Oh, well I guess I've just had bad luck then. Thanks for replying.

I'm as addicted to these HP's as I was when I 1st purchased the HD800.

That's because the T1 is a jack of all trade and master of none :)

Sorry if this has been mentioned already but new rugged travel case

 

 

 

 

 


The opening flaps are on the side rather than front.

Great pics jibzilla. I like the new case a lot, especially the pull out tray design...

Me too. You guys want some tube amp impressions?

post #3546 of 3553

I got the new style travel case with my LCD-3 manufactured Nov 2014 so they have been shipping them that way for a few months now at least.

 

I didn't realize there was an old case!

Yes please. Tube impressions.




These are the tubes I'm using right now. Super lush. Probably a little bright in treble. I like a little roll off. However the NU driver tubes are very young.

Well the impressions are more with the X's than the 3f's but I'm going back and forth between the 2 and I don't hear a big dif., at least not as much as 3c vs.X. Not the biggest comparison but out of the WA6 SE, Liquid Fire and Peak/Volcano I def. preferred the Peak/Volcano. I also tried 2 different dac's the tranquility SE and Auralic ark mx+ and the results were the same.

 

To me the peak/volcano just sounded more synergetic, slightly bright, and despite it being only one tube had way more tube qualities 3d, natural tone, micro detail than the other 2 competitors. The Liquid Fire and WA6 SE were bought used unlike the peak/volcano but I didn't see anything wrong with the amps and both amps came with expensive set(s) of aftermarket tubes. The tube change did not help though and really didn't do much to change the sound. I got the peak/volcano with both the stock tungsol and a free princess from todd and thought the amp was good but not great. Switched to a 6 pack of vintage that I got from Brent and wow. The Peak/Volcano despite being 1 vs. a set in the other 2 amps really changes in sound way more dramatically. I then pulled the trigger on a b65 since the euro and gbp tanked and yowza it was really great sounding. I would say the 5692 is my fav. bang for the buck and b65 my fav.

 

I also tried my X's on someone else's dna stratus/ metrum hex and we both agreed that his hd800's were the way better match. Could have been the hex, could have been the X's instead of the 3f but I think the stratus is too warm for audeze's. Don't get me wrong, the X sounded good but as far as tube amps go I think for less money and less tubes to worry about you will get similar if not better results out of the Peak/Volcano.

 

I was curious about the Zana but enjoy Mike at Headfonia and he picked the Peak/Volcano over it with 2's and I like his reviews. I haven't read that article in a while but I think he had the Zana for like a couple of years so I don't think he came to that decision lightly. One of these days I will get around to trying it. I would also like to try out a Taboo at some point.

Ahoy Lads!

 

Just made my first Audeze voyage with an LCD-3 purchase last week.  I'll be posting my impressions soon (WA7 + WA7tp + Mullard 12AU7 CV4003 + EH Golds) but wanted to ask if Audeze still includes the wood care kit and frequency graphs with their LCD-3s?  Mine did not come with either.  I've sent an email to Audeze asking this question but thought I might get a quicker response here (especially considering what they're going through right now). Thanks in advance...

EDIT:  Just got my answer from the LCD-2 Impressions thread whereby another Head-Fi'er noticed the same thing.  Looks like they no longer include them nor sell them on their website.  Awesome set of cans btw...

Wood-care kits are no longer sent out as they changed their approach on how best to care for them. Regarding FR graphs they will email you a soft-copy if you request it - just send them your SN. And it might take a bit longer than normal to get a response from Audeze due to all the stuff related to the burglary. Cheers and enjoy!

Holy Moses! That was a quick reply scott!  Thank you.  I was in the process of editing my post, and once I had finished, realized you had already replied.  Thanks again for the info :)

They told me that the wood they use now has a better finish so doesn't need as much as before. They also said that any good wood polish is fine.
