regards,
Jimmy

Thanks Jimmy, you have a nice holiday as well! I highly recommend any of Carolyn Sampson's recordings (many on the Hyperion label; several Vivaldi; Mozart; Zelenka). To my ear she is one of the best (maybe THE best) baroque soprano out there.

Enjoy!

I like to pronounce it "Odd ease".

The correct pronunciation is something like "aw-diz-zy".

I have little experience with the LCD-3.  I was wondering if you could share with me- if I had a top of the line source, dac and and amplifier, would upgrading the cables on the LCD-3 make a noticeable difference or just very minor?

 

If it would be a worthwhile difference- what is the absolute best replacement cable?

post #2169 of 2957

Always minor in my experience.  Worth while as the last piece and within reason but not something I would ever spend more than ~$300 on again.  Same goes for interconnects and speaker cable.

I agree. On the Audezes, swapping headphone cables makes only minor difference. However, on some other headphones like the Sennheiser HD800, it can make more of a difference. 

 

The only reason I got a different cable for my LCD3 (Q Audio Silk) is so I could have a balanced to single ended adapter to listen to both without having to have two different cables, as well as a nicer weight.

Of course it makes a minor difference if you're using ETP copper cables smily_headphones1.gif

And yet the ETP showed the Silver Dragon the door :P

That's copper vs silver and it's a matter of tastes smily_headphones1.gif

its kind of tough compare cables , unless u ar in  a meet . cables cost about $300 up and to compare two u have to shell out a bunch of cash an lose some when selling the other one u didnt like , and then there are 5 other cables u need to LOL.

If it makes you feel better the Q also showed the Cardas, Blue and Black Dragon copper cables the door ;)  Truth is the Audeze stock cables were just as good sound wise as the above just too long.
