Amp recommendations for Audeze LCD-3 - Page 45

post #661 of 1013

GS-X mk2 sounds perfect with the LCD line.  About the only others in the running for me are the Burson Soloist and Apex Peak.  Nothing in my profile really came close.  The Trafomatic was also awesome but clearly rolled in the sub bass.

Thank you again Solude.
So kind of you answering me.

I'll do more research.

Oh, just in case, I listen to Rock (Mostly Indie), Heavy Metal (it does includes Thrash, Power and Progressive), Electronic (from House and Chill Out to Dubstep and Glitch Hop) and even some K-Pop songs.

In the moment, I do not listen to classical and acoustic music, maybe one or other, but not what I listen most.

I don't know if it means something while choosing an amp. Just saying.

Thank you.
Henrique Foletto.

I also listen to mostly rock types and zero classical.

Sub-$1000 Amp/dac (don't need to be one complete device, can be dedicated amp and dac or a combination)? Dacmini (not sure whether the PX or the CX) sounds like the best bet to me so far

I think the ASUS Xonar Essence One Muses Edition is a better option

You're high :P

 

At that range it's a Schiit stack or Audio-GD.

Mjolnir + Bifrost perhaps? And do i need the USB version of the bifrost anyway? Using a computer as a source

Need no, make resale easier yes.

without the usb, how do i use it with a computer? That $1100 price is also glaring....

 

What other sub-$1000 amp/dac combos are out there for the LCD3?

At your price point your going to have to piece together something.  Also try to get a V-link (converter) or something to to get USB out the computer.

 

Or to stay under $1K I'd say with Mjolnir and Modi for now until you can upgrade.

I still here good things about the DACmini, so what about that?

Maybe for an all in one or for a DAC.  But I would guess the amp section can't touch the Mjonlir..

Have you heard it?

post #674 of 1013

I think we've all heard soundcards by this point :P  If you want to use an external soundcard at least go to the pro market, not the hype and casing route.  Not bad for $200 but at $900?  No, just no.

Darth:

 

This:

 

http://shop.emotiva.com/collections/processors/products/xda2

 

plus this:

 

http://www.tbisound.com/dsp_products_millenia.asp

 

+ a resistor box that you could build yourself for ~$50 or buy from TBI for $100 gets you a sweet-sounding system for under $1K (at least until this weekend when the Emotiva sale is over). 

 

I just did a comparison vs. MJ (check out the speaker amp thread) and while the Schiit was a detail monster, the TBI was almost as detailed and much better sounding.

 

Edit:

 

And all of that equipment has a 30-day trial period, so if you don't like it, you send it back, no restocking fee, no questions asked.
