Did the LCD-3 not sound its best with the Pathos Aurium?
It's the amp on my very short short-list, but unfortunately there are very few articles discussing its performance with the Audeze LCD-3.
Hi Podeschi, I have the XC with the WA7 however I find it too bright and fatiguing. I've heard that the Pathos is quite a good pairing with the XC. A couple of questions if I may:
1) what type of music you listen the XC to? more vocal or classical?
2) what are your impressions after these months with XC+Pathos. Do you feel it somehow bright pairing?
3) what DAC are you using?
Thanks for the help!
Thanks for the insight. One clarification: do you use the Hugo also as an amp? I've heard it can be quite bright with the XC as an amp (and also that is a TOP DAC). Otherwise one could use Hugo as a all-in-one solution, right? Thx
I have the Coffman GA-1 headphone amp and just read a quite interesting review in The Absolute Sound mag about the LCD-X which the reviewer praised quite highly. The amp pairing was the Pathos, with the source running through a PS Audio PureDac. Since you did alot of listening with the LCD-X at Echo, you must have had a chance to pair it with the Coffman and get a sense of its mating up well or not.
Did you have a chance to listen to the Coffman-LCD combo?
I have a non-working HE-6 I need repaired first before taking a shot at another high end headphone. But the news on the street about the LCD-X besting the LCD-3 is quite the draw here.
A girl would say "700+ dollars for a headphone? Does it include live performance on demand in your living room?"
BTH shoes, even Louboutin, are relatively cheap compared to handbags!!!!!!!
I have a Pathos Aurium and will get soon an LCD-X.
No ideas yet on which dac to buy, though.
I am rather intrigued by the Pathos Converto to pair both the Aurium and my big amp for loudspeakers.
