Audeze LCD-X - Page 269

post #4021 of 5522

What do you guys think would make for a better sounding combo?

 

The LCD-X with the V200 and Rega OR the LCD-3F with the Schiit Mjolnir & Gungnir?

 

Seems like most are saying the LCD-3F is more enjoyable than the X. Am I better off getting an LCD-3F instead and starting off with the affordable Schiit combo?

LCD-X with WA7 + WA7tp

Didn't see it mentioned here, but Tyl has a posted comparison of the F and non-F Audeze line:

There's no doubt that he knows what he's doing, but when I read stuff like, "I could hear the moisture of the vocal chords slapping around..." I lose faith in his reasoning ability. That's tantamount to a Stereophile reviewer saying he could "hear the tone of the music change as the floor bowed" (or something very similar) in a review a few years ago. 

 

It's as if writers and reviewers are running out of superlatives and metaphors so they come up with this kind of ridiculous stuff.

I take it you've read srajans reviews (or whatever his name is) on 6moons. Talk about superlatives. Every word of his reviews sounds like gobbledygook to me

Sorry mate, that's what I heard, so that's what I wrote.

+1

 

that Tyll review is actually ok though, I guess it kinda explains why when I heard a newer LCD-3 it sounded alot better than I remembered.

Well, at least he doesn't use the word "gestalt" in his review, so props for that.

His reviews are pretentious and non-engaging. They leave me with the impression that I've learnt more about the author's ego than the product in question.

Exactly, I always read them though about gear I am curious about because ultimately they are still some of the most in depth reviews available but I feel like you need a BS translator to get through his reviews.
post #4031 of 5522

Exactly why when I make reviews I tend to stick to simple english and am more blunt/straightforward with descriptions.

post #4032 of 5522
I'd have thought that most people who read reviews about audio gear just want to get a basic idea of how well a product performs, whether it's well made, good value etc. I enjoy reading impressions but I don't appreciate having to wade through a deluge of bad metaphors only to be left wondering what the reviewer actually thinks of the product he's supposed to be writing about. He strikes me as a wannabe literary critic who has somehow missed his calling and ended up writing about DACs and headphone amplifiers instead.
post #4033 of 5522
Yeah, I also don't care for his reviews because everything I seem to read about gets a blue moon award, how can everything be the best at the same time? I don't get an understanding of where the gear ranks in terms of its competition which is the main thing I care about.

After a couple week break in with my new LCD-x just want to give Audeze a shout out.  If there is a better set of cans out there my 56 year old ears don't need it.  Zero regret for me on this purchase.:gs1000smile:

just back from a meet in nashville,it was my first,and we had a great time !

 

had an opportunity to compare an lcd 2.1(wood connectors) the newest lcd2, with fazors, about a week old, to my lcd-x, no surprises that it was basically a good, better best but the surprise

was it wasn't as dramatic as one might think, it was very cool

i also got to hear the he-6 for the first time, it was very impressive ! while it did do some things i really like, i did prefer the overall sound of the X.

everyone was very impressed with the X, especially how easy it is to drive.
