Anyone got any impressions of the V200 with LCD2 or HE-500s?
And what DACs are we using to feed the v200? Personally here I am using the UD384+UPower and I am looking for a fuller featured DAC (I plan on keeping the UD384 as a transport).
I'm a total vocals/mids guy and always listen to the lyrics of songs before paying attention to anything else.
PS - I'm totally in LOVE with the V200+HD650 pairing, I didn't know what the Sennheiser 'veil' was until I listened with my V200, now my Valhalla has been relegated to bedside/transportable duty.
I am also finding this pairing, V200/HD650 to be the best that I have heard from the HD650.
My HD650 has a silver plated copper cable on it as I hated the stock cable and the signature that the HD650 had, especially the overhang on the bass.
I haven't listened to the HD650 for a while and it wasn't until reading your post that I plugged it into the V200/V800. The sound to me can't be further than what the OP has posted above, very seductive and enjoyable combination!
I will post more thorough thoughts for you re the LCD-2 and HE500 with the V200 as I have both.......but briefly the tonally correct and along with the solidity and palpable images that the LCD-2 can portray has made it more enjoyable for me over the HE500.
