It will cost 200 usd plus shipping. And they do a complete quality check of the headphones. So I am happy with that.

Hey guys,

 

I was thinking of auditioning a set of LCD-2 from thecablecompany.com. My friend and I are both very interested in hearing them, and I am curious if I would prefer them over my He-500. The only headphone amp either of us have is the magni 2 uber, and I was wondering if that would be sufficient for an audition for the LCD-2.
 

Thanks

From my experience, yes, even through the original Magni the LCD-2s sounded quite good to me.

Should be fine:

Audeze LCD-2

Impedance 70 ohms
Efficiency 101dB / 1mW

 

Magni 2:

Maximum Power, 50 ohms: 1.0W RMS per channel

I have the Magni 2 Uber, which is 1.2W at 50Ohms, thought I'm sure 200mW isn't a make or break after 1W.

 

The HE-500's are 38 Ohms with only an 87dB/1mW efficiency, and I can power those to a suitable volume with low gain and the amp plugged into the rear audio port on my motherboard (as apposed to the front, where the signal is amped from the sound card). I'm certain I'll end up having to flip on the high gain to get a suitable volume out of the LCD-2.

 

Thanks for the feedback guys. I'll make sure to post my thoughts on it once I have it auditioned.
