I think Woo is the only booth I missed at CanJam. Serves them right for not supporting the SHaG! :bigsmile_face: Will have to hit them next time and bring my LCD-3F's.

How disappointing, my right driver failed on my LCD-3 which I got used. Audeze wants $800 to repair it. That is half of what I paid for it. Does that seem a little high to anyone else?

How old is your pair?

Is the guarantee not transferable? Presume it's 3 years as in the UK.

So, I've listed the tube amps you recommended for ~$3000 (in no particular order):
DNA Stratus
Cavalli Liquid Glass (hybrid or fully-tubes?)
Leben CS300
Woo Audio WA5

The WA5 looks 'the works', but you're tempted to get the maxxed version with a good set of tubes and then easily reach the $5000 mark. Is it 'good enough' in stock form?

Also, stretching the budget, there's the Eddie Current BA and 2A3, also the ALO Studio Six - how do they match with the others?

Thanks!

The Cavalli LG is hybrid, I haven't heard any of the others on there so I can't really comment.

 

If you are willing to go a bit of $3k If you are willing to go out on a limb a little bit, and try something very different then check out the new offering from Vinnie Rossi. http://vinnierossi.com/

 

His previous product line was Red Wine Audio and I am currently using the now discontinued Cassabria and it is probably the finest piece of audio equipment I have ever owned. Vinnie's work with battery power supplies and now his capacitor power supply yields the blackest backgrounds I have ever experienced. If I configure the headphone amp with tube stage I get a price of $3800. Not cheap but I would bank on it being top rate.

If anyone thinks that the LCD3 (of any version or vintage, fazored or not) is a reticent phone, try an ALO cable. This cable is like a surge of high-test fuel for them, for better or worse. I have their Chainmail cable (balanced) from a few years back and have tried it on several Audeze phones (the LCD2 also) with similar results. It really pumps up the lower treble and just makes all images more vibrant and forward, if that's what you are looking for.

(Note that it's about the heaviest, thickest, sturdiest cable I have ever seen; not for the faint of heart. It looks like it could hold up a bridge.)
