My LCD-2.2 has good bass but it is glaring with Conductor.

Is it due to the nature of Conductor DAC (sabre glare?)?

It's the amp, not the DAC. Try a really neutral amp.

Can someone comment on this. A couple songs for reference: Fascination St by the cure and dirty boots by sonic youth. I believe the bass lines are supposed to drive these songs, but dont the way i hear them through this set up. Is this a matter of my phones dac, or just the way the lcd2 voices things.

Im just surprised because lcd3f out of my phone to a woo audio 7 seemed to have much more authoritative bass. However the principal should be the same, and graph wise, lcd2f bass goes deeper than lcd3f

The WA7 is going to add some tubeyness to whatever you're listening to, which is going to make the bass feel more warm and extended usually. The Magni is a rather bright amp and using a crappy phone DAC is just going to make that more apparent, so you're really in the worst of both worlds for bass there. If you had a better DAC and a more powerful and/or less bright amp, you'd notice the bass quite a bit more.

I actually haven't found that to be the case but yeah I mean Sabre is Sabre..

 

The different is faint. It's not huge and implementation and quality of components is much more important than a DAC chip choice. Burson makes good stuff.. could just be other stuff in the chain

my friend let me borrow his modi so i could decide whether i would keep the Audezes or not. I think the modi was a huge improvement. I think the problem was not so much the bass (although it still sounded hollow), but something about the midrange seemed glaring yet lifeless. For whatever reason, theyre much more enjoyable now, and i stayed up until nearly 530am the other night because i didnt want to stop listening to them. The midrange is incredible.

Is the sinusodial sheet not included anymore?

I received my new LCD-2s yesterday and there was no graph sheet.

Correct. Apparently people would open them all up at the dealer to find the "best" one, so you now have to email Audeze and they'll email it to you.

OK thanks.

I personally don't care about graphs 'n' curves.

As long as the Headphones sounds gorgeous (and they do).

Just in case i'm going to sell them one day, what i seriously doubt.
