That is true, one of the reasons why I buy a lot of things off ebay, the only downside is the online market is plagued with a lot fakes.

Wondering would anyone have the DT880 and willing to trade with maybe any of the gears I have listed - for a week or two. Recently got a chance to audition the K701 in detail, and now I would love to complete my own impressions of the old trio.

 

Or the HD650 for any of my cans bigsmile_face.gif

 

Send me a pm if interested.

maybe......, i want to see how they both sound with a schiit lyr and then make a decision on if i should keep both or not.

 

i like everything from pink floyd/dire straights to pete tong and harder style house so i think both these cans will cover my tastes in music , at least thats the impression i got after a day of reading forums and reviews.

 

currently i have an nfb2 dac so i am on the look out for a lyr second hand but i am not in a rush.....my plan is to stream from the SBT to the NFB2 then to a Schiit lyr, that should work OK i think but feel free to correct me if this is a bad combo.

 

thanks.

Hey guys! Just wanted to say a hello since I'm in Sydney.

 

Following on from the topic, the markup seems to be better for brands that aren't as well established in Australia. The price from Addicted to Audio for V-Moda M80's isn't too bad; nor is the lightsounds price for AiAiAi TMA-1's. You have to do a bit of hunting around though, and sometimes you can wrangle for a better price. I've been able to do that for multiple occasions at the Audio Technica store in Westfield Sydney.

 

Speaking of which, I'm putting up a pair of ATH-AD900's up for sale; they still have 5 months warranty so its a neat deal for any fellow Australian head-fi members. Here's the link. :)

Just a bump for aussies here, anyone here that is selling there LCD Rev.2 please let me know, also you call tell me about the bass response on them as well, in dire need of one.

post #383 of 857

True the price is quite reasonable if you take the price of us retailer and adding shipping plus I can claim tax tongue.gif

On boxing day, I went down Westfield ath store... Got a pair of ew9 clip ons for 100
post #385 of 857
Oh also I think my local hifi shop is selling Yamaha eph100 for 99
post #386 of 857

I just bought a pair of LCD Rev.1's for almost 700 from another headfier, lets hope for all the best :)

post #387 of 857

I have a Rev.2 and the bass is amazing. Needs a good amp though to bring out the best of them.

post #388 of 857

Yeah  I was really contemplating on whether to pay an extra 100 for the Rev.2 over the Rev.1's, but from what I've heard from the review's section for the LCD2, one of the user did a comparison between the two, although Rev.2 just has a slightly improved treble and tighter bass, Rev.1 has more body to its bass and are slightly darker. Mind you I prefer dark, bassy and slightly warm signature headphones over bright end ones anyday. I've got a 2 vintage speaker amp's restored by me to there original working condition and that will surely from what I think will drive these very nicely, a JVC and a Marantz amplifier. I might end up selling the Marantz one though but keep the vintage JVC. Might do some a/b test's soon between the vintage amp's and my naked Jonokuchi tube amp. Hell, just for shiggle's I will do some impressions with the LCD2's and a Fiio E11 portable amp or maybe a moy??rolleyes.gif

The LCD2 is a wonderful headphone in the sense you can basically run it off anything and it would sound decent. I enjoyed my time with them running off a Cowon J3 to a Stepdance :)

Yeah. I wish the HE-6 were easy to drive. Probably the most power hungry can's ever made.
