Amp recommendations for Audeze LCD-2 - Page 470

post #7036 of 8119
Ah, yes. Such is life for me that I am humbly limited by my means. To be precise though, I've managed to listen to 5 amps, not just three. Yup, just two more than that which I have listed.

But hopefully that does not diminish one's opinion. I hope. Well, one can hope.

Despite my limited experience, I have personally had many enjoyable hours with the PanAm and LCD 2, and other headphones as well. Its not the ultimate amp, oh no, absolutely not. But its good for me, and worth keeping for what it brings to the table. There are some who agree, and some of course who don't - like any other equipment in head-fi.

The Pan Am is indeed a really, really nice combo with the LCD2.    I wonder how much of gear snobbery goes into the "well, it is only a portable amp" argument.    I have only heard the LCD2 with 2 $1000+ amps (my own and a Bakoon), and with 3-4 other $500-1000 amps (again, one of which i own, and 2-3 of which i auditioned), but I do have a passing familiarity with how a live orchestra sounds, and the LCD2-Pan Am combo do a damn good job of recreating that.

Oh well, no used ones going around so ended up purchasing new Soloist from AddictedtoAudio in Melbourne. Arrives Monday.
 Also waiting on Silver Poison Cable.

Congrats on the purchase! I think your gonna like the Burson/Audeze gumbo yaya! I would recommend a significant break in on the Burson though, I think they recommend 100 hours.

I had a Soloist for several months.  Burson support says you should allow the Soloist to warm up for a few minutes before using it.  

 

I can't say I ever noticed any differences in performance between cold and warm, but then again, I never really tried to analyze that - I just followed their advice.

 

 :D

Yeah the say a 30 minute warm up before using it, but I also have not noticed any difference so I am not as adamant about that. Break in period definately made a difference though.

Those who only own a Burson should try a 5W @ 50Ohm amp.

Just try it and you will know why! :D

Emotiva Mini-X is 50w lol.. but then you'd use a resistor or speaker tap adaptor for more useable attenuation

You forgot the $1000 power cable and the squash balls underneath the amp, b/c that is what really changes the sound signature of the set-up.

Although the truly committed will move their system off-planet to a state of true galactic rest, to prevent planetary vibrations.

Can you recommend an appropriate bluetooth receiver for this off-planet setup or do we need to crowdfund a satellite with the necessary communication protocols ?
