Sorry, was supposed to ship Tuesday but couldn't.

Shipped it out today. Uh think I got jipped.. Was told that insurance over $1000 required express shipping so paid $45. Called a FedEx location after and she had no idea what I was talking about.

FYI don't go to third party shipping depots smily_headphones1.gif
Thanks for the opportunity Justin!

Yah I hate to say it but you did. There is no reason for them to charge $45. I paid something like $25-$28 including shipping directly through Fedex. I have one of those pick your shipping places and its a total rip off!! 

 

 

Thanks,

UPDATE:  Just Received the LCD-X (East) from SteveZ.  I've already contacted Justin via PM and will now PM the next person.  No obvious smells and wears.  

 

I just did a quick listen to it via Bel Canto C5i and find it little bit muffled?  Not sure if the C5i has enough grunt to power up LCD-X as intended :o but this is super quick initial impression!  

 

Edit: oh wow.... this is going good.....!

Justin, I'm gonna assume you'll be getting the HE-560 sooner than later?

I think they're close to release, since the last thing I heard was mid-April and the first demo units have been sent out. Judging by all the positive reactions, I think it's gonna be a big hit.

Update:  I've hand off the LCD-X (East) to keithpgdrb today since we were very close.

 

Sad to let it go... I've fully enjoyed it and might purchase it :D

Yes, clean and simple hand off.  I love it when someone can avoid shipping!

 

Wont get a chance to crack them open till late tonight unfortunately.

 

I mentioned this to CD5Zilla, but we are having our local HP meet in June.  More opportunities to hear these great cans if your interested.  Thats where I heard the LCD X for the first time.  Ok, enough PR.  THANKS JUSTIN!!

told myself i'd put on the lcd-x for a quick listen before bed.  I started at 11:00 pm.  lol.. These are by far the best LCD offering I've heard, and I've heard them all, except the closed version.  So much more balanced.  wonder how they would compare to the HE-6.  I'll have to borrow some.

Hey guys, the west coast LCD-X arrived at my office this afternoon and everything looks great. 

 

I did some casual listening at work through my icon hdp. They sounded great but aren't terribly practical at my office due to their open nature. My softball game was conveniently rained out so now I'm home trying out Big Star - #1 Record > Bifrost Uber > Soloist. 

 

I'll get these out to vaed on thursday. 

 

Big thanks again to justin for setting this up!

I would like to drop to the end of the list for the LCD-X (West). Seeing as this is sponsored by justin and HeadAmp, I very much want to demo them on my incoming GS-X, which should (I hope) be in my hands by the end of the list.

Unfortunately, I have to drop out since it seems I would get the phones when I am on a trip April 3-15. LCD-X (west)

I will be out of town for work between April 5 - 9. Please move me to the bottom of the list, if possible. If not possible, I will have to drop out since I'm next in line for the East LCD-X.

In any event, Thanks Justin!

I know this has been said, but how much are we supposed to insure the LCD-X for?  I don't feel like going back and reading the whole thread for this little nugget
