I am literally scooping my jaw off the floor as I write this....:L3000:

 

Congrats for your purchase. 

LCD-X its also a pretty nice match

Yeah I had debated between the LCD-2 and the newly released X, but I got the LCD-2 at Black Friday Special for $796. I figured I would use the savings and get a pair of Sennheiser HD800's next to complement different types of music. Love the Audeze sound so far though, I'm very impressed, I feel like I could just listen to these suckers all day :beyersmile:

I didn't like my LCDs at first either, I was used to grados, its been about a month now, I changed from the lyr to the soloist back to the lyr, It now sounds good with either amp

Thanks Anglesblood, there's another speaker, just on the other side, 220 watts would be a lot of power for just one speaker :eek:

 

Yeah I'm still burning both the LCD-2's & the Conductor in right now since they are brand new. Sounds a let better than what I was coming from, Bowers & Wilkins P5's.

I'm glad I am not the only one....I found the Soloist (awesome detail) a little too "lazy" for my tastes...Lyr grabs you by the scruff of the neck and demands your attention...

Wow, the bass on these things is AMAZING, even before being broken-in. The bass solo by Willie Weeks on Donny Hathaway's "Voices Inside (Everything Is Everything)" was the best sounding bass solo I've ever heard! It just blew my mind :o2smile:

That's a nice looking setup. 

 

Just a little note on the Schiit thing you posted a while back. I love my Lyr and Bifrost. They're not going anywhere, but tbh, they get a fraction of the listening time compared to the Soloist for the LCD 2.2 (and the other cans I have). For the music I listen to, the Soloist is the one I prefer rather than the Lyr with stock tubes. About the only thing better on the Lyr is more quantity down low and just a little more sub bass. The Soloist edges it in everything else. Not done any rolling - I don't want to try - as that may lead down another rabbit hole...or nor yet anyway. 

 

The Soloist is also great with the T1, which I recall you were interested in.

Not having hear the Lyr/Bifrost I can't really comment or compare, but I definately don't find the Conductor to be light in the bass department. It is clean, fast and doesn't overpower the midrange or the treble, just the way I like it.

honestly you can't say much about the Lyr because depending on the tubes it can change the sound.

yeah that's the main reason I went with the Conductor instead of the Lyr/Bifrost (the other reason being I wanted an all-in-one unit). I feel like if I got into tube rolling it would just be a rabbit hole and I would always be tinkering with it, I prefer equipment that I can just plug in and leave alone.

Haha thats why I try to stay away from tube gear as well.  Plus solid state just tends to work better with the lcd2 anyway

You made a nice investment goldendarko, are you still using the tenor usb receiver? 

post #7005 of 7692

I've picked up a Virtue Sensation M901 amp and I want to hook up my Audeze LCD 2's to the speaker posts. I've read this sounds great. I'm not sure of the headphone cable thoough. I'll probably have to get something made so I don't fry the amp and/or the Audeze. Any guidance would be helpful. Thanks.
