I'm surprised my post has been taken the way it has. I was trying to say that I'm enjoying my LCD-3 a lot, and that's just by running them straight out of a MacBook just now. As I've never had a high-end headphone or an amp/dac, I can't even imagine how much better I can expect, because I've never experienced it before.
Of course I'm going to be amping them. In fact I started a thread a couple of months ago, asking for amp and dac advice, and currently making a shortlist. A couple of members are also messaging me directly with advice and their experience in similar situation to mine.
It's just my wallet is a bit sore from recent purchases (which includes the MacBook Pro and the LCD-3) so I won't be able to get anything until after christmas now. So don't worry, I won't let them suffer for long. They'll get all the power they need very soon. :-)
Apologies for any misunderstanding.
