Strange- that is contradictory to everthing I have read in the threads. My understanding is the LP2 has a distinctly different sound from the LP with the LP being "bassier", but the LP2 having improved overall sound quality and not as dark.
I own the M100, LP2.
Started by listening to some LPs that were on display.
LPs are more bassier.
LP2s are less bassier, easy to amp with FiiO E17. Crisper sound. Looks better.
M-100s beat both. I spent $410 on my M-100s, hiring designers and engraved plates isn't cheap.
