Of course I have a wedding to go to on April 20th. Terrible timing, but thanks for responding!
The week before is the New York Audio Show in Manhattan. Woo audio is scheduled to be there and I bet dollars to donuts they will have a LCD3 to demo with their new WA7 Fireflies. Hope that helps.
There is no reason to use wood from endangered forests. Bamboo (which is sustainable) is harder and mechanically more resistant (contains industrial resin). It will not crack.
LOL. Such is life!
Thanks for the Friday night laugh!
loving the LCD-3 right about now...
listening to Fat Bottomed Girls.
i mean, who doesn't like that song, right?
my only beef with the LCD-2 and 3 is that for some reason the lambskin ear pads attract tiny bits of skin and oil, and those gradually get trapped in the tiny creases of the ear pad.
i use Murphy's Oil Soap and a soft cloth, and clean them up every couple weeks...
i don't know if it's my imagination, but they seem to need cleaning more often and more often...
and, no, please don't mention the vegan pads. those things are hideous.
but, to finish on a bright note, my current rig feels like "game over" for me. for headphones audio at least.
jriver/jplay --> vaunix usb hub --> Silnote Audio silver USB cable --> Audiophilleo2 with PurePower --> WireWorld Gold Starlight 6 digital cable --> Human Audio Muto DAC --> Wireworld Gold Eclipse 6 RCA cables --> Apex Peak/Volcano (Sylvania 6SN7GTB currently) --> headphones (HD800, LCD-3, HE-500, etc.)
i list every component because i have come to feel very strongly that every single component is of at least some importance.
to achieve the kind of 3D holographic sound that is smooth, effortless yet dynamic and lifelike...
it's just like "wow'.
i described it to a friend as "driving a stolen lamborghini with Scarlett Johansen in the passenger seat, and cops on your tail."
it's a ride...
