Just to confirm, the LCD-X have brand newly developed drivers (called Fazor) and they sound really, really good! A very good step up from the LCD-2s and give the LCD-3s a decent run for their money.

I'm a Lotus Exige kind of guy, so the LOTUS driver is good for me XD

The Fazors are not the new drivers, they are the waveguides (extra pieces added on adjacent to the drivers).

To confirm, the LCD-Xs do have new drivers as well. Thinner than the LCD-2s from my discussion with Sankar and the link you shared from the Audeze website mentions as much. It's this combination that makes the LCD-Xs special.

I'm planning on writing a review of them (LCD-X) and I'll contrast them to the LCD-3s. :o

No felt dampening? I wonder if a person can see The Fazor thru the outer grill.

Probably still has the felt damping, just not shown with the Audeze diagram for sake of simplicity.

I look forward to it. I much enjoyed your comparison of the LCD-2 & 3 and have read it several times. :smile:

Please, please don't make the X better than the 3s. I have the 3s, love them and most importantly can't afford another Audeze ;)

All I can promise is that I'll be honest. :o

Does any one feel that the LCD-3 pairs better with a certain DAC?
I already read a lot of negativity towards saber based dacs, but why?
Same question for why it pairs good too..

post #8518 of 9004

you got a master-7 right? I have a saber based dac NFB-1.32 I'm wondering how it would sound with PCM1704

post #8519 of 9004

I don't have anything yet...

 

I was considering an Audio-GD PCM1704, since I've heard that Saber DAC's sound to bright...
