Back when the lcd3 was announced audeze made the pr blunder of saying another unit was being worked on

I remember that. But its been a year and a half and here we are. A new model every few months has virtually killed Audio gd for me.

Seems to me the closed-back prototype is the main focus.

I wonder how they're going to price the LCD4 unless they totally discontinue the LCD3. I can't imagine LCD2 being discontinued and LCD3 moving down a huge price bracket, that'd piss off so many people in such a small market.

And where do they stick the closed-back LCD in all this?

Depends on how well performing they think it is I guess, or if they use the Lotus crap. Maybe they'll price it at $1195. Maybe $2195. Who knows.

Seems like a cluster-****

 

Unless they offer some kind of send in your LCD-3's and get new driver program*

people are gonna complain.

 

Just seems messy unless you price the LCD-4 in the $2400 range

 

then you could price a closed back in the $1500 range.

 

And have somewhat of a "balance"....

Nah, It'd be too awkward since LCD3 is already 2000, nobody will get the LCD3 since at that price people will just pay up $500 more for the shiny new toy. They'd be overlapping the LCD3 market. LCD2 - $995, LCD2 closed - $1195, LCD3 - $1695, LCD3 closed back - $1945, LCD4 - $2495. ??? Whatever, not expecting anything from Audez'e at this point.

 

Looking forward to getting the HD800 and hearing it on the Mjo/Gung. I'm genuinely worried that I might like HD800 better and sell the Audezes...

*rolls eyes* You mean a new flagship every few months. I gave up trying to keep track of all the different model numbers let alone sonic differences.

I have been using my Mjolnir as a preamp, and it sounds great to me.  I am skeptical that another preamp would benefit my system at all, although tube rolling and having a remote would be nice.  Nonetheless, I have been pretty tempted to invest in an audiophile tube or balanced solid state preamp though.  

 

Anyone else out there using the Mjolnir as a balanced preamp?

 

I don't have any experience w/ audiophile preamps. How does it compare to other preamps on the market?

 

Some of the preamps I have been considering are Primaluna prologue premium/dialogue 3, parasound p3/p7, RWA isabella, Icon Audio LA4 MkIII, Cary Audio Constellation/SL98, ModWright LS100, Vincent Audio SA-T8 and VTL TL 2.5/5.5

 Quick question. How does the Bifrost pair up with the Mjonlnir (until I pull the trigger on a much better DAC) ? Specifically with the HD800's. This is obviously not the end of the rig, I'd just like to upgrade my amp first...

post #2578 of 3317
^ try putting 'Bifrost' into search this thread. IIRC some used this combination while waiting for the Gungnir.

I found that the mjolnir is best only in balanced mode. When I had the bifrost, I don't think it did my mjolnir justice. It didnt sound any better than connected to the lyr. When I got the gungnir and went balanced, I heard the amp's full potential.

It's probably more among the lines of, when you had the Bifrost, you were hearing the Bifrost. Then when you got the Gungnir, you heard the Gungnir. :|
