It was just a solicitation for impressions on synergy or lack thereof. What do you have to say on the matter? Please share your thoughts.

Gotcha. Quite happy. The forward or aggressive nature of Mojo works very well with the LCD-3's.

They definitely have synergy. I think the only amp I liked more with the LCD-3 was the ECBA.

But I can't be too sure because I didn't spend enough time with it.

 

Overall though, it's a value that's tough to beat.

I read somewhere that you were initially unimpressed with the LCD-3. Was this with the Mjolnir?

No, it was not. In fact, getting Mjolnir amplified how much I really like the LCD-3.

I use all Q cables. Besides my interconnects.

I've tried furman pf 1800 and it didn't filter the noise. The tripplite transformer did the trick. The transformer has a distinct paint smell to it when you first open it, but it goes away after a few weeks.

 

Does your Tripp Lite make any humming noise?

That was me. I think my HE-6 sound better off them. The BHA-1 is a better match with the LCD-3, but I had to keep the mjolnir for the versatility of my three headphones. It's by no means at all bad, but I think the bass is a bit overwhelming on several genres with this combo.

The white medical grade tripplite does make a hum, which is only noticeable when I put my ear to it.

No I got this one

I only got the medical grade one because there were certain reviews that indicated it was quieter than the non-medical grade ones. I can't really confirm that since I don't own the non-medical one :(.

Thanks Nowis.

Hey guys, has anyone compared the Mjolnir+Gungnir vs. Audio GD NFB 6+NFB 17?

post #1919 of 3273

My mjolnir should be getting here tomorrow! Then ill get to compare it to the First Watt F1 with the Anedio D2 using both the LCD-3 and the HE-6. Im guessing that it will be better with the LCD-3, but not as good with the HE-6s, but i shall see tomorrow after work smily_headphones1.gif

Hey soup, let me know what you think about the mojo with the LCD3. I actually do not like it at all triportsad.gif, it's too bassy and incoherent in the lower registers compared to the HE-6 or HD800 imo.
