Hi, i got a question for you guys. i am about to pull the trigger on some LCD2 i just recently bought a Burson Conductor and my present headphone is a Lawton Audio modded Denon d-5000 with angled pads and wood cups my question is to those who actually heard the combo with a Burson Conductor or a Burson 160d or ds . Between the 2 cans the lcd and the denons does the lcd2 sound alot better than the d-5000 and what percentage would you give 20% better 40% . thanks in advance for your imput.
I've had the D5000 (J$ pads) with my 160D as well as the LCD2s. 'Better' is not a descriptive term for what you can expect.
You lose the fun low end punch and sparkle up top of the D5000's. You can gain a lot of clarity in the mid range and a more natural sound with the LCD2. If you've grown used to the Denons the LCD's may come off as boring by comparison.
I suppose by hifi standards here, the LCD2 is 'better' on all accounts.
