lol I agree it is really that good. The amp also continues to change for quite some time. I'd say around 250 it fully settles in. The fact that I'm using it exclusively with my DX100 further proves that ;).

lee730 twisted my arm on the dx100 thread, just ordered 1 and hope to be pleased as the rest of you seem.  I have my doubts whether this amp is capable enough for orthos like LCD-2 (I want this to be my main transportable setup with the dx100), but figured I give this a chance before I get the MK3-B or perhaps the successor to the Intruder that's been rumored lately.

Let us know how it works out :). The amp is quite powerful as is and using the DX100 LO I think it should have more than enough Juice to cover you in this regard :).

I just love the center focus of this amp.

Yep everything is so balanced and musical. Yet it is also full sounding.

After reading all the glowing reports, I ordered one about an hour ago.  I just checked my email and there was a note from Gavin thanking me for the purchase and getting it ready to ship.  You can't beat customer service like that!

I think you would find the T1 being able to get the LCD-2 to reasonable listening levels but possibly won't be as great as a desktop setup in terms of bass tightness, slam and whatnot. GirlsGen can elaborate here or PM him if you wish. I believe I read  people using the LCD-2 with the MkII with quite a good output...(I imagine the MK3-B would be better). It really depends on what you define 'capable' as and how much you wish to compromise in terms of amps when using it as a portable setup as opposed to an ideal desktop environment with PSUs etc....

 

Let us know how you find things when you eventually can compare to the Mk3-B. That will be an interesting read.

 

Btw do you really use the LCD-2s as a portable? I would be afraid to take it outside the room!

 

EDIT: I'm afraid of girl germs. Btw have you seen that cool LCD-3 particles video: http://www.head-fi.org/t/635572/audeze-particles-video

He did mention using it with his DX100 which will provide even more power for them so in that I think he'll be fine. But I agree there are probably more capable amps available but we'll see. At least from comments I've gathered this amp is hitting other amps in the $500.00 plus range. Even Shigzeo is very impressed with this amp.

Yeh it will be interesting to how this fairs against something 3 times the price (as in Mk3-B vs T1)

Yes funny because I have the LCD2r2 with the T1 amp with me on my desk right now. I've had the O2 for a long time as well to compare. I also know that the MkII was not quite enough with the LCD2, and stuff like the SR71B beat it, though they claim MK3B sounds much more fun, and able to drive the LCD2, esp. via balanced. I've also had the DX100 and it was enough to drive the LCD2 well.

I often run the HD650s from my T1 and they're easier to drive than the LCD-2 (or so I believe).

 

The only thing the T1 can't do as well as desktop setups is the overall dynamics of the music so the space and ambience seems a little less to my ears. For a portable, it is extremely good, but I think having the extra dynamic range from a 120V / 240V system makes a difference in terms of getting the absolute max from the headphones.

 

Can't say enough though about how good it is with full size headphones, just with the caveat that it's good in relation to being a portable.

I've been running LCD-2 exclusively pretty much with my Lyr thus far since I find them having great synergy together with the proper tubes.  The LCD-3 I drive with the Mjolnir and that will stay put.  I bought the LCD-2 to have as a "transportable" setup with the dx100, not portable.  To me there is an important distinction, I am under no delusions that I can wear open back headphones in public easily carrying something like the dx100 along with amp on the go heh.  What I want is a nice listening station that I can take along with me on vacations and trips.  My portable setup is basically nice universal IEMs like the Shures, Heir, and Westone along with decent sources like the Sony Walkmans.....I doubt as good as the dx100 but I can't have that on the go with me.  I will most definitely buy the mk3-b but am waiting for the black color to come in stock.....I don't want to pick up the silver one and have it contrast with my dx100.....no real hurry and it gives me an excuse to let the wallet have a break hah (so much for that with the purchase of T1).  I will post back with what I think....I am also very curious about the reports of this thing outdoing the pico slim for IEMs as I've always thought highly of this amp in my experience with IEMs.  Endless toys.
