@mikoss felt the same way. So glad I didn't pony-up the extra grand. Ofc there'll be a ton of dissenters - Tyll (himself!) claims the 3 does just about everything better.
If I remember right, Tyll also said that, if LCD-3 did not exist, he still would be quite content to live with the LCD-2 as a flagship-calibre HP. Hinting perhaps that the diff he heard may not be substantial to warrant the diff in moola back then.
Quite right. Sounds like we're both happy with the LCD-2. IMO they're desert-island calibre.
Heh - me too. I hear there's those actively seeking out some of the pre-fazors - can see them becoming some of the more sought-after cans. I for one have no intention of upgrading mine to the fazor model. True - they don't image as well as some cans (my AKG's image better and my HD-800's are on the way) but there's little I would want to change about them. Not if it means sacrificing any of what they do well now.
When you are talking about LCD-2 being better than LCD-3, I guess you are talking about Rev2? LCD-2F vs LCD-3F?
I need to find European person who would trade my LCD-2F to LCD2.2. Mine are still under warranty till 4-11-17
I think you'll find many different answers to the first question. There are many who love the 3F. Another issue will be that even within the same variant of LCD they are not all alike - part of the Audeze legacy will be that no two pairs are exactly the same, and according to Tyll at InnerFidelity there seems to be a trend over time in their toning.
If you really want to do what you say in the second line - give the classifieds a whirl. To upgrade to fazors is USD$250 and shipping both ways, plus you lose your headphones for a few weeks (from Europe). There may also be things you'll miss: the fazors were said to improve imaging. Tough call only you can make.
I found the same!
