Babinga XC.

 

post #182 of 2642

Hello guys,

I want to get a big upgrade from my A900X's. Those LCD-XC look simply awesome and very interesting... I need to know if the ALO Rx MKIII B+ will be able to drive them very well, or not even worth a try ?

The impressions compared to the TH900s are interesting. With music that has thumping bass the LCD-XCs feel like they could do with more of a kick in the pants in that region for pure enjoyment factor.

Sadly, the way it (and all other planars I've experienced) handles note decays is less impressive. The way notes die down into silence, I've always felt that dynamics do that much better.

 

I think you meant "regular dynamics", but I agree that has always been one of the complaints with planers, that they are fast to deliver notes, but can be sluggish to end them. I remember when we were all ranting about the LCD-2s someone who was a big classical music listener observed that he couldn't make out as many individual instruments on a particular track as he could with the HD-800s. The LCD-3 were required to solve that.

I tried the 3B when it first came out and it was very good with orthos.

Hello all:

 

Got the XCs after an 18-day wait at customs ! I challenge any one in Head-fi to achieve (let alone break) this record :mad: . Putting them through their paces ! The Babingas are so beautiful.

Shazhada, what you think of the vegan leather? How does it compare with leather, if you've heard? And why did you go for these? Ps interesting look with the black trim.

I've got the LCD3s in leather and they get very uncomfortable during summer. That was the only reason why I went with the microsuide and am glad I did coz these are certainly softer than leather cups.

Ah, I see. In the UK we don't have that problem. Leather and extra heat is always a good thing. Even in summer!

Actually, leather isn't always a good thing. Just the heat!

I've opted for leather earpads because I feel it just gives the headphones more quality.
