But what I have noticed is that in tuning the LCD 3 for transparency, there seems to be a dip in the organic bass that I find in the LCD 2. Any suggestions as to amps i should consider?

Thanks! atsmile.gif

What amp, if any, do you have now? If none, depending on your budget, you could consider the Schiit Mjolnir, the Burson Soloist, Headamp GS-X mk2

Thanks for the suggestions. I currently use the benchmark dac1 and the graham slee solo UL. I'll give those amps a listen. smily_headphones1.gif

Unfortunately you cannot audition the Headamp since its built to order (unless of course you have a friend in Singapore who owns one)..

I think the left driver on my LCD-3 i starting to fail. When I twist the left cup around while listening the sound drops a bit or it lose the definition of the music. 

Also when I push on the grill the sound is dropping out. But it "falls back in to place" when I stop. Nothing like this happens on the right cup. 

Should I go ahead just contact Audeze for replacing the the drivers? Bought the LCD-3s from an audio store in Norway, I guess I should contact the store regarding this though. 

Been following this thread for a long time, and failure of the drivers look like a common problem.

When did you buy your LCD-3? the serial no. starts with 231 or 261?

Indeed the serial no. starts with 261 and they were bought september of 2012. But haven't been used much until the last 6 months.

It's usually a bad idea to contact manufacturers (or especially people) directly on forums, if that's not an official guidance. Audeze has a ticketing support system for a reason.

It's perfectly fine to contact xsankar. Just note it may be better to contact Audez'e directly for a prompter response.
