Still drunk but that won't stop me. Okay, I am too lazy to give a review but I will throw in impressions. As I stated before, I bought a lot of equipment over the last year and am just now getting the chance to play with it. For tonight my setup: XBox360 via optical cable->Eastern Electric Minimax Plus->EF-6. Tonight I listened to complete albums via CD from Five Finger Death Punch, The Birthday Massacre, and Anberlin. I primarily listened via a pair of HE-6 headphones with about 40 hours of break in. Through every stage, from sobriety going to hammered, I periodically plugged in the LCD-2(broken in), and replayed the last song that had played. Even when I was completely sober, I would immediately plug the HE-6 back in, and keep in mind that my initial impressions of the HE-6 were a bit light in the base. I also experimented with using the Minimax's tube output stage. The tube seems to add a bit to the acoustic region just on the upper end of the base, which I care for sober, but drunk it bothers me and makes me feel like I am missing something....but it was a metal night so there is that. I will throw out the generic...I am hearing things I never heard before with this setup...it is true, but still. The things I notice the most: vocal range is greater than anything I have heard before, sometimes with certain recordings(The Birthday Massacre) guitars sound...dirty...but here I can tell they are electric guitars, and of course the full range of percussion is finally evident. Not taking anything away from the LCD-2, but the HE-6 is definitely staying. I might also note that the EF-6 is excellent for the LCD-2 but with only 24 steps some might find a setting where one is too soft and the next is too loud...I found my ears adjusted the more I drank. I also listened to my ipod touch->rsa shadow->JVC FX700 setup while making dinner, before I started drinking, and I must say that it is excellent for what it is, the best portable setup I own by far...and still I can definitely tell I am going portable when compared to the HE-6/EF-6/minimax. I am disappointed, I hoped that I would prefer the LCD2/LYR combo and get a lot of money back by selling the HE6/EF6, but it doesn't look like that is going to happen...but must do more tests, semi-sober and drunk before I make a decision.
