Is that silly? I'd prefer to keep them "on display".

 

I think as long as your temperature/humidity is under control and they're not exposed to direct sunlight - you should be good keeping them "on display".

You can also apply that "wood conditioner" once in a while.

^ Exactly. I kept my LCDs on the same Room stand and sometimes even under sunlight. I treated the wood every 4 months and it looked practically new throughout the year I had it.

What about the skin?  Are you using the leather care kit? How often?

 

Thank you!

I used some of my leather kit cream that came with my leather couch. It worked surprisingly well with it. The vacuum effect went away and the pads never got sweaty afterwards. Regardless, I think it's a good idea to use some type of authentic leather cream every 3 months or so. Goes a long way for keeping the pads comfy. Worked wonders for my LCD-2 and LCD-3.

I got the Vegan, so I guess no need to care about it much.

I would be more worried about dust collecting on them than the condition of the wood.  I keep mine covered with a cloth when not in use.

It looks like it may have been crimped in the case at some point.

 

Are there any aftermarket cables that improves things without sacrifices or changing the sound signature?

same thing happened to my stock cable...right channel would cut in and out when I moved the cable in a particular way. I was gonna see if audeze would help fix it for me....then I decided to just get an aftermarket cable and be done with it. Less about trying to improve the sound, because I've been disapointed before when trying a cable (IC's, speaker cables) and not hearing any change. And I had no issues, sonics wise, with the stock cable.

 

The Q Cable was what I went for and the cable is really nice. If I ever have a problem with the cable Steve (the head honcho with Q cable) will take care of it, no prob. Though I don't foresee any issues, it's a well built cable. Steve's a riot, and a lot of fun to communicate with :)

 

Have I A/B ed the stock/Q cable? No, not yet because I'm enjoying my music with the Q too much to even worry my self with that right now....I will at some point and will post my thoughts when I do :)

 

 

Same thing happened to me. My left channel mini XLR started cutting out last week when I move it. Now i'm shopping for a new cable. It's a shame all non-audeze cables are so expensive... any recommendations for the budget minded?

DIY, blue jeans cables, used... A fellow member might make you one. I just made one today, and if it had gone better, I'd offer you one, haha!

Just received my LCD-2s and currently using it with my Aune T1 that I used my HE-400s with. Currently running it on low gain with Genalex Gold Lion. It sounds great, but I'm wondering if I would benefit from upgrading to an Asgard 2 with Modi?

I think it would benefit. Audeze sounds best from powerful SS amps with low output impedance.

also, try a 20 dollar tung sol tube. Vastly better than the gold lion, which I also used for a time.

I tried mine with an OTL and really enjoyed it. Anyone have a similar experience?
post #6570 of 6599

Yup...prior to the LCD2s I never heard the output transformers in my tube amps.
