I would have returned my XCs the first week I had them had I been able to. In also have TH-900 and I expected the heaven and the earth to part with the XC . Alas only the heavens did, the low earth nowhere to be seen. Lol
But after breaking in and times spent with the XC the bass is there in there just not overpowering. Now I love them.
The TH900 are my fave for heavy rock and metal no doubts .

While IMO the LCD-XC's are very good sounding headphones, since using the PH tubes with my BHSE, my 009's have gone to another level, and because of that I'm hardly using my LCD-XC's.
So I've decided I'm selling them which I'll be putting on the for sale forum soon.
My LCD-XC's are different because I put a different headband on, and I did that because I found the LCD-XC's with their original headband were very uncomfortable, but with the headband I did I find very comfortable, however they are still quite heavy.
With the headband I did there are two things that can't be done anymore, but I'll explain that when I do the post on the for sale forum.

I've put these 4 photos on the for sale forum but I thought i'd show them here as well.

As I've mentioned in the post I did in the for sale forum, the DHC Complement 2 cable and the stand which the LCD-XC's are on are included in my asking price.

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

Of all my amps, the Pico is the amp that I feel pairs best with the XC's.

Anyone tried the XC with the Mjolnir? Can you please share your impressions? thanks

I purchased a Darkvoice 336SE on a recent group purchase and it pairs nicely with my XC.
It punched up the bass a lots and this combo has been getting a lots of head time recently.

Interesting that an otl amp can drive it well. Is it with the stock tubes?
post #1374 of 2642
Yes stock tubes in it for now.

Has anyone tried the XC with the Fostex HP-A8? I imagine it'd pair fine, but if anyone has heard the combo, I'd appreciate any opinions.

It that because the amp has lots of extra power relative to its needs?

I think any amp can drive the XC and play it loud. But the music may be thin and lifeless. I just want to hear some impressions from those who have a have heard the XC from a very powerful amp, maybe a vintage receiver or something along those lines.

I'll be trying them with my LittleDot mkVI, don't know if that qualifies as "very powerful" or not.

I'll try it with a Pioneer SA3000 and see how it compares with my other amps.
