Sounds like you should avoid Silver and get a copper cable.

That is quite an unusual requirement with the LCD2.2s. If you hadn't mentioned the headphones, the LCD-2s would be my last guess to be honest.

 

You may find it worthwhile having a look at what's wrong with the rest of the system and purchase something like Silver Widows which have exceptional synergy with the LCD-2s in a good system. However if your system is fine and that is just your preference, then fair enough and any copper cable will do. But do know that it won't help that congested, ok the nice word is "intimate", soundstage a bit.

I agree that with a lcd 2 the sw would be first choice..but if his rig is very bright then a good copper cable which is NOT dark at all could compliment his rig..thats why i adviced bw..as imho the bw has all the good charastistics without the darker sound normally associated with copper..my 8wire balanced bw even sounded very bright sometimes on certain tracks..cant imagine i would like it even brighter!!! On my he500 ofcourse..and the 337 i had.

How did you use a balanced cable on the 337?

Frank made me an adapter of the same exact 8wire bw cable ( i posted pics of that in this thread) from 1/4 to dual 3pin xlr (my new amp will have dual 3pin xlr headphone out) as my headphone cable.. And it sounded absolutely wonderfull...a full balanced dual mono 8wire bw..u have to try it..it was millions ahead soundwise compared to the regular single ended 4wire bw i had first...
Hope this answered ur question.
