Thanks, grokit, but I can't imagine my upstream gear could account for the HP's out-of-the-box behavior -- unless there's some incompatibility I don't know of. The RSA Raptor, according to a conversation with Ray, is a great match for the LCD-3... and my VAC Signature 2A preamp fed by one of the best analogue front ends I've heard should not be a problem either.
I've had the LCD-3 burning in with an Internet Radio station all night and I'll have a chance to check it again tonight. I'll post results again.
Can anyone who had the "Veiled" 3's tell me if my description of the sound versus the 2.2 is what you experienced?
