Well...my wallet officially hates you all. Just pulled the trigger on a pair of LCD-2's after hearing them at the meet.
The HD800's had stellar imaging and felt effortless in their presentation, but also felt a little fatiguing. They were a bit brittle in the highs.
The T1's were a little bright for my taste as well...I'm coming from the HD650's after all. They also felt a little lean on the bottom.
I only heard the HE6 protos and wasn't as blown away as I was by the....
LCD-2's. Wow...the tonality, the effortless natural vocal reproduction, the tight, deep and controlled bass...never bloated, but extended. Ive seen the described as being a crystal clear window to the music and found that to be spot on. Also liked that they sounded very good driven by my LD MKIII and Gilmore Lite amps, so I can wait a bit before upgrading the amplification.
I doubt I want to hear the answer to this, but what do those of you who own the LCD-2's prefer for the cables?
Also heard the RS-1's and found it really interesting what you can achieve by changing the housing and venting on the same drivers that are in my SR125's. Also amazing was the difference from the quarter modded 'comfies' to the large pads that come on the RS-1's. It's a completely different sonic signature, especially on the top end.
As far as amps, I really enjoyed the Woo amp through the Cary DAC...nice synergy. Wish I'd had the coin to take it home.
I was also impressed by the Shiit Asgard. I found it very neutral and felt like it had power to spare.
Thanks again to Frank for hosting and for everyone for sharing!
