Haha ive been doing alot of pondering the last couple days prepoman. I really really like the stax, but i really cant justify the cost. I also enjoy the HE-6s, but not only have i not had the chance to compare it to the LCD-3, but i realized that i really dont have the space for an amp for the HE-6s either, i want something that will fit on my desk, and none of the amps i was looking at for the HE-6s will fit. I also want to be able to take them with me places, and its just not feasable to do so with the HE-6s. So its not that i dont like them, just that the LCD-3s are probably the best cans i can get that will fit what i want. And since i loved the LCD-2, im pretty sure i will enjoy the LCD-3s as well.
And i guess i cant say that i havent heard the lcd-3, but the one pair i have heard were veiled :(
Im also mostly just realizing that i want to have money for other hobbies as well :P thats whats stopping me from geting the stax for the most part.
I do understand. But as Solude said the LCD-2.2 may just be more enjoyable, especially for the music you like. That bass will serve you well. They say the MJ and the LCD-2.2 are a really great match.
Anyway if you want the listen to the LCD-2.2s you and HC can come on over. I got the GS-X coming but who knows when it will get here.
