I think with all these LCD 2 comparisons that people need to be reminded that the MD's are merely voiced similarly. Other than that they really share no other similarities. I think people who haven't heard both get a bit misled by the constant comparisons.
IMO the LCD 2's are on a whole other level compared to the MD's. They have a much more open and detailed sound and they're more tonally rich than the MD's. Plus there's the bass which goes very deep.
That's exactly how I feel. Similar voicing, different levels of refinement. They don't even sound alike to me.
