I plugged in the LCD's today. I won't say what the source was. I'm awaiting my DAC-2 in a week or so and selling my gold fillings for a Violectric of which one I am not certain yet but perhaps the 200. The LCD's remind me of my most favorite speaker the Martin Logan CLLS II's driven with Krell amps. For me it's like wearing a pair of Martin Logan CLS II's on my head. They are a wonderful experience. So natural and smooth and effortless. Just amazing. I've never really had headphones before and frankly I do not like headphones. But the LCD's havecompletely changed my mind. They are so engaging, so seductive. They make me completely forget I'm wearing headphones. So nuanced and natural. They have a beautiful presentation of low level detail and their dynamics are so lifelike. I cannot wait to give them the DAC and Amp they deserve.
