Yea, it was definitely the mastering, so much clipping! That and the dark tilt, that tends to render the sound of some bands in a way that I am not used to. I've been listening to extra bright Beyers until now.

I bought my LCD3 4 weeks ago and drive it with my Bryston BHA-1. Wow, what a combo! For me this is my end game setup for I hope a long time!

Does it have to be balanced?

Tears rolling down my cheeks while listening to the "Avalon" OST: the LCD-3 is still and more than ever appreciated over here !

Depends on the amp. If the amp is balanced then yes. If not, then no.

If one's amp is balanced, then you should run it balanced otherwise you're only using 1/2 of the power/circuitry.

My opinion with balanced vs. unbalanced is not only the difference in sound volume which is 6db. I tested it with my LCD-3 and BHA-1 switching between these two outputs. With the low and high gain setting you can adjust the volume on the BHA-1 because it is exactly 6db difference. In summary I would say that the balanced setting provide a cleaner overall sound with better air. I never want to go back.

Without a doubt Arminius, this combo offers beautiful synergy. Did you pickup the BDA-2 as well?

No, I use a V800 DAC connected balanced to BHA-1.

Guys, am new here on the forum. First time posting after spending months reading pretty much everything on Audeze gears. I have recently 'upgraded' my LCD 2.2 to LCD3, while I love both, I have to say that there are some magic in the LCD3. I never listen to music for 6+ hours straight and last time was my first time. The RWA Bellina HPA balanced out with the LCD3, I don't know if I can ask for more....  Very happy with them! I guess xmas arrive early this year.

Have fun with your LCD-3's, cause I'm surely enjoying them :)
