CanJam at RMAF 2013 Preview (And Exclusive Early Reveals!) - Head-Fi TV - Page 22  

post #316 of 361

Interesting to note that quite a few have liked the LCD-X over the LCD3s although the latter is still more expensive and therefore probably the flagship.

Reminds me of a similar situation between PS500 & RS1i.

 

I personally adore the LCD3s and its my number 1 headphone. So when the closed back ones were released it was a no brainer...I've pre-ordered the LCD-XC :smile:

I'll be all over it with my filthy mods. Have a few more in my head, just not enough time, but they come through big time from 3 months back.

its good, but needs a bit more omph, its too much oooh and ahhh for me. 

 

basically, it trades bass and impact for a huge holographic 3d soundstage that i rarely hear in tube amps, and an endgame quality magic midrange only tubes have. 

 

however, the bass is kinda weak, the midrange is too forward for my tastes, too tubey sounding for me i guess. lacks bass with Beyer T1, but it does fix the T1's recessed midrange.  not for me though.

 

with HD 800 and acoustic music, its very good. as well as vocals. its a nice amp, but i just don't wanna deal with 6f8g noise  and buying expensive 6sn7 that lack bass definition and are too colored sounding.

 

seems if you're willing to spend alot on tubes, and hd 800 is your primary headphone and you love tube sound, buy it!! its good!!!

 

but my WA2 brings me as much enjoyment and a little more bass less soundstage. and isn't too far off, the diminishing returns really kicks in as macedonianhero once said when he compared them.

Like your decisiveness! The question is, which wood and material did you choose? I'm thinking the red wood with the standard Black leather or the walnut and suede.

I'm also ready to pre-order but can't make a decision on which pads to choose. I'm leaning toward the vegan pads due to reported better comfort but it's hard to picture if it will look good with the walnut cups. =x

Thanks!. Walnut and suede for me

I really want to see what walnut cupped XCs would look like.  I'm thinking walnut would be best for me.  Taking a bubinga wooded XC and photoshopping the darkness of that wood down to walnut levels doesn't quite do it for me.

Yeah I guess it can work for few amps, but not with LCD-3. Can't give up the bass on the LCD-3 as it is. Better mid range is always welcome, but the LCD-3's midrange is usually already good enough on most amps that I personally wouldn't trade the bass for a better midrange.

 

So you selling or keeping?

i think the bass is alright on LCD-3 haven't listened to much else though since this is mostly an amp i wanted for hd 800/t1.

 

its not really that it lacks bass, cause it doesn't. just that the OTL WA2 was better suited for the Beyer T1's drivers with the high impedance that rises up to 1400 ohm in the midbass. the WA22 doesn't do as good of a job with that.

 

i dont really see any bass lacking with hd 800 or th-900, i think its a T1 thing.

So far, what's been your favourite amp for the HD800?
