For all you guys using JRiver as the media player, is there any feedback on whether the "Headphones" option in the Audio Output settings to introduce crossfeed is of any benefit with the LCD-3's. From my understanding this would entail some processing of the original source signal which may potentially degrade some aspect of the SQ (bass response perhaps?), yet perhaps make them less fatiguing (or so they say, anyway).
Was just curious what everyone was doing with regards to introducing crossfeed with their LCD-3's.
I haven't noticed any difference in loss of sound quality. Clarity, transparency, etc don't seem to suffer. Also don't be afraid to use JRiver to tweak the EQ. People get way too worked up about bit-perfection in playback. Sure you don't want it going through the Windows system audio manager but JRiver is a really good audio player. Transducers are the least ideal thing in the playback chain so a little DSP to help them out is not something to fear. Just try it and use it if you like it.
