Coming tomorrow are Whiplash hybrid V3 balanced cables. I am traveling and may not get to listen with them till next week. :(

And if the cables are not enough, I will be returning with a Mullard CV2492.

 

Wow......better equipment = better sound P E R I O D  

 

LOL Like you all did not know that.

Once again I must give you my utmost envy! deadhorse.gif

I wonder what's going on blink.gif  I loved the bass coming out of the LCD3s, SE stock cable and using a Audio~gd 11.32 and I think its way less now.

 

I've now had the Bellina with the Mullard and a Whiplash Twag v3 and Twcu v3 hybrid cable for a couple of weeks with @110 burn-in on both. I'm not sure how much better this 12 X more in $$ cost set up sounds, if at all? I think the bass quantity is diminished and I cannot say tighter, in fact I don't like the bass missing. Am I mistaken? I mean I know we all hear things differently but still why would it be gone? Cable?

 

Tomorrow I'm going to A/B like this: 

 

Bellina from computer via usb.

11.32 from Pure 20 via toslink.

LCD Whiplash balanced for Bellina and SE adaptor for the 11.32.

I will have the same exact song playing on both at the same time and quickly change between the two.  I will be able to just add se adaptor going from Bellina to 11.32.

I just bought myself a pair of these to go along with my Burson Conductor. Fabulous combination, I must say. Absolutely blows my old HD650/BCL/sound card combination out of the water in every conceivable way.

 

I will add however, that proper positioning for these headphones seems to be *extremely* important; as it is with any headphone obviously, but to the point where I'm spending literally minutes finely adjusting them on my head until they sound just right. My 650's on the other hand, had that "sweet spot" I could find instantly. My first impressions of the LCD's were actually rather terrible because I had yet to spend the required hour (or more) finding that perfect spot over my ears.

 

They're absolutely beautiful sounding headphones, but ONLY when placed precisely so. Any micro adjustments affect the sound pretty dramatically. 

 

I'm being picky though. That small gripe aside, I'm absolutely thrilled with these - both cosmetically and sonically. I'll be keeping the LCD-3's and Burson for the distant foreseeable future. Truly an amazing combination.

what do you find is the perfect positioning? i think i've narrowed it down to slightly forward on the ears, but tilted back on your head - resting on the cowlick area.

Welcome to the LCD3 family. They are truly awesome!
