Otherwise, bite the bullet ... the expense will be swept away by the XC's glorious sound.

Are these often 10% off or so?

From my experience, I have never seen these on sale except last year when they ran one for the LCD-2. But then, I don't live in the US and hence unable to go the meets as well :mad:

Reading this thread it seems like the HeadAmp Pico works fairly well as a dac/amp for these?  That's probably right around the budget I'm looking to spend right now (I'll get something else down-the-line, don't worry...).

 

I was also looking at Yulong but it doesn't seem that those pair very well with the LCDs.

Has anyone tried the LCD-XC with the LittleDot MK VI?

I was going to ask you if you had applied gloss !:biggrin:. There, I implied it anyway. Welcome to the club. Get a tube amp (IMO) and these babies will sing.

I use the Pico dac/amp combo with with XCs at work and it works really well.. if you've never seen the Pico in person, you'd be amazed at how small it is... very portable and very capable.

That looks pretty great.  I think I might have talked myself into getting the Oppo HA-1 though :(.

 

The only thing the Oppo wouldn't be great for is bedside listening.  Right now I use a really old Xin SuperMicro IV as my portable amp and I'm not sure how well I like the pairing with the XC.  Maybe down the road a Pico would be a good portable addition, hmm...

The Oppo HA-1 is a very nice amp -- completely different in terms of portability of course -- there's never a single solution for anything and you'll always end-up getting multiple pieces of gear.  I listen to this setup at work approx.4-6 hours a day and have no complaints -- and I use the amp on the couch/bed at home when I'm too lazy to more closer to my Burson,  Don't get me wrong.. having a main amp at home is a good idea, but having a good portable amp(s) gives me more opportunity to listen to music though my headphones.

Agreed.
