A very, very good and informative review. Pretty much mirrors my impressions of the LCD-3, though I lack the comparative electrostats experience for full context. I could never enjoy classical music on the LCD-2/3, something I readily did while I had the HD 800.
I can also relate to WA's feedback regarding stress on one's hearing by the LCD-3. While I never suffered from tinnitus, after about one hour of listening to moderate levels I can detect a faint hint of ringing in my ears, something that likewise I never experienced while using the LCD-2 or the HD 800.
I would be very curious to hear either the 007 or 009; any willful soul in South Florida? Perhaps even taking it as far as a mini meet?
