Mostly because it's covered here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/495631/amp-recommendations-for-audeze-lcd-2

 

Should be doing some research on your own before posting a poll. It'll get you better responses as well as prevent redundant polls/questions like these.

Hey,

 

I'm sorry but I can't read through all these thousands of thousands of comments nor can I sum up the recommendations for each amp.

 

So a poll would be great. :-)

I didn't like the Burson HA-160D.. didn't sound any better than my Nuforce HDP and that made me depressed for the state of the hobby after I read all the publications about it.

Can somebody vote so there's no draw? :-)

V200

 

It is more refined and a better match.

from a balanced source. Best amp I've heard the LCDs on.

For the price range (around $700-1000 ish), I'd also throw in the GS-1 as another fantastic ss option for the LCD-2s. I did prefer it over the V200 and Burson HA160. That said, between the 2 amps listed in the thread title, I preferred the V200.

Based on my experience Burson HA-160D

post #14 of 21

I would go for the Schiit Mjolnir if I were you. Costs less then the V200 and from what I read, is the one to beat at its price category right now. The 160D and V200 were good amps in the past no doubt, but they have serious competition as of late.

In summary, this (Violectric DAC V800) is one of the best DACs I've ever experienced, which is surprising since it only costs $1300. That's a lot of money, but actually pretty low for a top class DAC, which is what I consider this to be. In my personal experience I rank it below the Resonessense Invicta ($4k), MBL 1511E ($8k), and very very slightly below the now discontinued Anedio D1 ($1230), but above the Audio GD Reference 7 ($1900), Esoteric D70 ($6500), Wavelength Cosine ($3500), and of course all the usual suspects from Lavry, Benchmark, Grace Design, Musical Fidelity, Cambridge Audio, etc.

This DAC at $1300, paired with the matching Violectric V200 ($1k), makes for an ultra-high end reference system that compares to almost anything out there.
