Audeze playing it safe, probably (or perhaps the updated drivers can only handle 15w).

Could be that they decided to add a 5W buffer there?

It's always possible, since people will always try to test the limit. As the CTO of Emotiva said, "We don't officially state that the amplifiers are 2 ohm stable because history has shown that people will then want to run them into 1 ohm loads."

 

It's also possible that they changed the time restriction. The LCD-2 can handle 15w for 200ms, perhaps they can handle 20w for 50ms.

Either way...I'd never take them to that level. :smile:

having the right amp can really make a difference with the LCD2,  i had the lyr, it was good, but the bass seemed a little loose or something, then had a asgard 2 here briefly , much , much better , bass was tight, snappy, the overall sound was clearer,

today, the burson soloist got here, now we're cooking , now to spend some extended time with it

Glad to hear that you're liking the Burson.

dont tell me that. i just concvinced myself i didnt need the Soloist SL because of the cost, and since my magni does better power wise @ 50ohms.

but...did you get the original or the SL?

the original, not SL, got it used off the sale thread, i bet the magni drives the lcd pretty good, i'm a big fan of schiit !

Agreed, running them from my speaker amp makes them sound a fair bit better than with my M-Stage. Clearer, more detailed, faster, a bit more bass, deeper extension, less fatiguing, and better separation.

i see you have some emotiva gear, i actually went their place after i picked up my lcd2s, i spent about an hour and a half listening to some gear

and talking, i had kinda been thinking about trying their stealth dac

Pretty much exactly my thoughts on the subject, except I went from Lyr to Emotiva min-X. LOL.

They make some surprisingly nice gear, I'm happy with them, and the customer service is excellent. Right now, I've been testing the LCD-2's on the XPA-200, and they are a great pairing. However, I'm most likely going to do what M-13 did and get a Mini-X. If the Mini-X performs like the XPA-200, I doubt I'll be able to find a "headphone" amp anywhere near as good with the LCD-2 as it is for even double the price (plus it's on sale!).
