Absolutely right.  I pick my music for the MUSIC, not the recording.

I listen to nothing but beautifully recorded animal farts.

I listen to 30Hz square waves.

30Hz? Wow. Elephants in rhythmdevils' collection, then.

I just woke up after yesterday's madness in Tokyo. I'm  not going to attempt to post any kind of serious evaluation of the LCD-3s since we were in meet conditions. I will only say that after listening to them on a variety of gear that they sound more "right" to me than the LCD-2s. I didn't feel at all like any instruments were too forward or too recessed as I have at times with the LCD-2 revisions (though I am used to the basic "house sound" now).  One highlight was trying them on the Yoshino EAR-4 with vinyl as a source while talking to Mrs Yoshino -- Tim Paravicini's wife. With the ALO CLAS/RX balanced rig sounded totally like a high-end desktop rig as well and not a portable one.  The irony was, directly opposite the ALO table was the Stax table.

 
Anyway, I'll post more in the meet impressions thread.

Thanks for recognizing the CLAS/Rx (or the SR71b) balanced rig.  Many headfiers that shy away from or write off any portable setup as serious business really don't know how good that combo really is as I have enjoyed for the past year.  I know Jude agrees with the above statement.

Exactly. My office rig of CLAS->DB2->SR71B fully balanced combo is nothing short of amazing when driving the LCD2. Ok, it is no Esoteric K-01 or the Leben which I use at home, but IME it has beaten many of the cheaper desktop gear which I have auditioned, including the Burson or Darkvoice. I haven't heard the other cheap amps like **** Lyr or EddyCurrent, but I suspect the fully balanced portable combo will be head and shoulders above them as well. Now if the LCD3 scales better with DACs, I may consider getting an Antelope Zodiac Gold DAC for it, but probably still use it with the SR71B.

Which DAC chip do you use in the DB2?  Sounds like a pretty serious setup iphone>clas>db2>sr71b blink.gif (photos pls lol)

The weird thing was that I wasn't impressed by Jude's SR71B/CLAS combo, but I might have had the gain set wrong and I don't know how much charge was in the batteries of any of it. It wasnt noisy at the festival actually, at least not enough to get at least a basic idea about most gear, if not fine detail.
