would you guys consider Magnums "summit fi"? if so, those sound fantastic unamped

Better a used Denon D5000 with J$ pads if you're going unamped. That way you only pay 400-500$, there's NO need to pay 2000$ for the TH900.
Or a CD3000 - that's way better sounding - if you can find one that still works and doesn't sound like crap. I have to warn you, most of them are fizzy decaying husks by now, the CD3000's, but if you can find a (L)NIB one, jump on it.
Getting it for $1250.... Not saying where though ;-)
What's your take on all the things you've got there? Liquid Glass and HD800 / LCD-3 sounds like a killer combo. Why would you even consider moving to SR-009? Just curiosity?
IMO the hd-800 is the winner hands down. The lcd-3 is more natural but the detail and resolution of the hd800 eats up the lcd-3.
Wanted the sr009 just to try it with a liquid lightning.

Interesting, that's pretty much how I feel as well. I prefer my HD800 and a bit of EQ to make it more neutral/natural (take away peak at 6k Hz, add a touch of bass) but then it bests the LCD-3 for me personally.
The thing that really sealed the deal for me personally between those two is the soundstage. I love the HD800 soundstage and the LCD-3 feels too cramped for me. Others might feel differently.
Thanks for the feedback.
