crazy that I saw this as I was speaking to Tyll about all this last night here at the Marriott!
I'll need to live with the LCD-X for a longer period of time before I make any formal impressions,
but I look forward to doing so after this weekend, and during the weekend on some different systems!!
I had an interesting discussion with Jude about the LCD-X as well, and both of us seem to enjoy the X
better than the 3 THUS FAR. Like I said above - obviously you need to live with these things for awhile
before you can formulate an informed opinion. I also DONT WANNA SPEAK FOR JUDE of course, but
he expressed this opinion to a few of us last night at the Atrium Bar.
The one thing I will say (that might be a disservice to Audeze)
is that I don't quite understand where the 3 stands now... But I'm drooling to listen deeper and really get
a handle on the LCD-X.
But, off to listen more and see whats up!!
I managed to turn another couple onto portable fidelity on the plane ride over to Denver again (this time w/ my
HiFi-M8 and Mad Dogs). I LOVE watching the look on somebody's face when all they've heard is earbuds!!
Tyll's been working on something VERY interesting lately, which has taken him away from his headphone reviews,
but, thus far, it seems like it's worth it (SERIOUS outreach for us headphone hobbyists)!! We talked for a long time
about it last night and I forgot to ask if I can share the news - will do today for SURE.
Should we plan a Head-Fiers lunch or something??
