lol. welcome back. Why did u sell yours originally?
I am personally at the stage where i am stuggling to chose between the HE-500 and LCD 2.2. My HE-500 has a edge in the amp since its connected to the emotiva 100x mini (4 pin xlr to banana plugs) while the LCD 2.2 is connected to Asgard. Both off of Maverick D2 dac.
Maybe ill just keep both lol..... so hard to choose.
I'm running my HE-500 on the Emotiva and will be doing the same for the LCD-2. You should really get balanced cables for it. I'm also doing XLR to banana (fully balanced I like to think of LOL)
I'm kinda excited to see if Audez'e has made any sonic improvements since 2012. I noticed a BIG jump in quality from the July 2011 pair to the July 2012 pair. I literally thought they had mistakenly put LCD-3 drivers into my Rosewood cups. Both directly from Audez'e, new not second hand or anything. I took off the headphone and counted the six magnet bars and had to remind myself it must be the LCD-2. The difference was ridiculous.
I honestly think this varying production quality or steady improvements actually account for why some people think there is a huge difference between the LCD-2 and LCD-3, while others don't see a huge difference but a small improvement. Might really depend on when their particular LCD-2/3 was made.
