I would assume it was me. Sorry about that. When the guy from Headphone Bar told me it was the last one I didn't think further and just ordered.

Another +1 here

While I mostly use my hidition nt6 pro CIEMs for which the x5 is it's best pairing - my lcd2 sound even better and I was surprised that AtomicBob's hd800s did too. While the x5 may not drive the lcd2/hd800 to the level of a 10k desktop, they do show just how much the x5 has to give on the go and sound wonderful.

Looking forward to trying my LCD2s with the X5 alone and also with the E12DIY. Hopefully the pieces I need for my adapter cable will arrive today.
