Oh the Lyr. The bass is deeper, tighter and a bit more punchier. However, it took my ears a little while to get the nuances.

Being a previous LCD 2.2/Lyr owner I can say that I definitely prefer it paired with solid state amplification. I just couldn't pull enough dynamics out of the LCDs with the Lyr for my personal tastes.

+1 for solid state.

I recently gave up on my maxxed Woo WA6 after i dusted off an old 90's Onkyo receiver i had just sitting in a cupboard. Wow, it simply does everything better than that WA6. The LCD's have simply jumped into another realm of performance.

I agree, I nearly get better dynamics out of it while under powering it with my AV receiver.

Question: Have you tried wa6se with your LCD 2. because many have said that it has enough power and it would give the most out of your audeze. just my observation.

I have not had the chance to try the WA6SE. I have no doubts that there are a lot of tube amplifiers that can drive the LCDs with authority, I just know my Lyr didn't do it for me. It could've been purely tube choice on the tube amplifiers I've tried it with as well, I don't know. I just know in the context of the Lyr specifically, I'd rather spend the money I'd had spent on high end tubes and upgrade straight to a solid state model.

 

I have a new amplifier coming in tomorrow though, so we'll see how that goes. It's a hybrid amp as well, in a completely different class though.

Conductor is Soloist with DAC.

Soloist and Conductor are made by Burson. And that's a fact.

How easy is the bamboo to scratch?

They should put this on a t-shirt and hand it out at CanJam.
