dat less mid bass. and the lcd-3 is more mid forward, but lacks the energy and attack of the LCD-2. my new LCD-3 though has really nice sub-bass now, it was quite light at first, now its nice and full.

Broken record here... GS-X mk2 is a window to the source.  PWD2 doing front end tasks has great attack and prat.  The pair even make something like the ER-4P usable without eq while on my portable rig it's a lifeless brittle mess.  Which sadly likely means that when I go ciems only... I'll keep the big rig :D

Thinking about getting an upgrade cable for LCD3s. Any recommends?

 

I looked back pages a bit but couldnt find a detailed information.

It depends... What are you planning to get with this cable upgrade?
post #8555 of 9445

I want these to be better at especially soundstage. I think it would be a bit far and airy. Instrument seperation is not good enough. Treble quality can be better.

 

My amp (V200) may not be good with LCD3s but when I tried my friends HD800, it was easily better than LCD3s, especially on instrument seperation.

 

I am using stock cable at the moment.

If you don't want to loose too much bass then you might want try a Silver-Copper hybrid like Forza Audio Works Claire Hybrid. If you have bass to spare then go for the Toxic Cables Silver Widow smily_headphones1.gif

Thanks for your help!

 

I looked both of these cables manufacturer websites but couldnt find the exact names.

 

Any other ideas? How is ALO Audio?

 

I am using Norse Norn8 with my HE6. How is Norse with LCD3?

post #8558 of 9445
Just contact the manufacturers, their websites are out of date.
Didn't use ALO Audio so I don't know.
Norse is currently MIA so...

Don't try to buy a cable to get you to the HD800 sound... buy the HD800.  Or if there are things the LCD-3 does do that you can't walk away from get a different amp.

I will ask to manufacturer, thanks for your helps!

I dont like how HD800 sounds. I like its soundstage and instrument seperation. Cable is a must upgrade anyway, I am thinking about getting a cable first, then think about the amp.

did you try both xlr and rca interconnections between the v800 and v200 with the lcd3?

post #8562 of 9445

Ive been using the LCD-3 with stock cables for a few days now and its so amazing u just get drawn to the musicality . It is amped by a studio six by ALO and  a berendsen cd player as a source . Ill be having a Q cable in two weeks  to complete the set up. 

I am thinking of buying a sennheiser hd800 to compliment the lcd-3 but im enjoying the audeze sound so much i might just get the lcd- x.

I`m using Artemis cables Bow(all silver) Medusa (12x24 awg leads) UP-OCC silver with my LCD-Xs, it opens them up and cleans things up and makes everything more real and liquid :)

If you like the LCD-3 sound but want a more transparent neutral monitor-like sound with more treble, maybe you eq the treble for your LCD-3 (I used to use a high shelf +2-3dB @ 2.5kHz for my LCD-3) and you want a mix of LCD-3 and HD800, then LCD-X will not disappoint you. However you will not get the HD800 sound, just a more neutral Audeze sound. No cables or eq can do this for LCD-3 (or HD800). BTW Toxic Silver Widow is an excellent cable for LCD-X (and LCD-3) IMO.

I'm new to this thread but as a lcd 3 owner I thought I'd chip in. Like a few others I do love the sound but find the upper frequencies too rolled off to the extent that some high frequency detail was missing. The cans are only 3 months old and I asked Audeze to check the frequency graph with the serial no. to make sure all was ok which they confirmed. So I've now replaced the stock cable with Toxic Cables Silver Widow. This has definitely given the upper frequencies a boost without any harshness at the expense of a small decrease in 'body' in the bass which seems a little tighter but less full. For me it's a good trade off. I'm surprised that there is little discussion on 'best' cables for the Audeze in comparison to the variety of headamps that are debated, as I reckon both affect the sound to equal extent.
