Congratulations!

 

I have to tell you that the difference in the bass is night and day when you power the Abyss from a lower powered amp versus a high powered amp. I tried the Abyss from a Woo Audio WA7 versus the nfb-27 and I can tell you that there is a huge difference in terms of slam/impact and overall sound.

 

The bass (in terms of slam, quality and quantity) should be higher than your LCD3's. If not, try the Abyss from something more beefy, if you can.

You will certainly have a very good setup.

Augmented my setup:

It never seize to amaze me what the little Mk3-B can drive. I'm more amazed, however, that you have refrained from ripping open your LAu's box!!!!

 

p.s. what's the difference between the Mk3b and the Mk3b+? I've always wondered.

 

Thanks

From what I know the MK3B+ is an improved version, especially with the bass control knob... Note in testing I've not moved the bass knob, as in its off.

The non "+" has a bass control knob also... anyhow, as far as I'm aware, the output stage hasn't changed... which means mine should be able to drive it. Would be an amusing perversion driving a 5.5k headphones from a portable setup beyersmile.png

I would think that there is no upgrade. These are JPS cables!

If only Lessloss did cables for headphones...

I tried using my LCD's Labkable 99%silver 1%gold cable (as seen in the photo) and it made the bass boomier and deeper, and the SS a bit wider.
