I've heard upgrading/redesigning the crossover can have a tremendous effect on their SQ

I may try it with mine someday if I don't give them away first....
It's super easy to get them apart. I'm guessing it won't be too hard to solder on a new capacitor. (my dad has a masters as an electrical engineer, go figure)

Just got Sennheiser HD650's. Will update this post with pictures in a bit.

Do you happen to know if it's just native-OS compatible (reading ALAC files), or if it works with, say, a Rockboxed Classic running FLAC as well? Don't know if there's any Apple-specific software inside the thing that would prevent FLAC or WAV compatibility.

 

I'd look it up, but I'm too lazy at the moment.

I've never used the dac on the i20, just the digital output.

The DAC in the i20 is better than the DAC in an iPod but it will fall short of many other "stand alone" DACs.  The i20's real strength is being able to bypass the DAC in an iPod and send the signal to a better DAC.  This will make the iPod function in the same ballpark as any other digital music server.

Is that a Colorware pair of HD800's?

I was just thinking that... It seems like you've got a really thirsty set of cans, and a shot-glass for them to drink out of.

LCD-2's are not that hard to drive. Actually, they tremendously easy to drive and aren't too picky on the amp end. Of course, they sound better out of a quality amp, but the E12 has more than enough power to power the LCD-2.

Sounds very good honestly, on par with an O2 at least, less warm and lush than my Pan Am, but overall if you wanted to run the LCD-2s purely out of the E12 you won't be missing much, you can get about 70-75% out of the LCD-2s from the E12. I'm not sure why people assume that just because I'm not running these out of some ridiculous $1000 big dog amp these don't sound very good, but in actuality the LCD-2's sound pretty darn good out of anything that outputs like 0.7-1.5W. Just my 2 cents on this :)

Yep, amen to that, these aren't that hard to drive, honestly i can run my LCD-2s out of my cMoy, though usually my LCD's are running out of a Pan Am, so power isn't too much of an issue for me...

I started a mod thread for the Minimus 7's. I went to Fry's earlier and purchased a new pair of capacitors, but it'll take a bit to get my dad to get out the soldering iron.
