Should I just get a nice DAC right now and wait for amp later? Or should I upgrade both?

 

Budget is not terribly high. So I'm thinking of just getting a ~$500 DAC right now. Any suggestions? Thank you

 

I think you should definitely check out the Bifrost from Schiit. I have the Lyr amp and I will get the Bifrost soon.

FYI there's information in the new audeze lcd3 thread - based on responses from other Audeze support staff - that casts doubt on the idea fazor has or even can be added to the LCD3 and therefore possibly the 2 as well.

With all this fazor drama going on, i gotta say that i was a surprised that the sound on my new LCD2

was bit airier and brighter than i was expecting. Still love the sound tho.

As one wit more or less implied, audeze or part of their customer support may have set their fazors on stun!

Is there any significance to the serial number prefix changing from 532 to 542 in January?

The full line of Audeze headphones now includes fazors, but fazors can't currently be retrofitted to LCD-2s/LCD-3s.

i don't know but it seems everytime Audeze makes a change to their headphones they end up going further away from the "Audeze sound". They seem to be getting airier, brighter and more nuetral, which is a shame because there are so many other headphones that do that. I for one am glad I have a Rev 1 LCD-2.

I only had the chance to audition a Rev 2 once. Manufactured back in 2012 I think. Tomorrow I'll receive my pair manufactured on March 14th, 2014. It has been a while that I tried the Rev 2 but maybe I'll here a difference. Let's see how significant a difference it is.

Audeze is continuing to make technical improvements--which is a good thing. The fazors add detail and coherence, but it's still only fine-tuning the drivers. Even the more neutral LCD-X still has some of the traditional Audeze signature, but if you want a lush liquid Audeze sound, the LCD-3 has it.

Yes there was evidently confusion in how various Audeze CS responses were being interpreted. Audeze cleared that up - fazors are indeed now standard issue for all star fleet, er I mean Audeze product

I'm just really curious when they began implementing it. Maybe Tyll will have the answer when his article goes up. I have a feeling it was in January.

If you like the rev 1 darker sound, do not swap to new ear pads.

Is there anywhere they specifically said the LCD-2's now have fazor? Their posts in the LCD-3 thread only specifically mention the LCD-3.

In this post, it mentions Audeze fitting all models with fazors.
