Looking to upgrade my amp for my LCD-3's my budget is around 1,000usd

 

I have been looking at the Schiit Mjolnir, Violectric HPA V200, and the Burson Soloist

 

Thanks,

Matt

I made this exact thread for my LCD-2's. I got a mix of answers, but basically you will have to invest in a set of balanced cables for LCD-3 as well. I went with Mjolnir and Gungnir just because I haven't bought from the other two brands before. I'm very happy with the way Mjolnir is developing but perhaps I am even more impressed by the DAC.

 

I hear equally good things about all three and the Burson I have also verified to be an amazing amp in it's own right. The V200 seems to be extremely popular as well with LCD-2.

If going balanced: Mjolnir

 

Single ended: Soloist, 

 

On his review, Skylab recommended the Soloist with the LCD-3. He seems to love that combination.

Matt,

 

What are you currently using? What music do you listen to? Any particular sound you are looking for? Etc etc etc

I left it pretty vague because I listen to nearly everything, and I dont have any particular sound im looking for. I really just want to make my lcd-3's shine. I am fairly certain at this point that I'll be going with the Mjolnir simply because they have such astounding reviews and seem to be much desired with the LCD-3. More so than any amp I can find near my price point.

Well we're on the same page then. I have Mjolnir/Gungnir and LCD-2s and will be upgrading to the LCD-3s very soon

I chose the Soloist for my upcoming LCD3. I really hope this combo jives for me.

I just received my Soloist today and it's AMAZING with my LCD2.2. A significant step up from my HA160.

I am sure you will be happy no matter what, atleast that was the conclusion I came to. I went with the Mjolnir because I wanted to run balanced, but I would have been happy with any one of the amps in the poll.

I ordered my LCD-3s yesterday... will be selling my 2s. I am curious to hear your impressions of your new rig once setup and the comparisons to the previous. Looks like we'll both wind yp with the same setup in the end

I bought a LCD3, and really don't know whart to take.

DAC+AMP our DAC/AMP:

With my research i found Schiit MAGNIR+MOLJNIR or Audio-GD 27, what do you think or if you have a better option?

I am listening Rock/Hard Rock/Post Rock.

did you mean Gungir+Mjolnir?

post #14 of 15
Yes sorry

Gungnir/Mjolnir is the safe choice. They also have the evaluation period if you do/don't like the setup. Still very happy with my rig. It's nice to sleep at night knowing there isn't anything I should have to upgrade to without spending 2x the cost of the stack just for the amp section alone.
