post #2281 of 4105

i bought a few 1960s old cheap tubes from ebay...tungsol..sylvannia..westinghouse...rca..etc  (say around 20-50bucks range)

i didnt find a lack of clarity or muted highs...

difference could be airiness or bass impact between each tubes.

v enjoyable amp.

 

( my dac is the audiogd nfb10.32...i can choose between low or high gain )

You and me both. It's going to kill me if I'm unable to try both the 3 and the X before locking one in though.

Some people have told me that OTL amps "Roll-off highs". Do you find this to be the case with the 336SE?

 

It's a great looking unit that I have considered before. 


"Tube" amp's roll off highs. Change is susceptible from tube rolling.

Does that include hybrids? Or just "proper" tube amps that dump heaps of wattage through tubes to get amplification?

 

I'm wanting to pair my LCD2 with a valve amp, but now I'm having second thoughts (If there is roll-off on the highs..)

post #2286 of 4105

tubes give a kind of "organicity" to the sound, vs s/s amp....

wood vs metal of sorts, i hardly listen directly on s/s amp these days, cept for HE-6.

 

 

These are most of my cheapfinds... cant find one to complain about really. 

post #2287 of 4105

On the other hand, a solid state amp with lots of power (like the popular speaker amp mod) will give a more lively and dynamic sound. It's all about which you prefer.

Take a look at the Burson HA160, I think it is an awesome pairing.

post #2289 of 4105

That burson amp gave me an impression of a beefy robust amp...

not exactly excelling in fine details side by side with my BCL then.

Not sure how the Burson+LCD2 pairing would turn out..

give it a listen b4 u pull the trigger.

Has anyone had issues with the attachment points on the LCD 2s? The drivers appear to be suspended with just a thin sheet of metal that may be susceptible to bending. I'm just wondering if they could take a 3 ft fall onto carpet... not that I plan on dropping them but I wouldn't want to spend 1k on them only to have them break from an accident.

I plan on buying from Audeze's website so I'm assuming it will be the latest revision.

Given that I'm one of the ballsy folks here that have pulled apart the LCD2's to the bone, here's a re-post of the drivers from my personal pair I posted while ago.

 

Hope it answers your post.

Hmm, not quite what I was looking for but it was informative. I was actually referring to the pivot point where the headband meets the metal arch that holds the drivers. It just seems a little too fragile.

post #2295 of 4105

Do not unscrew that pivot point! Been there done that. LOL.

 

If you need to change pads unscrew the top black screw (using your fingers as it's made of plastic and will snap off if you get careless with a screwdriver)

 

That pivot point, despite it's fragile looks, is just fine. I haven't heard of any cases of that coming out on it's own and I've pretty much read through both LCD-2 threads + this Appreciation thread, like over 2,000 pages of user experience.

 

Of course there is always a first...
