My LCD-2.2 has good bass but it is glaring with Conductor.
Is it due to the nature of Conductor DAC (sabre glare?)?
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
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.
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.
