but darn if I could say there is anything missing from the Dynahi.

Definitely, it's a lovely combination indeed. Now users have the chance to switch Dac pcb, wicked cool!

Can't say. I don't own the GS-X...yet. It's one of the few still on my radar.

Try the Rega DAC. It's quite warmish and has 5 filter settings. I find setting 1 to be best for bass.

LCD-2 do not have bass impact, it's more of a bass tone in favor of not distracting you with one particular bit of the range. It's less fatiguing to listen to that way as well.

They have plenty of bass impact when the music calls for it.

That's the first time anyone had said the LCD2 does not have impact. I don't know what sort of amp you were using but I can assure you, they have plenty of impact.

Lcd-2 had tons of impact more than any other headphone ive heard except he-5le (more punch less slam), and ultrasone pro 900

The magnetic field doesn't move air the same way to give you the bass impact that a driver does IMO. It's what gives orthos their clarity since there isn't any distortion due to driver speed/rigidity but it lacks some impact at times.

Schiit Mjolnir + Schiit Gungnir, and AudioGD NFB 10.32 balanced out. Both optical-in.

Punch being mid-bass impact, and slam being the lower sub-bass impact right? HD800, HD600, K550, and HD700 are some recent ones I've tried that have it. It's not a BAD thing, it's just something I feel the LCD-2 doesn't have. In exchange you get a perfectly clear mid-range free of distortion at any volume and a very soothing tonality. Pro900 is a fart cannon, they rumble across my desk if I set them down.

I don't know, you musta had something wrong, there's no way you didn't get impact from LCD2. Especially with Mjolnir.

I've had the headphones since the Rev 2 came out, multiple times. It's just that other headphones do a couple things that 2's dont, and 2's do things that really no other headphone really can :)
