If you like craptastic and non existant highs and muted treble then yeah why not.

What differences between the WA6-SE and the WA5-LE designs cause such a large difference in treble presence with Audeze cans?

I'm not the biggest fan of the Vali Paired with the LCD-2, if I were you I would just stick with what you have.

 

Does that mean my WA3 would be better than the Vali to drive the LCD-2?

Whole lot of differences in sound but not that much if you compare it side by side, there's some schematics floating around that I've seen which I will not link here (if they are still around). From a particular perspective the WA6-SE is not much different to the 336SE and the Chazz 2, slap a choke in and you got yourself something similar to drive low z and high z headphones but that noisy background will still be there, would love to see some measurements on the O-scope for that amp. I haven't seen schematics for the WA5/LE though have heard it and I can tell you it is not worth $3.5k. Build quality is nice though.

LCD-2 work with tube amps given you use an impedance adapter which is just resistors built into a plug body or you could do in-line ones with a cable.

Having never tried the WA3, I can't really tell you. I wouldn't worry too much about amping until you actually get the LCD-2, try it out with your current equipment first and if you aren't satisfied get something later.

Best advice yet.

Hello again,

I am new to angled pads and wanted to know if the LCD-2s were intended to sit on the head at a specific position. The way they look suggests that Audeze wanted to maximize the pressure at the front in order to increase the angle. I normally orient my headphones so that my ears sit in the middle but I'm noticing that I can slide them forwards and backwards quite a bit. If I have the front of my ears touch the front the vocals seem to come from within my head, and if I wear them all the way back I get the opposite effect. I drew a sketch of what I'm trying to say.

 

The black oval is a head and the brown circles are the LCD-2s :tongue_smile:. The clusters represent the amount of music located within the spatial region. It's exaggerated a bit to make it easier to visualize. Do speakers project sound that appears to be coming from behind? I feel that having the headphones centered are more comfortable;however, I really like how they sound when i push them forward.:o2smile:.

The wa6-se and lcd-2 combo is very good. I would never consider it muted

You're entitled to your opinion and that is fine but there are many sources and reviewer's here that I would trust with there opinion that would disagree to that otherwise.

Just listening to my LCD2s this morning...still as awed today as I was all those years ago, nothing I haven't already said. 

 

But then again I haven't plugged in headphones for several years, so its new toy syndrome all over again!!!  :eek:
