Just been listening with my partner at the same time to the LCD-X and LCD-3 and swapping between us, the cool thing is that we can listen to both at the same time through the Studio Six.
I was interested to hear her comments.
With the X's she said can hear every instrument as though its highly illuminated but she finds its presentation fatiguing and she finds she herself missing the performance as a whole as she's constantly listening to the sound of one instrument or another.
She prefers the LCD-3's, said 'I could listen all day to these they have a beautifully engaging sound, I feel like I am drawn into the performance'. The LCD-X's sound little thinner and bright by comparison. I noticed her taking the 3's off and closely examining them, touching the wood.
She must have loved it because we are now planning to purchase a high end DAC and Transport and another pair of LCD-3's...........
Love those red cables!
