Just looking for a "sounds like a good idea to me" or a "you're nuts".
My source is an ipod gen7 160g and an O2 amp with furutech LOD. I just sold my LCD2 rev.1 so I am replacing it. At first I wasn;t thrilled with the LCD2s until I put the O2 on high gain.. Boy what a difference. Anyway, that's immaterial now that I've sold them except to say that I do like that sound.
I am thinking either the LCD rev2 or the Beyerdynamic T1 as replacements because I can get those in Canada for a decent price or for about the same money I am thinking the Hifiman HE400 and get a Cypher Labs Algorythm Solo R.
I listen to a wide variety with an emphasis on classical though more chamber style sound rather than orchestral.
Also, I listen a lot while working and having something like the LCD2 while working (I'm a knife/sheath maker) makes me a little nervous having it around dust and stuff so I tended not to use them as often as I would like.
That's kind of the main reason to chose the latter set up, and plan for another set of reference phones down the road.
Basically, is the $500 for the Cypher Labs Dac better spent on the headphones and go for the LCD2r2 or T1?
