bfreedma, we have almost the same gear

Are you using balanced for your LCD3?

I haven't had that much time with the BHA1 yet


Yes, I use the balanced connector for the BHA1. One element of the Audeze phones I really like is the ease of switching from balanced to SE and the quality of the connectors.

Enjoy your gear!

I haven't compared the DAC2 to those in my system but certainly don't consider it dark or a bad match for the LCD3. My experience is pretty well aligned with MacedonianHero's.

I am using a Anedio D2 with my BHA-1 and LCD2v2.

 

To be honest I'm not sure that that BHA-1 is needed - the D2 does a pretty decent job with the LCD2v2.

Peter,
I replaced my PWD MkII with a Bricasti M1 and is feeding my 727II ans SR-009... Wow!
What a sound! Cristal clear, detailed, coming from the darkest background, awesome bass. This DAC is amazing.

Cool. Glad you're liking what you're hearing. I'll have to dig more into the Bricasti M1. 

 

Cheers

Well I'd hope so. You went from a 4k DAC to an 8k DAC. lol

Good to know there are still some returns on your money at that stage.

 

Still waiting for my Bryston.  Want it bad now

No kidding $7800 to $4000 and no one pays $4000 ;)  For the extra $800 the PWD2 cost over the DAC-2 it is a great upgrade.  Freaking huge but otherwise well worth it.

Gread hardware, but really bad quality of picture - you should not move the camera during making a pic.
Have fun!

Yes, took it with a phone.

 

It has a lot of trouble staying focused... really my chief complaint with the droid bionic.  considering it is a phone, I'm cool with that being my chief complaint
