Hey since u guys are talking about amps I have an asgard 2 and uber bifrost comming in how do you guys think they will sound with the lcd 2? I didn't get the lyr because of the noise floor and it didn't sound flat to me.

That's what I currently have. I've noticed that the Bifrost Uber has a characteristic of making the vocals sound amazing. Coming from my Cowon J3 and a Claro Halo the imaging, soundstage, and bass all improved as well. I connected the Asgard 2 to my J3 and found that it retained the J3's signature but added just a tad bid of smoothness all throughout. If you plan to having a setup that allows you to pick up .05 - 1dB differences in the music I'm sure there are better setups, but if you want to just kick back and enjoy your tunes this is a really awesome setup. Don't get me wrong, there is still more detail than on my J3 or Claro Halo but the smoothness reduces the possibility of  this setup becoming analytical. I'd say that this whole setup is on the warm side of neutral.

I actually love the pairing of the Aune T1 with the LCD 2. I'm still going to get a complete SS DAC/amp solution soon, as I'm never sure how much the tube is colouring the sound.

 

But the amp section is a great pairing!

Mmm, can't beat some good old natural lighting. Awesome photos man!

 

Also what is that stand you're using? Did you make it yourself?

Haha - nothing compared to your reddit masterpieces mate :D

 

It's a Fischer Audio stand - it's called "The Curve":

Have been busy, moved houses several times.  Just quitening down now, have yet to unpack the reference downstream gear, not sure when I can do that and unleash these babies to their crushing potential once again.

What are the current suggested approaches to increasing comfort of the LCD-2.2 for someone with a larger than average size head?

 

My main problems are pressure on my ears and to a lesser extent the top of my head.

 

I'll apologize in advance for not reading all 158 pages of this thread.

You should consider ordering a set of extended yoke rods from Audeze. I've see several cases where users with larger heads installed the longer yoke rods for a better fit.

Thanks for the suggestion, I actually did notice those right after I posted and ordered them and a set of the LCD-3 pads. Hopefully that'll help, but worried that the clamping pressure will still be too strong for my tastes.

Try stretching them out a bit, the clamping force may lessen.

 

Do you currently have the newer LCD-2 pads or the older ones?

My guess is the yokes will take care of most of your problems. I wouldn't try bending the headband unless you need to after installing the new yokes.
