I'd agree with this. The Gun+Mjo combo with the LCD-2 is the sweet spot for me. I get a TON of detail out and energy out of the setup which is nice for the LCD-2 which has a dark-ish personality, especially when compared to it's nearest competitor the HD-800 without any of the grating and kind of uncomfortable transparency of the HD-800's. I think Gun+Mjo swings the LCD-2 from a dark headphone to a neutral headphone that lets the record speak for itself, whether it's some fancy Chesky recording or a early classic 70's punk recording in a PLEASANT way.
Lets be honest, if you listen to non-audiophile music you don't want something that's ultra-revealing that a studio would use because low-fi recordings which can be great songs, will sound like crap and that's generally a deal breaker. I like to imagine we don't spend all this money on equipment to make some of our favorite songs sound like crap.
