I am looking to buy a pair of these and have a few questions I wondered if anyone could answer.
These are actually second hand..the current owner bought them from new in March 2011 however he doesnt know what version they are? Does anybody know whether they are likely to be R1 or R2? I know they come with a balanced connection and also a single ended connection, both from Audeze....not sure if that helps or has anything to do with it?
Also are there any major issues I should watch / look out for with the LCD2?
They do come with the 2 cables from Audeze, the leather care kit and also what looks like a hard travel case which looks like its black (possibly a dark grey).
I also have a question with regards to driving these. They will be used around the home and in the office with my portable rig (iPod and TTVJ Slim) and also connected to my laptop via an Arcam rPac DAC/Headphone Amp at home.
The Arcam has a listed Headphone Output Power of 138mW and a Headphone Signal-to-Noise Ratio of 98dB.....I believe the LCD2 are 50 Ohm. Would the rPac drive them adequately?
I only need the rPac to drive them adequately as I will be looking at buying a dedicated and powered Headphone Amplifier in the future, so the rPac will be connected via lineout into the headphone amplifier.
