O.K. I mean, we all know that I'm hooked. I am bound not to stop here. Curiosity will drive me to order the SR325e as well, and then, and then...

Hay Jay! I listened very briefly to the EL-8 a couple of weeks ago, comparing to the LCD-2 and HE560 and a prototype of the forthcoming Dharma. I quite liked the HE560 and Dharma from my listening.

 

When you've had them for enough time to give your impressions, I'd be very curious to your thoughts.

well, for now, i can definitely say the el-8 needs some burn in, folks are reporting up to 200hrs. and right now, i'm just a bit over 100.

and it really has improved. 

initially the upper midrange,and treble was a little problematic , it seemed something was in the background , recessed,

and the treble a little ragged.

i have to admit, my expectations were high going in, so when i first put them on, i was a little disappointed, and thought there was no way they were going to sound good to me. and now, they sound pretty good, and may have some more improvement to come.

Thanks Jay for getting back to me so quickly.

 

My initial impressions didn't wow me in the same way as the LCD-2 and X did. The 560 was the real surprise for me. I had heard it last July but this time  it really impressed. Funny how impressions change from one listening session to another. I think the Dharma may be a winner also. Big thumbs up. I need to hear it again in final version.
 
But, the EL-8 sounded brighter to me-but it was a really quick listen and lacked that full, lush LCD sound.
 
Recently went to a retail audio shop and was able to listen to the LCD-2 and X for a more extended period of time in addition to either the Grado GS or PS 1000. I don't remember which, but they were nice. I remember the price was about the same as the LCD X.
 
I never listened much to the X figuring why bother since I don't see paying much over 1K. But, I gotta say the X was appreciably better than the LCD-2 which I've always liked at meets. I was like, DANG DUDE -this is pretty nice :wink_face:
 
But I don't see paying close to 2K.......
