Has anyone heard the new version of the LF or the LG?

post #1998 of 2255
As far as I know LF 2 will add features but sound the same. There's a lot of LG impressions out there.

I like the LF v1's features better. The option for the low impedance option is ideal for my W300ANVs. On the high jack, its just too much for them.

Well with the used ones hitting the market lately people can get one if they really need it. I think the Rev 2 features are really going to improve it, not to mention new casework.

Anyone tried the LF with the TH900? Eying MH's LF there wink.gif

While it's a good price are you sure you'd want to do that before hearing my LL? ;)

Ha! Fair enough. Finishing out my dynamic rig is completely aside from whether I decide to pull the trigger on the Stax rig. But then again, it's entirely possible I'll sell all once I do. But I seriously doubt I'll be getting rid of my TH900..

What amp does those SA5000 work best with.

Well, the Zana Deux gives it that nice warmth, brings out the lows and mids. Probably my favorite. The M^3 is also warming, gives it a nice naturalness. The Beta is just way too fast, detailed, clean to match well for me. That's what the SA5000 already is. But heck, if you want even more detail, then maybe the B22 is your man. With classical it's quite nice with the soundstage and detail.

The sa5k is bright by design. I suggest tubes to tame her down a bit. Very at low volume, i prefered it with tubes in my case.

I use my balanced M^3 to tame bright headphones..

Gents, for those of you interested in LF Rev 2, please see this brief update.

Rats! I just picked up a used Liquid Fire.  Now I'll be tempted to upgrade even sooner than I expected.  I suppose it is too much to hope that all the LF2 changes will be cosmetic.  In any event, I say keep the amps coming, I'll need to get something for the office after I get addicted to the sound at home...

They are just cosmetic (in a sense). It will sound the same, you just some nice extras.
