As the topic says, I'm wondering about what to get headphone-wise between the LA7000 and LCD-2.Couldn't really find any other thread here on the subject, and I guess that makes sense because people wouldnt really put these two up against each other anyways, but seeing as I own a pair of 7000s, I'm really curious.
I currently own the Denon AH-D7000, and really enjoy them. There are, of course shortcomings I really feel should be rectified with these phones, pretty much what Lawton Audio does.
The thing is, though, that aprox 1000 usd for the mod kind of puts me smack down with a new pair of Audeze LCD-2 as well as keeping my D7000 stock. Yes, I could also get either a pair of HD-800 or T1, but I've been listening to both of them and I can't say I'm spellbound by their sound-signature. Not yet, at least. I guess the 800s are still a safe bet, but they kind of sound too shrilling for me up high, and my retarded brain keeps telling me I lack the bass-punch / feel that I really love in the Denons.
Can these two cans be compared soundwise? I really love the bass I'm getting from my D7000s, even though the whole construction shakes and vibrates due to the poor damping of the housings. I've heard great things about the LCD-2s, and they really look interesting and keeps getting raving reviews.
So, what would you guys do? Go for the L7000, or get the LCD-2? Amps for driving them will either be the matrix m-stage with opamp-swap or Head-Direct EF-1 with sexy mullard-tubes. I guess I could do another amp as well, like the Lyr or something similar priced.
Thanks for your time :)
