That's OK. Thanks all the same. Its not hard to imagine why you would assume desktop amp given the LCDs aren't on the go headphones.
Hmm portaphile 627/627x looks OK.
Anyone have any experience with it?

I drive my lcds with the JA AHA 120 and it's does a fine job. They have good chemistry if you like a more analog sound. I'd also highly recommend a Meier Quickstep. The lcds really aren't that hard to drive at all.

For what it's worth, I've had decent results driving the 2.2 with the CLAS -dB and the SR 71B. I'm considering the Intruder but I'm unsure as of now.

Hey

 

Any LCD2 owners in bristol, UK area? Tried a pair at recent London Head fi event and would love to get the chance to audition 

them in a quieter setting with more music.

I started reading some of the conversations had regarding amps for these phones. I have the revision 1, but after many many pages read I still have no idea how to go. I have heard the burson soloist and the asgard are good matches in very different price ranges.
I am after a portable with enough juice to run them.
I don't need something I can pocket, just something that can be run on a battery of sorts so I can take it from home to work and on holiday and use it without carrying adapters etc.
Any advice would be great.
I currently have an e17 which was fine for my previous headphones.

Yeah I second the AHA 120 if you like a more analog sound.

I'm in the process of making a 'transportable rig' I've bought an Audioquest Dragonfly to use as a DAC/Amp for my SRH840's for on the run, but I'd like to get a smallish amp to take with me when I visit my parents etc so I can take the LCD-2s with me.

 

My current short list is

  • Corda Quickstep
  • AHA-120
  • Corda Concerto (Probably the upper limit in size)

 

Anyone got any recommendations? As you can see by the Concerto I'm not looking for anything tiny, just something that isn't incredibly bulky with tubes sticking out the top :P

Personally really loving the synergy of the LCD-2's and the Burson Soloist SL.  Small enough to be transportable and a good match with the LCD-2's IMO.

Looking to sell my LCD-2's if anyone's interested!
