Hmm..i may get the schiit first then to get a head start.
Oh, and living in america, I'm assuming i need to get the 115v versions, right?
Finally, do i connect the two with RCA cables?
Are you talking about the Mjolnir and the Gungnir? If so "NO". Use balanced cables. Here are a few good sites:
He should be getting XLR cables..
Monoprice's are cheaper, but i'm assuming the pyst cables sound better? if not, they're kind of pointless..
I really wish more brick and mortar stores carried audeze. I'm in korea on vacation, and apparently no one carries them because people keep returning the lcd2/3 due to their comfort issues. Living in upstate new york, not a single store from JFK to where i'm from is a normal "store", but rather a company headquarter or a showroom. I don't want to spend any more money on auditioning them via demos, either.
Of my three headphones, which does the lcd-3 sound like the most? I doubt either have the same sound but....i need some kind of description
Says a lot really
I will consider that a leap of faith in choosing Master 8 with LCD-3, as I have read many feedback on amps which work for LCD-2, don't work that well with LCD-3. Anyway, nigeljames is absolutely right that master6/8 is very good with LCD-2 as I had that pairing before. The person who bought over my Master-7 and 8 combi also intends to pair them with LCD-3 too, but the headphones will only arrive in a few months' time.
I will agree it is a lead of faith that the LCD3's will work well with the Master-8.
However if I had to pick one area of concern with my LCD2.2 it is the congested bass. Not a major issue but the the inherent lack of soundstage width with the LCD2.2's means that some recordings with a lot of bass (and the Master-6/8 produces a lot of deep tight bass) can sound quite congested and lacking clarity in the bass area. This is clearly obvious if compared to the HD800's, T1's or HE6's.
As far as I have read this is an area that the LCD3's significantly improve upon, giving an even tighter bass, wider sound stage and more air & space.
So I have a feeling,and it is only a feeling, that the LCD3's could be significantly better still on the Master-6/8.
I hope to find out myself one day but the LCD2.2's still sound so good I have other priorities
