Lovely to see everyone liking the LCD-X better than the other Audeze 'phones for the most part. Even better to see them sounding great with the V200! I'm seriously thinking about putting my LCD-2 R.2 up for sale so I can fund the X. I know it would be smarter to buy the X, compare, and sell the one I don't want...but my way is much MUCH quicker for money.
From what I've read, the only area the LCD-2 competes with the X is it has more bass quantity, but I think sometimes it has too much of it and I want more detail. I want to keep the Audeze awesomeness that the LCD-2 provides but with better soundstage and just improved in every way. I also want to use them in the studio for mixing.
Is there any reason for me to not sell my LCD-2 to fund an LCD-X? Should I just do it ASAP?
I just ordered the LCD-X and will be doing a head to head comparison with my LCD 2 revision 2 headphones using my Mjolnir/Gungnir stack. The Mjolnir allows two headphones to be connected at the same time so I believe I can make a relatively accurate comparison by switching back and forth while listening to the same material. I really do like the LCD 2's and will likely be keeping them anyway as I have a second listening station where I can switch back and forth between my Wadia 121 and my Burson HA 160D. I'm curious to see how the LCD-X sounds with each of my amp/DAC set ups. I'll post my opinions here if you aren't in a hurry but I'd suggest holding on to the LCD 2's to make a legitimate comparison on your own equipment and then selling the loser.
