Liquid Gold. :)

Speaking of the Liquid Gold, did you see Cavalli has them on sale for 3950? Still a HUGE chunk of change, but it's something like 30% off (maybe more, I don't remember what the msrp is)

Ya I saw, I don't think I will ever get Liquid Gold, but deciding between Zana Deux SE or Liquid Glass.
Probably ZDSE because IMO HD800 is way superior than Audezes. Just IMHO nothing more. smily_headphones1.gif

Clarification: I used to own the older HD800 (serial 1xxxx) and now new HD800 (26xxx, I think), two sounds different.
And the new HD800 sounds better IMO. (I used to hate the HD800 sound signature, but now love it).

Which- of all the Audeze headphones ever made has the most seductive midrange?

I have not heard the X. With that in mind, I vote for the 3.

The LCD-3 is the most mid-centric Audeze, but that comes at the expense of treble presence and soundstage.  No question, though--the LCD-3 has the lushest mids.

In my experience, I have to agree with those here, the LCD-3 has the most euphoric midrange (it's very warm). The best balance overall would probably be the LCD-X, or an FR corrected LCD-2/3.

 Rev.1's. The latest LCD3 come close but not there yet, although it makes it up with its subtle improvements here and there.

A very worthwhile trade off and without the need to mess with tubes.

I thought this was an interesting quote from Tyll yesterday,

"The current production LCD-2 sounds different to me than previous versions--no comment review coming. 

I think the LCD-3 may be the most pleasurable $1000+ headphone...but it's because I can't afford the Stax 009 and HeadAmp Blue Hawaii."

At that point it's just personal preference, though. I've listened to the SR-009 and the Blue Hawaii. It's an absolutely amazing system and a testament to true ultra hi-fi, but if I had a choice I'd buy an LCD-X because it fits my preferences more than the SR-009/BH.

post #6118 of 6615

You're correct, he is commenting on personal preference with regards to the LCD-3 and SR009.  I'm more interested in his impressions of the current production LCD-2 and why it warrants a whole new review.

post #6119 of 6615

Oh, I misread that first line, I thought he wasn't reviewing it and had no comment. I'll be really interested in what he has to say about it, I thought his LCD-2 review was fairly recent.

 

Where did that quote come from, Innerfidelity or one of his forum posts?

 

EDIT: Just found it. It seems he's got review samples of the LCD-X, LCD-3, and LCD-2 right now (different comment on the same article).

His original review was posted August of 2012.  I'm not sure which revision he had for that review.  I see angled connectors so must be LCD-2.2?  I guess the newer ones are LCD-2.3 but there are no visible differences?

 

It's on innerfidelity in the comments of his new AKG K812 review.
