Well, not sure what you mean by (C) or (F), but it was the first time listening to the LCD-3 that they actually started to impress me.  As I recall (this was last October) they had better bass impact and separation, and seemed to me to have more energy...if that makes sense.  Still did not beat my HD800-s on the ragnarok but the gap was closed slightly, The LCD might have had more bass ?presence? but not better overall SQ.

 

Okay looked up the C or F thing, not sure which one they were but it was last October at CanJam if that helps.  When did the "F" version come out?  Like I said not a fan of Audeze in general so have not been keeping up with their latest.

F version is Fazor and came out late 2013...December I believe. There is a serial number that indicates the beginning of Fazor. C is pre-fazor I assume. Or it could be Chocolicious.

F = Fazor 

 

C = Classic?

post #11539 of 19517

On the LCD2's, just check the serial number. 54XXXXX is where the fazor change happened, late last December.

 

IMO, the LCD2.3 (fazor) are a nice compliment to my HD800. The Senn is clearly the better can but I find the Audeze is more euphoric and is my "fun can". Luckily, I have found a tube combo in my WA2 that sounds great with either can, so no more switching tubes back and forth.

I've been following this thread for awhile but I was wondering if anyone happened to have any good cases for theirs.

 

I know pelican makes a great bomb proof version but for just carrying it and storing it I'd like something slimmer and easier to handle. 

 

Any suggestions?

I have been looking at this model for a while... but none of the reviewers have mentioned if it will hold a HD800 or not yet... but it looks like it would be big enough:

Yep...this is a good one. I've had it since Frank I turned me on to it last year. The second track, Black Night, is one of my reference/test tracks. Oh that bass is just delicious.

Reg a ref cd meaning red book. I can highly recommend
A count Basie disk. It's on Pablo records
It's kansis city shout
A pic of Basie on the cover
It's has clarity and details with dynamics
It also is great music with legendary people on it.
Eddie clean head being one of them. Ina really good DAC the cymbal brushing a are just fantastic
It's a must have to anyone.
If someone wants I can list some DSD as well

Yes, I would appreciate that. Especially if you have any more recommendations of great sounding jazz albums.
