Sorry, I tried the LCD-X with my HPA-21. And yes, I would say it is more neutral than the LCD-3, but it will never be able to replace my LCD-3. For me the LCD-3 sound is what I look for
when in the mood for that warm, luscious, tube like, sound from my music. If I want neutral, I just reach for my HD800's. Paired with the HPA-21, the LDC-X sounded a bit veiled with
a smaller sound stage in comparison. And it lacks the previously mentioned warmth of the LCD-3.
I suppose if you could only have one set of Headphones, the LCD-X would be a good compromise with the HPA-21. But for me, now that I have both the HD800 and my newly purchased LCD-3,
a compromise I'm glad don't have to live with. As the proverbial "Cat" is now out of the bag!
But everyone's ears are different, so they might not "see it", or should I say, "hear it" the same way!
