Did you get a warranty and documents folder?

I received a white envelope containing 2 stickers, a manual, and a warranty card.

Any difference in sound from bamboo & rosewood


Mjolnir for LCD-2s--now and forever. Nothing I've heard has better synergy with the LCD-2s. Only caveat is, the Mjolnir will not play well with many other headphones. No sound difference between the bamboo and rosewood. The rosewood is pretty, but I'd get the bamboo for the cost difference.

Some turn out well, others look a little plain. Luck of the draw, I guess. I think Bamboo is a little more consistent? Maybe I'm just nit-picking.

I'm interested in upgrading from the Lyr, can you elaborate on what you mean by this? My other pair is HE-500, thanks!

The Mjolnir pairs best with headphones that have a warm, dark signature. The Mjolnir itself runs a little bright, forward, and lean. The Mjolnir is an excellent pairing with anything from Audeze, and is also terrific with the HD650--giving it a very neutral, tight, and dynamic signature.

 

Headphones that don't pair especially well with the Mjolnir, include the HD800, HE-500, HE-6, and most of the Beyerdynamic, AKG, and Grado lines. The HE-500 seems quite harsh out of the Mjolnir--especially compared to the Lyr.

interesting comment, i guess the "house signature" continues into the higher range...

when i had the asgard n lyr, i get that sentiment too.

Actually I wouldn't call the Mjonir bright that description belongs to the B22, what the Mjonir is neutral to borderline cold sounding which elevates the already peaks in some of the other headphones mentioned that don't synergize well with it. HE-6 has a harsh treble, Grado's and the T1 have sibilance with the highs and can be annoying with vocals that reach higher notes, HD800 and Mjonir is a hit and miss and very well depends on your source as well a few here like this combo, the HE-500 is just weird sounding and hard to describe. No matter the amplification, it would only reveal these headphone sound flaws more as this is more dependent on the transducer rather than the amplifier, unless you go tube's which roll off the naunces to a certain degree of personal enjoyment.

the new HE-6 i have isn't as harsh as the older one i have. the HE-6 can have a hard and unforgiving treble (only on poor recordings, quite controlled with a good speaker amp, low power will make it razor sharp), but its not sibilant/peaky like T1 (with WA2, this is remedied to a decent extent). or hot like HD 800 (GSX or tube amps fix this quite nicely) or shouty and shrill like a Grado (unfortunately, grado will always be harsh unless you're willing to use an extremely thick syrupy amp with rolled off tubes).

Hi LCD-2 owners,

 

Have anyone tried the LCD-2 paired with WA3? I'm really, really interested on getting the LCD-2 but I fear it would not be a good match for the OTL WA3. 

post #2323 of 9913
I tried that setup at the last VA / DC / MD meet and thought it to be underpowered, even with the mods I did to my WA3. Barry S tried his at the meet on it and may have opinions also.

Anything from Woo Audio is not suitable for the LCD2's except the WA5LE and the WA7 and maybe few of the other prototypes that's been released into the wild.
