THIS. And it doesn't stab my ears either. Fatigue induced by mids, not treble. Hmm. Still need more time to assess. :)

<Maxvla > on LCD2 I had a similar opinion to yours, if you change the cable entreq  challenger 2010 (4 pin xlr)  unbelievable how things have changed, I could not believe in it, I will not write what has changed, they are not just flavors it is completely another level of presentation (clear, smooth, much more dynamic)

I'm surprised you found a slab of unobtanium that big!

It was a job lot from an ex- military secret project.

And, no, it was not on ebay.....

I've took a step back into mid-fi with the K701's at the mo and I'm really enjoying them! It's crazy to think that I'd have to spend about $1000 more to upgrade to the HD800's... for the little improvement.  

  I have both the lcd2 v2s and the k701s and over time I have to say I prefer the 701s soundstage performance over the lcd2 v2s.But lately I have become enamored of my desktop active monitors the emotiva airmotiv 5s which were ok when I bought them but since I have upgraded the stock fuses in them with the hifi tuning supreme fuses and emotiva power cords they have become my go to solution for music listening.They are are just simply amazing sounding and have much better soundstaging in my nearfield computer setting than either of the lcd2 or k701s.I do not own the 800s but after hearing them at the axpona chicago show I doubt they could come anywhere near the soundstage that I am getting form the airmotiv 5s with the fuse and power cord upgrade.The speakers just disappear at times and the dynamics are surprising for such a diminuative active monitor.They are making it tough to go back to listening with headphones.I have not listened to my headphone setup for over a month maybe a month and a half. I have a great appreciation of active monitors now that I own some.I remembered my first exposure to them years ago when I heard  ATC actives a couple of times many years ago I remembered they did sound pretty impressive.But now that  I own some I am realizing the considerable abilities they possess and am enjoying the experience immensely.  I will eventually go back to my headphone system but for now I am smitten with my active monitors.
