post #2776 of 5116

From what I've seen, more people say that the Lyr is a good match rather than a poor one. I'm on the side of it being an excellent match, but that's just me.

Do you hear ground noise with your Grado PS500?

Tried mine on my friend's Lyr. It was a solid match, and of course tube rolling can adjust the flavour. Albeit I do prefer the Mjolnir for better soundstage and control.

A tiny bit. It's not as prominent as with the Vali though. To me it's not a big deal on the Lyr.

Did a comparison between LCD2.2 and HD650.

 

Posted in the HD650 Appreciation thread... didn't wanna double post here.

I dont mind if it's tube or SS amp and must have a single ended output. What would you recommend me?
If you are going to suggest me the Schiit Lyr, many people said its a bad pairing with summit-fi cans like LCD2 and HD800. 


I would take a hard look at the ALO Pan Am. Awesome sounding amp/dac.

I had some spare wood left over from building acoustic treatments, so I slapped together a headphone stand for my LCD-2's. I'll probably build a better quality one later (and a smaller one for my D7000's).

 

Also, that ugly white thing is a prototype suspension headband I made out of a tube sock. It makes the headphones far far more comfortable than stock but looks a bit crappy at the moment, I'll be making a good looking version out of leather one of these days.

I think the Lyr sounds great with r2.2

I have my LCD2.2 on a stand near a window.

 

Should I worry about sunlight ruining the wood finish?

Sunlight can bleach out the color of many woods (including rosewood and bamboo), the only time it's okay would be on purpleheart XC's because it brings out the rich color in small doses, but over a long time it can turn it brown if I'm not mistaken. A simple Google search should provide what you need to know. Some woods darken, some lighten.

Thanks

Anywhere between $700-950 depending on condition and version. If it's a very late 2012 to 2014 pair with updated metal connectors expect to pay near the $950 amount based on condition. Old non metal angled connectors from 2011-2012 anywhere between $700-850 tops is being reasonable. Excluding custom cables and such if included but don't expect to increase the value of the headphone much or any at all.

Happens with veneered or real wooden speaker cabinets. Take the speaker clothe cover grills off and you would see the wood is darker in tonality compared to the rest of the speaker that seen exposure to sunlight. There is wood bleach/resto kits to lighten or darken the wood tonality.

I thought it might be a good idea to ask here, incase anyone has specific experience with the LCD2.2 and sunlight. 

 

Thanks!

There's quite a following for the Meier Classic for two of those phones (don't know about alpha dogs) and in that price range. With my lcd2 it's lively, neutral, not dry, plenty of power. Idk about hd800 but others like the combination.

Don't leave it in the sun light and humid areas. Constant sunlight will make the sealer coat on the LCD's wood flake and peel off (worse scenario), it also dries the wood fibres and can cause weak points in the wood grains of the wooden housing to crack. Humidity on the other hand gives off the moisture that can fully saturate the surface or inner wood fibres of the housing and thus cause weak points to crack or more susceptible to cracking. I'm no woodworker or wood technician but this from my experience.
