Sorry, I have no idea..
No prob TY. The only problem I'm having with the LCD3s is I am not getting enough time with them!
Never owned them simultanously, just heard them briefly together, and further - I m no fan of the HD800, me finding it too treble-tilted.
The guy who sold me the WA22 sold it only for the Stax 009/727 combo, planning for a BHSE, he had tried the Stax O2/323 and found it "equal" to the HD800/WA22. So I believe the HD800 is no slouch with the WA22 if you like the HD800, that is :D
Is this in reference to the HA-160 ?
I had seen the ALO cables at the local stores but did not know they made amps too, silly of me :)
That looks quite nice and small too!
What tubes did you end up using ?
I remember having a conversation with someone about the HA160 with an LCD-X and whether the sound upon cranking up the volume as in fact resonance or ringing (per CSD graph). And I was like noooo, the way you described it sounds like massive distortion / clipping. I found it hard to believe given the specs, but thanks for confirming.
Even if one didn't crank it up, the HA-160 is much too sleepy and polite for the LCD-3.
I have the Burson HA160 and the DA160 with the LCD3s and I listen to the LCD3s more with the CL -dB/RX3B out of my Mac Book Air than my Burson setup.
I did manage to find a RX3B to try, my source was not the best so I don't think its wise to comment, nor did I have much time with it.
I am still thinking the Pan Am is the goods. I can get it locally as well or order it if I want :)
Do any of you guys use the Passport or Gateway to power it ?
There are so so dam many Tube stores in HK... Maybe a I need to read up more on what tubes I can use.
