As for hooking up to speaker amps it should be okay as long as you keep the volume down. So I been told anyway.
It sure works splendid on the right stereo amplifier :)
I use a Toxic cable with mine, it was defo an upgrade in sound but as always with cables, a subtle one. I have a silver poison. Frank at Toxic has many more options now for LCD2's and so it would be worth emailing him http://www.head-fi.org/t/609155/toxic-cables-the-appreciation-thread to find out what he can offer you and give you the waiting time involved.
I have the silver posion. I noticed a more fuller sound, more controlled. It's hard to describe the effects of a good cable sometimes as a lot of people don't believe that it can make any improvements. I've always used different headphone cables and some have been better and some haven't made much difference at all. I would also say that, it should be last on your list in the chain of upgrades, as an amp and dac are always going to give you better improvements. But once you are happy with those, then an upgraded cable can be the icing on the cake! :)
None at all. I'm surprised anyone can get "grain" with the LCD2's under any circumstances! Silver in general will tend to give you a more accurate image without any added color that pure copper can sometimes give. I think the LCD2's benefit from silver as they are warm in character anyway.
That's right, your wife! Now, you know what you have to do. Please do it.
And by the way, we're married now, so your wallet...is now our wallet. Therefore ...we are now both sorry for our wallet :). Just to be sure everything is clear, my wallet is still just mine.
And the headphones are awesome, indeed. Be that as it may - if you do not take down the videos of me, you are in big trouble, mister!
Over and out!
Run guys! The Wife is here. "And on that day a lot of audiophiles scattered in all directions of the world!".
Welcome to headfi honey.
Considering the following:
I welcome you to this passion and this forum and I say to you as well : I am sorry for your wallet ! ( as I am not giving you my headphones! :)) )
Dear Dan's wife,
Even if I sworn to not post from my smartphone ever again, this is too good to be true.
Your husband has posted a great review and those videos just made it legendary.
Please don't ruin his review. Think of all the people that could smile for the first time in their lives when reading it. You can't be that cruel...
Dan's friend Traian
P.S: Thank you for making the world a happier place
P.S 2: I'm laughing my ass off
I cannot stop myself from laughing.
You are both so funny, you just made my day (cos it started reaaaallllyyyy boring).
Dan's wife, welcome to head-fi and sorry about both of your wallets :))
Dan you are so DONE this evening !
I get you mate. I got these cans 2 days back and they are just amazing for trance. They make my DT990 (600 ohms) sound flat in comparison. Whereas the DT990 had amazing bass. LCD-2 are just in a different league...
