post #3001 of 9685

I really thought so.... Copy from older posting about new ADZ-5 cable: "You've got the brand new and according to Audez'e 'better' cable. I just received mine and yes it's a Canare speaker wire:"

I've started a poll to find Head Fi's favourite amp to drive the LCD 2.

So after 20 votes in the LCD 2 amp poll ($200-$1000 category), we're starting to see certain amps dominate:

I'm quite surprised by how well Schiit Lyr is doing! In the $1000-$2000 category after 11 votes we're not yet seeing any one amp dominate to such a large extent:

That's really interesting, when I was looking into the Lyr I kept running into people saying it was a poor match with the LCD-2. Guess they were the minority.

Loving them, although I'm making a tonal adjustment coming from Beyerdynamic t90's.  The mids are every bit as good as I've heard, the treble is nice and clean.  There is no overpowering bass on these cans; very neutral.  I'd say the bass is about on par with the t90's, though the mids are more prominent, and the treble less so.

I came from the T90's too and pretty much agree with that :) First thing i noticed was the clamping and heaviness of the LCD-2's! Feel like the T90's are a little on the bright side and came across too piercing sometimes.

I wonder when Tyll will have his review online. I'm really excited to see what he thinks.

What a fantastic and detailed look at the current state of Audeze's offerings! Of course now I want to do a side by side demo between my 2F, the X and the 3.:D 

 

It will also be interesting to see where the company is at a few years down the line. Who knows what else is in store, considering how quickly things have progressed from the initial release of the 2.

The conclusion seems to be that the latest LCD 2/3 with Fazor have better imaging but not as much bass as he would like.  Looks like the LCD 2 is getting removed from the wall of fame.

I don't think so :-)

If you scroll to the bottom of the review, page 2, i.e.:

 

http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/audeze-lcd-x-fazor-and-fresh-listen-current-lcd-2-and-lcd-3-page-2

 

Next to the LCD 3 and LCD X it says "wall of fame" but next to LCD 2 it only says "stuff we like". This seems to imply the LCD 2 is being removed from the wall of fame?
