Yes!  There are not too many artists nowadays that can top Warren Haynes with his talent.  There are others that I can't forget, though.  Joe Banamassa., Stevie Ray Vaughn, Clapton, Buddy Guy, Derek Trucks, and the list goes on ...

 

On the Grados, I really tend to love acoustic guitars, though.  The string detail really comes through well.

oh my freaking god !!!  :basshead:    (the asgard 2 just arrived)   the lcd2.2 likes the lyr, it LOVES the A2 !!

its been very rare that i've ever preferred solid state to tubes, but the lyr isn't the best match for the audeze

its good, but any reservation i had about the lcd's bass not seeming quite right, a little loose, wooly etc whatever is said in some PM's

i take it all back ,

A2 for the LCD, little dot for the grado's !!  anyone want a lyr ?? its great with grado's , lol

Jay- this is the reason I stay away from tubes.  They're great for midrange, but nothing grabs onto the lowest octave like solid state.  I find it true in pro bass gear and home audio alike.

 

How much you thinking on selling the Lyr for?  And yes, this is one more step on the way to the eventual Mjolnir :tongue_smile:

while i enjoy a good debate, i'm not debating, i love the lyr and now the asgard, and i'd be keeping the lyr if it weren't the lcd's

i'm one happy camper !!  :beyersmile:

Congratulations on the newly arrived Asgard 2, glad you love it, enjoy your new setup!!!

Still waiting on the Ear+, it is in Lloyds possession, but haven't heard anything as far as it being shipped back, and I've only been teased by the RS/Ear+ combo since I only had it for a short time and it wasn't working properly. I'm sure glad that I have the LD1+ which I've been listening to with the 80' and the 325's, and have been really enjoying them together. I haven't even listened to the RS's since I sent the Ear+ back, I'm waiting just to hear them together again so I have a really nice experience for myself when I receive it. Enjoy!!!

Anything without opamps and an output transformer.

I'm not sure how I sit with respect to the tubes vs. solid state debate, but here are my simple (sound) observations.

 

- With the Little Dot I+, the Grados really do quite well.

 

- With my Audio-GD Fun amplifier, I tend to prefer using the Beyerdynamic DT-770, and my Sennheiser HD-555 with that amp.  I don't like the Grado performance with this amp nearly as well.

 

Again, just a simple observation based on many, many hours of listening.   Then again, the Little Dot I+ does give us the best of both worlds - tubes and solid state in a nice hybrid package.  :p

Variety is the spice of life after all, I like SS and tubes, it all depends on the mood and the music.  :beerchug: have a beer and enjoy, or in my case whiskey :veryevil:
