Good to know, but the LCD-2 isn´t bright enough to me, I still like them though. That´s why I decided to get the LCD-3, but they were even less brighter than my LCD-2s, even the RMAd pair, so I returned them.

Once you get used to SR-009, there's no going back to dynamics, but there are songs which will definitely sound better on the LCD. The SR-009 are brutally transparent and fast, and won't look the other way should there be shortcomings in the recorded material.
That´s what I like! But I need bass too, so the HD 800 for example was a bit of a disappointment. I just hope the SR-009 has enough bass.
