As many, I am lusting after the LCD-3. It is mostly self-torture though considering that they are waay out of a reasonable price range for me at this time. A few questions:
Since this is such a phenomenal headphone, is it kind of half-assed to listen to them unbalanced?
Are these a limited run? Will they be discontinued soon (and effectively double in price used as a result)?
Where can I actually listen to these beauties myself without throwing caution to the wind and popping two grand (which happens to be almost ten percent of my savings)?
----->> I have the Denon AH-D7000, Headroom Ultra Destop Amp & HPS, Technics 1200MK2 w/ Audio Technica AT120E cartridge, and digital transfer through laptop. Would the LCD-3 be overkill for my system?
If you don't have budget try before buy would be my advice. And as already said if you're happy with what you have don't change.
