Mercifully, I only have to put on one of these things a year. They are a lot of work.

It is better than Cedar Rapids. That's about it. Des Moines actually has a lot of excellent restaurants.

If you are a technology sales person, you bet we are hiring. I've hired 40 people in the last year on my team, and the company has hired about 80.

Since it's only about 2-3 hours to drive over I've been thinking about it. I've never been to a big show, or any show really.

post #1794 of 10409

My first big show was the RMAF in 2011 and it was amazing.  2.5 days of looking at and listening to audio equipment.  It really doesn't get much better than that.

post #1795 of 10409

Yep, we sure had a blast at that one!!!!! It really is a fun thing to do.

LCD-2s have landed.  I am............. extremely confused by what I'm hearing from them.  This is the exact polar opposite of every single thing I have read about them.

 

These things are insanely bright, way more lit up all the way through the treble range compared to my (infamously bright) K701s.  Lush is the absolute last word I would use to describe this.  The sibilance is unbearable.

 

Since I can't compare them to the K701s directly anymore I just have to go by what I'm hearing right now, but this is disappointing.  I should have replaced my K701s with another pair of the same I'm thinking.

 

A hundred people on the forum complain that these are too dark,and I'm hearing this.  Especially considering which headphone I came from.  Am I crazy here?

Try switching to RCA 6AS7s you should have a tube combination to tame this.

I have listened to the LCD-2/3s with a number of amps.  The last thing I would ever call them is bright.  I have never thought they were bright.  Maybe they can be a little dark at times, but never bright.

post #1799 of 10409

I know, I'm just blown away that they are more lit up than what I was used to.  I could ask a hundred people here and get 100 answers saying that's impossible.

 

The bass is nothing short of incredible though.  Again, not what I was expecting as I find there is no more bass presence than my (supposedly bass light) K701s had, but the weight and drive is certainly better.

 

I'm not going to set my mind in stone based on first hour impressions, but I can't help but be shocked at how different they were from my expectations.  I will give them some time, but I think I'm going to work on scraping some money together to buy some K702s as I can already tell I'm going to miss them.  Maybe it is just because I listened to them for so long, but I never realized how well aligned they were to my tastes after all.  Maybe the old K701s were getting tired, but clarity wise they were never better right up to the day they were slain.  Well, once I got this amp anyway.  I couldn't imagine what these would sound like on solid state, they are borderline dry sounding as it is.

Right, this is why I'm so surprised.  I've got them on my head right now, and this significantly brighter sounding to me than my old K701s.  Maybe I got a weird pair?
