Here are my listening impressions from yesterday's mini meet at Frank's:
1 - We compared the Taboo III with the Taboo II with 2 pairs of LCD-2.2. The Taboo III is an improvement over the Taboo II. It has more detail in the mids and slightly wider soundstage. The vocals were more forward and the sound was a bit brighter. The differences weren't huge but they were apparent.
2 - I wouldn't go out and buy a III if I owned a II, but if my favorite headphones are low impedance and I was looking for an amp I would seriously consider the III.
3 - For high impedance cans the Taboo III is improved with the CSP2. The is much more power, which there should be.
4 - With high impedance cans Glenn's OTL bested all the amps. The Glenn OTL/T1 combination may have been my favorite and that is saying a lot since I love my LCD-3s.
5 - The Woo 6 SE is a fine sounding amp and is in the same league as the Taboos.
Thanks to Frank for arranging all this.
