lcd 2 rev2 is not giving me the bass i want

 

TH900 is expensive but does it give much more bass than lcd2 rev2

Using LCD-X & ALO Salty Pepper cable with Hugo, love it, though it does take 300 or so hours on the combo to really open up and sounds luscious. Addictive......

Don't want to inflame the debate again :tongue_smile:

 

...but my Hugo and LCD-X combo has a good 400 hours on it now and doing A - B comparisons today, I prefer the optical, it is smoother, more analog. USB sounds like it has more detail but I think it presents that way because it highlights the edges of vocals and transients. Using Stock cables & I am getting up to 24/192 & DSD 64.

 

Just my 2 cents

   I believe that's precisely the point Rob Watts made.

Anyway it is a very dac I would think it's the source or mix of the music. Your home system might have mess resolution or overall a little vailed meaning it takes you a little farther from the muisc per say. Some headphones do this too. Like the hd800 are up close and very personnel. But a lcd3 is less in your face . Now do not take a offense at what I said it's just some thoughts and my idea .

HD650 bass sounds pretty amazing with all genres but I'll buy TH900s for EDM. I need more bass impact.

Yes he did, wanted to put some hours on Hugo before taking the time to do a A-B

i have TH900 <3 , and my Hugo Chord is on the way , Fedex Ecpress too, can't wait :<

will post more about the combo ^^  atm have X-Sabre and Soloist paired with it, still the mids with that combo isn't the best ,

 

the best i had when it comes to the TH900's mids was with the Wa7 EH tubes, this is mids wise though, i hope the Hugo will manage to be a nice combo but doubt it can do the mids the same way since this is solid state like tube amp vs pure solid state.

Agree.

Hello all,

 

I just got my Chord Hugo a couple of weeks ago. On the topic of the Hugo being fatiguing, I did not find that to be the case. I paired my Grado 325is with the Hugo and actually found it to be very listenable. Normally I can only handle the brightness for an hour or two before it's too much. With the Hugo, I was able to happily listen for much longer with no fatigue. IMO, I thought the Grado had very good synergy with the Hugo.

 

 

 

My GS1000i sounds extremely nice with my Hugo (actually adds some sweetness and firmer bass). I didn't expect this.

Hugo has the best treble I've ever heard.  I'm very particular about treble.

What is the rest of your system like?

I'd be interested in your comments on the SysConcept.  I should be getting a new computer in the next month specificly with coax and optical.  Don't know which way to go, but heard good things about Sysc from posters like Jamato8 and such.

Did you have to order with specific shaped tips for the hugo.  Forgive my simplemindedness.
