Right now I'm listening to the recent Calexico album and new lucid mode gives it a very pleasant forward presentation on the HD800s. Doesn't sound 'weird' like it does on some albums.
Another Head-fi'er from Amsterdam, nice to see. I read you had a hum issue with your Taboo, were you able to solve it?
Two months ago I heard an LCD-3 on a Bakoon HPA-21 and a Malvalve Head Amp Three. I was so impressed that I now am happy to have an LCD-3 in the house even though my amps are less than optimal for the LCD-3. So I made a short list of amps I might be able to afford, with a balanced output and sufficient power. The Taboo MKIII is on the top of my list, also because it is supposed to do great with an HD-800.
In a few weeks, when my LCD-3 has enough hours on it, I would love to hear it with an LCD-3 and I see you have one. Is it okay Kendoji to send you a PM?
Are there others who heard the combination of LCD-3 driven by Taboo MKIII?
