I love the sound of great music.
As a matter of fact I cant enjoy music unless it has at least decent quality.
I am just wondering if I am overbuying with LCD'3s and LF amps if my source music is LOSSLESS files downloaded with APPLES default itunes encoder?
The reason I ask is because I have not received my LF yet. Im told its going to take a few weeks.
I did get my LCD'3 a few days ago.
It sounds much better then what I had before, but not 2K good yet.
I did not expect it to sound sound 2k good yet because im using a cheap $200 amp with MACBOOK PRO sound cord with no dedicated DAC.
But im beginning to wonder if I am overbuying (5K+ so far $3200 amp $2000 headphones) if im not using CD's and vinyl.
I dont mind spending HIGH-END money for HIGH-END return if thats what I get.
But im not able/willing to inventory 800+ CD's to listen to music directly from CD's. I dont even own a record player.
I have gone thru a lot of trouble burning disk lossless onto a 5TB external hard drive and then getting rid of the CD's.
I dont own the CD's anymore.
I guess what im asking is would I be better off if I lower my equipment quality if I am not willing to listen to CD's and vinyl?
Would an LCD2 with LYR and Bitfrost suite me better?
These are questions I should have asked before buying the LF and LCD3.
