In fact, as I recall, he had them stacked at RMAF as well.

I am simply offering the facts of the situation. You are free to draw any conclusions you wish.
 

He may also had the option of putting the power supply on the floor much like he did with the Blue Hawaii at that meet (as long as the cable was long enough).

There are many things in the world that the human senses can't hear or perceive but still make sound or have an effect otherwise which can be observed by a machine—and are you going to say that because you can't hear something, it doesn't exist? It'd be logical if you just said that you couldn't hear it (because human hearing is inherently flawed and every person's hearing is different), not that you couldn't hear it and hence it wasn't there. Otherwise that's completely illogical in the face of certain scientific fields which study the "invisible" and "inaudible" worlds.

I didn't reply to your post.  So really :cool:.   I retract my last sentence saying it just wasn't there.  You are correct, because I don't hear it doesn't mean it's not there.  However......

 

I simply said "I had no issues what so ever"  Let me say that again.....   "I had no issues what so ever"  That's all I'm saying.

For the LCD-3s, I'd say an amp that could do about 2W into 50 ohms would be sufficient for them to really open up. For the LCD-X, quite a bit lower...even 500mA sounded fantastic driving them.

Awesome, thanks for the reply Mac. I was hoping my amp would be sufficient, I may look at a Burson Conductor down the line, but both that and the LCD-X is a bit too much to spend for me all together. That should give me something to look forward too and the NovaPre should suffice for now as long as it can drive them sufficiently with 1 watt @ 32 ohms.

I think the Conductor would be a great choice really for both headphones. Maybe not 100% ideal for the LCD-3s, but still pretty darn good.

What would be a better match do you think? I really like the Burson Conductor or the Schiit M/G combo.

I have no experience with the Burson, but I can say that I'm quite enjoying the X through the M&G

I would think the latter, but if you're planning on a HD800 or T1 to add into the mix, I think the Burson would be the better all rounder.

So the Schiit is a better match w/ Audeze. I don't plan on adding more headphones later, this one will be it for me.

I would say that the GN/MJ is the better Audeze choice. 

post #1692 of 5522

Ok, good to know, its a little cheaper too.

In my case, with the Conductor and LCD-3, it was the schiit M/G combo not getting any usage.
Have not tried the LCD-X yet.

I agree. Both the Burson Soloist (headphone amp only version of Conductor) and Schiit Mjolnir are some of the best sub-$1K amps for the LCD-3, but in the end I preferred the Burson by a small margin after auditioning both and decided to keep it.
