I appreciate the feedback anyway, but I sort of have the outlook of....why buy something of lower quality when you can just get something you really want and not have buyers remorse later haha.
I got paid really good commission this pay, so figured I would treat myself! haha, so it's sort of free money.
After researching it, I have settled on defintely getting the lyr+bifrost and lcd-2s, I am a bit confused though as to what options i should pick on their website...different tubes and such.
I am sort of stuck on....how should I connect these up to my macbook pro 15 retina which i just got...its has digital and analogue through the headphone jack, so i can use the optical....I think i need to buy an adaptor for that though?, also do i need to buy an aftermarket speaker cable and also the connection from the dac to the computer, and the dac to the amp etc?
sorry for all the annoying questions guys!
Not sure if this is the right thread, but I got the idea of getting these headphones from here if that helps!
Isn't the risk of having buyers remorse even bigger when you are investing A LOT of money? Have you listened to the LCD's? If this really is like you said, your first headset, isn't there a big risk that you are having unreasonable/distorted expectations? What headphones have you listened to before? What are your expectations of the rig you are set out to get? The thing is, even tho someone might call the LCD2/3's bass kings for example, doesn't mean they will produce to biggest quantities of bass (in this case far from it). They have great bass sure, but if you want a club-like-feeling in your head, I'm afraid the LCD's won't live up to those expectations. I realize I'm assuming a lot of things here, but like most people entering the world of headphones (myself included) we're usually looking for something fun and engaging with a certain WOW factor to it when we get started (something very bass-quantity-capable for example). If I would have had a listen to say the HD800 when I first go in to this game I would have HATED it due to it's neutralness (/"lack" of bass as I would have called it back then). But today, thanks to everything I've learned on my head-fi journey I'm really astounded when I get to try a pair. And believe me, it's ALL ABOUT THE JOURNEY!! Incremental upgrades is the greatest thing in the world for me!
When reading through my comment above I realize I sound kind of critical, but I honestly just want to help.
