Just a followup on my LCD2 REV1 and movies. I watched a few more movies and I am back to square one. Neutrality depends on the material at hand. On one CGI animated movie (studio voices) I had to take down treble by 5 DB at 8-12 KHZ because the details were too strong for the scene at hand. On one movie the LCD2s were severely starved of top end and the whole presentation was muffled and bloated, this was a lower budget movie with real time speech.
I felt that on average the LCD2s R1s were quite good with CD music material, I will sample with more movies until to get a better understanding. Seemed so silly to make such quick conclusions and post about it with a sample size of 1.
That's pretty bad when you have to turn down the treble of the R1.
Movies, TV shows, music. There should be a standard.
