So if ive got this right (and ive never heard any schiit gear), the audio gd are the more neutral of the two. Higher level of resolution. Hence higher resolution in the mids too. And when an amp like that with high resolution comes in board that allows the mids and lower end of the lcd 2 to come up rich and NOT lean.
Is that what you mean?
No. Both amps and dacs are neutral. All competent amps and dacs are neutral.
Because of electrical distortion or phase, who the hell knows... Some amps dig out details in the uppermid and some dig out details in the lower mids. Some seem to have more bass, some seem to have more treble. All are dead neutral. I vouch for this.
Do you think your LCD2s need to be thickened up or thinned out?
To me it makes not enough difference because recording difference is far more than amp difference.
Providing the amp and dac is competent, I buy on feature set.
If you knew where you wanted to go I could tell you, but it seems you are unsure.
The biggest difference to sound is going to be the headphone itself.
What are you using to drive the LCD2s?
