Thanks for your help Defiant and Jodgey!

I will try a few different sources, though I am limited.

Compared to the DT990 pro 250s, these are nowhere near as sharp and piercing. Hell, it also could be the amp?

It doesn't seem to bad on the JDS C5 but then again i don't think they're driving them properly haha.

Plan to pick up a Emotiva mini-x will try that on Fri!

I will do some more testing and reading!

Thanks for the help again mates smily_headphones1.gif

It's a double edge sword. I had Emotiva mini-x and used it with many planars including the LCD-2. The Emotiva mini-x itself is on the bright side  by a bit. However, you'll have a lot of power so your headphones are going to be driven well. The benefit of a well driven phone is that your FR is going to be more flat with more bass and less treble than say from an iPod, O2 or anything that can't drive it well. It's a healthy relationship between LCD-2 and Mini-x. I think you'll like it.

Thanks Zoom!

 

I'm looking forward to it, a flatter response would be interesting, the extra bass may mask a bit of that treble!


Though I don't know if it works that way hahaha

 

Cheers mate!

In essence that's exactly what you'll hear, although that's not what's happening behind the scenes with regards to amp designs.

Yup, looks like more research and reading needed on my part :)

Quick question, mini-x arrived. However when using it I hear a sharp click, feedback noise when occasionally. Mainly when changing sources through the PS4.

E.g. Changing from pcm to dts, etc.

Any thoughts on what it could be and if it could be damaging the headphones? Tyty
post #6712 of 6719
Hard to know if it's damaging, like a short busy of DC, but my guess is that it's a muting relay switching on and off between sources to prevent DC bursts from making it through to your cans. Audio-gd products always get called it for it, lol, when is a good thing.

Ahh sweet no worries haha.

Currently watching a movie and it occurs sporadically when changing scenes hard to pinpoint as when I rewind and watch the same bit it doesn't happen lol.

I'll ignore it unless it occurs more frequently.

Thank you Jodgey!

I'd like to ask about the soundstage of LCD-2 rev.2.
I love the sound of the headphone, but I hate its small/closed-in/in-the-head soundstage. This is why I am considering either replacing my LCD-2 with another headphone or upgrading/changing my DAC/amp.

Can my Schiit Bifrost/Schiit Lyr be the factors that limit soundstage of my LCD?

Will changing my DAC (Bifrost) or/and amp (Lyr) considerably improve my LCD-2's soundstage or will I be better of looking for another headphone
Maybe Hifiman HE-560? (I love the soundstage and airness of my HE-400!)

560 could do it... but upgrading to a Fazor model is probably your best bet. Gear can only do so much.

I have the Lyr/Bitfrost and the Icon HP8 to pair with my LCD2.2f. I find the Lyr to be somewhat two dimensional with little depth and seems to be in your face with the LCD2's. With the HP8 there is more depth to the soundstage and and voices have more texture as well. The HP8 is more effortless and flows better even though it has less power. IMO.

Have you compared it with other amps? What were they?
