Don't know about the LCD-3s, but the LCD-2s with classical sound muffled, beefy, and just too dark. Orchestral tuttis are muddled and instrument separation really lacking. I love the LCD-2s with everything else because they are so seductive and non-fatiguing, but not my cup of tea with Classical.
Agreed. The LCD-2 and classical don't work nearly as well as the HD800. Especially rev1 that I had. Too congested sounding.
The LCD-3 is a clear improvement with classical.
