I agree, because just out of curiosity I decided to try my LCD-XC with my Pico Slim / iPod, and I'm still mesmerized at how well the LCD-XC's sounded with that portable amp. That's because that amp is supposed to be for IEM's, in fact if I turned that amp on full volume, the sound would be way too loud.
This is how impressed I am, I've just placed an order for the DHC Complement 2 OCC Copper cable with a 4 pin XLR, and just so I can use my LCD-XC with that cable, with my Pico Slim, I've also ordered a DHC Ultrashort 4pin XLR to mini adapter.
Congratulations on the DHC Complement 2!!
I'm rockin' that cable w/ my LCD-XC's right now!!
w/ this rig - I'm in sonic heaven:
