You can include me in that group of marginal due to gear.  Now if you don't like deep bass there really isn't any upper level gear that will make it sound like a British monitor though.

ZDSE is another I would love to hear being an OTL that really isn't given it's low output impedance but it drives me nuts that unlike the other EC amps it has no toggle from headphone to line.

Cute enough?

 

In the end that's the only people who's opinion is worth anything.  Those who can spend their money, not fall victim to shiny toy syndrome, and dump the lesser gear regardless of sticker value.  If you love everything, you're not really adding anything to the conversation ;)

Hence my one-man-amp-recycling venture I've been on as of late. :wink_face: Don't get me wrong-I'm not one to splurge for the sake of it-I'm just trying to find a rig that bests my favorite so far. So far-I've been failing miserably lol.

 

 P1u is next on the list-I think it arrived at my house today in fact. I'm really curious about it's sound, as comments around here make it sound like it's pretty close to a ZDSE or EC ZDT (HPA).  Time will tell.

Daniel, why haven't you just bit on the GS-X already? Might as well find out while

Levi lies in wait. And considering just how many are fans of it with either LCD or HD800.

post #1491 of 4451

I will. ;)

 

Just got the Luxman (sexy beast, that) in today-gimme a minute already. ;)

 

What is the current wait time on the GSX right now? If I pay the first deposit this coming week, will I be in on the current/next batch? Also-how do the remaining 3 deposits work? I wish he had more info about that on his site-thought truth be told I haven't emailed him about it either.

 

Also-I'd want a unique faceplate-Justin still does that, right?

Hurry up!

 

It was 3 months-ish. If you pay now (if there are any left)..current run/only run is 60 IIRC maybe Dec. Or July, you know how Justin does things.

 

I believe you put down a deposit then pay the remaining balance when it's ready. Not completely

sure I canceled my order well before I was emailed about color options, etc.

 

Justin did buy a laser engraving machine for customizations, maybe.

Sweet. I'll probably put down a deposit next week, and find out about custom options at that time. I wonder he'd be opposed to etching "BP Levi stand" on the faceplate? Kidding.

 

As far as the despoits go-I just figured you paid four of them since he divided them into uh, 1/4s on his site. Anyway thanks for the info-this all kind of hinges on how this P1u treats me, since I'm really just looking at an ss option as a secondary rig. Interested in the GSX for various reasons though-and being balanced is one of them.

Always gotta stir trouble. GS-X vs Levi. Either you or Tari need to get on that.

 

First things first, run through the P1u.

you pay 1/4 now, then 2 weeks before shipping justin will contact you with a bill for the remaining 3/4. that's what justin told me at least.

post #1496 of 4451

Custom colours for the face are $250 if memory serves.

post #1497 of 4451

If it helps take the sting off previous runs were 100% up front.

they were also at the original gs-x's price point IIRC. i personally would've preferred upfront but cheaper price...

post #1499 of 4451

True but some can't afford to be without the $2000 and nothing to show for half a year ;)

The caveat is if you aren't willing or able to spend on the amp or source, don't bother.  The LCD-2 scales as well but tends to sound just fine out of budget gear that the LCD-3 would sound like a terrible waste of money on.

In my opinion a Burson Soloist level amp, W4S DAC-2 level source is a bare minimum to get value out of the LCD-3.  The same is true of the HD800 but the problem is no system can make me prefer the HD800 over the LCD-3.
For someone who has bought and sold both HD800 and LCD-3 numerous times which he has explained was due to the new amps/DACs that he has changed. What make you so sure that NO system can make you prefer the HD800 once AGAIN over the LCD-3? I have previously quoted you saying that you preferred the HD800 over the LCDs by a LANDSLIDE and based on the what I read from others' comments, that pretty much sums up the impression you gave me and the others that you really enjoyed the HD800 very much during that period, rather than just a pair "listenable" of headphones. And I certainly do not agree at all that saying something you can live with is considered an compliment! (Get off the high chair, man!) Try telling that to your wife "You are someone I can live with, and that is a actually a compliment", and see how she will react to that, or imagine someone tell you that, how would you feel? I will be very surprise if you still think that that statement is a compliment.
