I'm a big fan of Tchaikovsky's concerto. It was one of the first pieces that I really appreciated. I like the Sibelius but I prefer his symphonies. I have about 5 different versions (the old Karajan still my fave) and even had his short 7th symph play at my wedding as incidental music while peeps were waiting. 

 

I also love Beethovens Violin concerto. If you haven't heard Barber's Violin concerto op.14 I can highly recommend it as a great late romantic piece.

Oh, Beethoven's violin concerto is wonderful.  One of my favs.  I will listen to Barber's tonight.  I always get excited for (recommended) new music.  Thanks.

Hey, that's a nice rig you have there, sir.  gs1000.gif  Ha ha... I took your advice (along w/reviews and whatnot) on the DAC-2, as you know.  We are Decware bros besides that.

Don't want to turn this into a music thread, Lug, but just wondered what you thought of the Back Harpsichord concertos, and whether you prefer them on original instrument or piano. I'm a piano man myself.

post #1324 of 9677
I'm not Lug but generally I don't think Bach's harpsichord music is at its best on the piano (and I'm a pianist as well). Some of the harpsichord sound is essential to the fugal character of some of his works, for example.

That said, the music is great enough that it has much to say almost regardless of instrument.

Does anyone know what the actual difference between the LCD 2 and 3 is besides the color and wood? I assume the driver parts. Does anyone know the driver part numbers? Does Audeze make their own drivers or outsource? I'm very curious about what makes the 3 sound better other than the affect the price has on perception.

Sorry for the rapid fire questions, thanks!

The best thing for you to do is have both in house on your own rig / setup for a few weeks.  Take your time and compare them as you see fit.  Then you can make your own decision and sell the one you like the least.  That's what I did.

I've tried to like some of the Harpsichord recordings but must admit the piano makes them much more dynamic and whole. Plus they were written for 'keyboards' so purists can relax in the knowing that if the piano had been invented in Bach's day I'm sure he would have used it :) 

 

Still love Gould's recordings on columbia, especially the couple he recorded with Bernstein conducting.

Here are my thoughts between the LCD-2 vs. LCD-3s. Yes, the LCD-3s have new drivers...much thinner and even quicker.

Perhaps somewhat expensive compared to some amps, but after a week, the only pain I felt was in having to turn it off to go to bed.

It sounds wonderful with LCD-2's.

I second the Taboo and the LCD-2!

post #1335 of 9677
Thirded. It is less of a bargain than it was before the re-design, but the Taboo III is, I understand, a real advance on the II. And it would take one heck of an amp to make me part with my Taboo II...

It is expensive, but competitive for anyone with that kind of money to spend.
