Audeze LCD-2 Impressions Thread - Page 211

post #3151 of 9926

it's the same as having a stereo speaker system, i guess the fact there is only one connector for both channels' output (trs, 4-pin xlt), is a little confusing

 

it's 50 Ohms per channel, L and R, so there are actually two mono amplifiers, inside each stereo amplifier, driving each one of the L and R channel

 

with the old lcd2 each mono amplifier drives a 50 Ohm load

 

if you are asking because of some amp power output specs you saw than it's a little more complicated than that

After about 5-6 hours, I can hear more soundstage, a somewhat more neutral sound, and pretty much the same everything else. The warm mids are somewhat gone in favor of a more neutral sound. Also, they are little less bassy than before but its not that noticeable unless I play a song like Koan Sound - Wide Open. The rumble that was in that song is there but just not as much as before. I am not sure what they raised the impedance to but they are easier to drive now. I was testing them out with my E17 and I could barely hear any differences using my O2.

Yeah I'm my amp puts out 14 watts per channel at 8 ohms so I'm just trying to approximate how much power it could put out with the LCD2.
post #3155 of 9926

that's easy to calculate

 

8 ohm / 50 ohm * 14W = 2.24W per channel

Thanks. I just wasn't sure if 50 ohms was the right value to use.

If Magni Pairs well with LCD2, then definitely O2/ODAC will also synergize well :)

 

 

Do LCD2 really benefit when they go balanced? There is noticeable difference?

Any of you guys tried your LCD-2 off a decently designed/built gainclone amp...LM3875 etc ? I think they run around 6 watts total.

 

Also, would 22 AWG x 4-strand be too thick for LCD-2s mini-XLR ports or just too thick in general for flexibility ?

I've never held 22AWG and it is difficult to estimate its thickness off of isolated DIY cable product photos.

I am ordering LCD2 Fazor Bamboo - Microsuede pads

 

Is it okay? or should go with leather pads?

 

 

Also, should I order balanced cable? LCD2 really benefit from going balanced?

 

My Target amp is AGD- NFB 28 If balanced.

 

Single End its NFB 11.

 

 

Thanks!

I have that exact pair.  I'm in Atlanta Georgia USA, a relatively hot climate for several months a year.  I went with the microsuede to have them hopefully be cooler.  I can say so far they are much cooler than the leather pads I've had on other cans in the past (Denon's).  At the last 2 meets I attended, everyone who tried them on found then quite comfortable, and several other LCD owners commented that they found them more comfortable than their own leather.  

post #3161 of 9926

^^ I tried them at the meet. The comfort was much improved over the leather for me.

I bought HE-500s first and really like them, but the LCDs are on a whole new level to my ears - loving them!

 

Still have my T1s too so now I split time between the two.


coolness.  I'm splitting time between my T90's and LCD 2's

My expierence is the stronger the amp, the better for the Ortho's. If you are barely pushing 1 watt, then that is not good enough. I'm not even sure that my Asgard 2 can power the LCD-2's when I'm getting them. 

 

Cable's are a different thing that I haven't done enough testing with.
