CanJam at RMAF 2013 Preview (And Exclusive Early Reveals!) - Head-Fi TV - Page 14  

post #196 of 361

Unless Woo have recently changed the design of their Wee transformer you need to be careful what type of amplifier you use with it, All the black speaker posts used to be tied together inside the unit, and switching between speakers and phones used to only on red side. 

If you use this with certain types of amplifiers i.e. bridged amp (circlotron, high power solid state, T class) it will likely damage it.

I loved the LCD-XC, I liked it much more than the LCD-3, which I had spent 3 weeks with before hearing the XC.

Honestly, I cannot say. It was a very brief listen, I just remember enjoying it A LOT.

It was a 5 minute listen a couple of months ago, I have no clue!

At least you're honest about it.  Some people would post impressions as if they knew every last detail of the headphone from meets and store auditions.

Yeah, I don't want to mislead anyone. I would most definately buy it, but I would not buy the LCD-3.

Don't forget the system behind the LCD-X and LCD-XC at the meet... If it was dcs vivaldi...and @ home you have a down to earth DAC....that would explain a lot :P

NO NO - sorry, I know I mentioned my dCs above, but it is NOT a Vivaldi (believe it or not I'm not a big fan of that DAC - we all seek different things, and it's always sounded like great Hi-fi to me, but not great in terms of the music.  It sounds too analytical for me, and I DON'T mean hyper-detailed. I mean analytical and cold.

 

The source DAC that was used was for my eval of the LCD-X was my dCs Delius!  An older model (actually not worth much at all now - about 10 years old - but I brought it down because Audeze was short a DAC for their Headmasters table and I needed my MYTEK for the Meet).  Plus the Delius was updated as far as it can go, but that's also why I brought down my Sonicweld Diverter to use with it.  

 

At home I use a dCs Purcell Upsampler with it for hi rez support.

 

Though I agree on the down-to-Earth comment - 

 

The rest of those who heard them both were using @warrenpchi's Woo WA7 Fireflies!  As indicated in the CAS Meet pics in the thread (I'll get the URL).

 

That's a pretty popular head-amp/DAC combo.  

So I think they had a high quality source that represents a level of sonic integrity that many headphone devotees have.

 

And @wolfetan44 used what he posted above.

Was that my PHA-1 and MacBook you used @wolfetan44 ??

Just for clarification.  My initial impressions of the LCD-X are not merely from meets or store auditions, but auditions w/ my own reference tube headphone rig (both my E.A.R HP4 and ALO Studio Six, plus I also used the CEntrance HiFi-M8). Though my time with it was short, which is why they're only initial impressions.

 

Just wanted you to know I wasn't basing my impressions merely on the Meet experience,

or from the store audition.

Yes, I remember it because I was the last to hear it, it was the very end, and you just set me up with your PHA-1 and let me listen for a song. And it was Mike's(Hifiguy528) Macbook.

ANYTIME!

 

I can't wait to get it back here and live with it for awhile!

The closed-backs knocked me out too

- but the Alpha Dogs are close - I had to just pre-order them after listening!!

 

I'm psyched to hear the new Focals too,

and the Abyss with Cavalli gear
