I believe, I have to pay a lot of tax when I order it in USA, but maybe it's wrong.

To order it in the forum sounds good. How can I do it? I'm newbee here.

The tax never exceed the price you would have paid in a shop in Germany
It's a question of luck
You pay at least 30 % less new from Usa or else where and the tax is 25 %

The best way to avoid customs in France is not to choose express mail like Ups Dhl and others

I found a online store here: http://www.headphone.com/headphone-amps/amplifiers/alo-audio-pan-am.php

I must sleep a night about it but I think I'll purchase it tomorrow, I know me a little bit longer. ;)

 

And ..
I find many positive reviews about the ALO Audio Pan Am, also I can operate it with battery pack and last but not least it looks like steampunk design and I like that because it somehow fits the design of the LCD-2.

From the spec sheet again:

  • Maximum power handling: 15 W (for 200 ms)

 

The power output of the taps is 100 W at 8 Ohm, so it will be much, much lower at 70 ohm, and like you said, not all of the power is going out into the headphones. You're probably well under 15 W.

Here's the new lcd-2's in rosewood. Very lush with forward mids, clean highs, and great, but not overwhelming, bass. the bass quantity is about the same with my beyerdynamic t90's. I really can't say if the fazor makes much of a difference as I had an opportunity to test drive the rev. 2's once before at a dealer in Los Angeles, so I don't have much of a reference point. That being said, the highs have great extension without being bright.The Wa7 has the original tubes, been waiting over a month for the upgraded Electro Harmonix. They're backlogged at the factory. I typically have the Wa7 at around 12 o'clock for most tracks, with plenty of headroom to spare.

Here is the freq response graph provided by Audeze in PDF.  They no longer ship the headphones with paper graphs, but are very responsive by email.

notice the small -5 db shelf at 40 hz.

For better or for worse, this seems to be the new norm with the Fazor equiped LCD-2. My pair has the same drop. Compromises...

I'm not sweating it. -5 db from 20-40 hz isn't bad, just not "ruler flat" all the way down.  These are definitely more neutral than "bass monster", as they have a reputation of being.  They sound great, I have to say.

post #6373 of 7128

Agreed. They are certainly a "reference" sounding headphone, not a bass heavy can. The bass is indeed very satisfying (much more so than my HD600 for example), but to my ear it sounds accurate rather than bloated or skewed.

@Audio Reiner, Meier audio is another good (SS) option in Germany. Jan Meier is well known on head fi and provides amps from portable to desktop.

I am very fond of my Meier Classic desktop amp, perfect for clean neutral sound. That said, I slightly prefer my decware tube amp with LCD 2 and 3.
post #6375 of 7128
Meier and violectric (v200) then
