It seems that, if its expensive and/or popular enough, it gets automatically labeled as hard to drive or needs a high end power plant to sound right. So much misinformation.

It likes a little current yeah, but it's nothing I'd call otherworldly.
Time for us to start the headphone + wall socket thread
BROOOOOOOOOOO. Whats up man!
Yeah man I've been so busy with stuff I honestly haven't had time to come home to head-fi and actually post.
Dude have you heard of a Quesarrito? It's when they melt the cheese using the griddle onto the tortilla, then they build whatever burrito you need. My favorite is brown rice, carnitas, mild salsa, TONS of corn salsa + sour cream. What you get is about the size of my bicep and it's good for showing your bros on FB what kind of life mistakes you make.
Peter from Double Helix Cables has this thing he called the Quad-Meat Marvel, where you don't get anything except 4 kinds of meat in a burrito bowl, salsa, sour cream, and cheese.
I see you're running HD650 with Asgard II. Headphone amp game proper lol. How do you like it compared to Lyr? I feel like it's a viable replacement, it's just the cost for Lyr is justified by tube rolling.
I've actually got a triple Schiit stack currently. It's a little indulgent. I just can't bring myself to sell off either. The Asgard II is a great amp...clean and resolving. It powers the hd650 nicely, but there is just something special about the lyr on good tubes. You have to work at it a bit, but certainly worth it when you find a special combo.
All your talk of delicious food has made my regret my breakfast choice of Raisin Bran.
I'm pretty amazed how good they sound out of my little AudioEngine D1 usb dac/amp thingy...obviously it scales way up when I drive them with my Meier gear, but it's plenty good for some web surfing and farting around online.
So.... I'm in the midst of liquidating a lot of my gear to get some used LCD2's. Apparently theres been quite a few revisions and come bearing questions. What is the RMA version I've heard about a few times? The LCD2 rev. 2; did it only have the metal angled connectors or are they the older wooden straight down connectors that were rev. 2? What was the main difference between the LCD2 and LCD3 pads; apparently the new LCD2's are shipping with LCD3ish pads now?
thats what I read somewhere. I'm in the market for a used one and that why I ask because some ads state rev. 2 but have straight down wooden connectors.
I purchased a pair of LCD-2 rev 2s right after they made the switch from rev 1. They do have the straight wooden connectors, so it's possible you will see used ones that are similar.
