Any chance you compared package D with LCD X-C?

Thank you
LCD XC is brighter and more detail compare to LCD X
Hugo is also bright sounding amp and detail
If you like bright and detail , than you Will Love
AK 240 + IBasso DB2 > use optical cable
DB2 + Hugo > use Coaxial cable > LCD XC has Excellent SQ

Personally i prefer LCD XC than LCD X

IMO

I've heard more impressive songs off something like google music than some of my 24/96 lossless music. Just because it's compressed doesn't mean it's horrible. Just saying.

@Indieman don't get me wrong I have nothing against compressed files or Spotify in general and I realy enjoy music browsing/ discovery on the platform. But to my ears the highest resolution available on Spotify (320 kb/s if I remember ok)does not sound as good as a home made 192 kb/s mp3 rip. Spotify sounds limited in the dynamic range and the edges of the frequency spectrum.

When I am out walking/running with my dog,I wasnt paying much attention to the edges of the frequency spectrum,some days even the best of rips dont sound great and some days spotify sounds very good!

Ah I see. I haven't used spotify recently, mostly just pandora, google play music all access, and itunes radio. While true lossless will always sound better, I haven't found these other formats lacking at all with my hd598's. There were some songs that literally took my breathe away!

Hi Michel
For use coaxial cable between AK 240 and Hugo , you need external dac like IBasso DB2

AK 240 > use optical out to DB2 > use coaxial cable from DB 2 to coaxial In Hugo > LCD XC

Hugo strong Point is their coaxial input

I am sorry forget to put DB2 as media For using coaxial cable

You can use E11 to drive HD 800 , but E11 has not enough Power to drive HD 800 to their SQ , sound so thin

Would a Fiio E07K Andes be enough to drive DT 880 Pro 250 ohm version?

How would you guys stack that version against the DT 990 250 ohm?
