Why not order straight from Audeze?

I got one coming but it is going to be a while before I get it, week to ten days is what they told me when I ordered. I sure hope I like it after all the trouble I had to go through to get one.

You missed some then wink.gif i have all 4 lcd-2 models in stock

I bookmarked you so I don't miss you next time. I'd cancel my other order but I have already changed my mind twice, I'd feel guilty doing that to them again <G>

Ive owned my LCD 2 for about a year now-all i have to say is what a wonderful listening experience- since then i've seriously beefed up my system by adding a moon audio silver dragon V3 cable and rolled EAT ECC 88 cool valves into my schiit LYR and Uber bifrost USB DAC and its quite the experience. The icing on the cake is my buttkicker advance tactile transducer.    

I appreciate how life like the mids are and how the bass goes all the way down and stays tight and how clear all the frequencies are represented to the ear.  With my current set up- I can easily say is well exceeds the LCD 3.

And believe or not the same case repeated !

They charge me the shipping fee in the invoice, they just don't pay any attention at all on my RMA.

Just FYI though not making any ruckus before wait AGAIN for their explanation. Totally sucks.

First time I connected the LCD2 into my reference balanced dac and amp in over two years was last night...the first thing that popped into my mind was the snare drum.  Same thing happened the first time I connected them balanced...that snare, what a snare.

I was under the impression that the X was brighter and the 3 is warmer...your the first to go the other way.  How so?

To me, the LCD-X are more balanced sounding, whereas the LCD-3 are more refined and concerned with details. The bass on the LCD-X is quite solid sounding and very, very punchy and tight, I think the LCD-3 are more suitable for Jazz, classical and acoustic music.

My take on the lcd x and 3 is i feel like people's voice sounds kind of fake on lcd x than 3

Hi everyone! I recently got a hold of an LCD 2 rev 3 and i just want to ask for your recommended cable for around $200? :)

post #3191 of 3583

I got my LCD2 yesterday and have been listening to everything I can get my hands on. I have head people talk about burn-in on these as anywhere from 1 hour to 50 hours...I was wondering what you guys thought. I do have a problem, maybe I got a bad pair, but all the reviews I have seen speak most highly of the bass, not just the quantity but the quality too. Mine have plenty of quantity and go really low, but I am not hearing the texture and tone I was expecting. Is this likely a burn-in issue or should I maybe think about returning these while I still can. I am using a Lyr amp and I also tried my LDMk4 and it was even worse on the LD. I am hoping they just need a little more time to open up.

I think this also depends on the song. Try some songs from albums like The Very Best of Smooth Jazz :)

 Personally, I  reccomend Moon Audio.com dragon series for brighter sound or thecablepro.com for bass orented reproduction. you may have to go a little more higher than $200

You know Brian of BTG Sold me a custom built Audeze cable for around $160, you may want to check with him, he's a fairly inexpensive and high quality Cable outfit

I think BTG or HPL would be the way to go for you, Battousai.
