I have just started listening to my pair of LCD 3 re-cabled with a solid core silver/gold cable. System is a HEX Dac to the Cavalli LAu.
Grooving to Fourplay at the moment......
Brief thoughts are that the LCD 3 is a very mellow, euphonic and sweet sounding pair of headphones. Good sense of spacial cues within a very nicely sized soundstage, which is well differentiated in the x, y, and z axis. There is still the slight mid/upper bass bump which for me is very pleasant and drives the music along very nicely, not as pronounced as it's sibling the LCD 2. I am of the opinion that the sonic presentation is very reminiscent of how a well set up Linn Sondek LP12 sounds through a good system, as I did with the LCD 2, but the LCD 3 has a better arm and cartridge.
I will try and post more detailed impressions at a later stage, and perhaps make comparisons with the Abyss and HD800.
