    Audeze LCD-2 Impressions Thread

    Quoting myself... I received today the suspension strap from our fellow Head-Fier. First impressions are excellent. The bottom part that touches the head has a suede feel, different from the leather on top. The rings are plain elastic hair bands. It looks solidly built. Putting it on, it's...

    Audeze LCD-2 Impressions Thread

    Thanks... I downloaded the ASIO driver, I was using Wasapi for MQA files. Is there much of a difference? I used the right input of Meridian (I was using the headphone one). I changed the sound outpout of the Meridian through Windows to 16/44.1, as I thought that higher is better. NO...

    Meridian Explorer² Impressions Thread

    Hello fellow meridians. I'm reposting from the lcd thread just in case you can shed some light into a problem I'm facing. My portable chain is laptop - meridian explorer 2 - objective 2 amp - Audeze Lcd-2. From which one should adjust the volume? Foobar, laptop's volume (it's has common...

    Audeze LCD-2 Impressions Thread

    Well usually my Flacs are 24 bits/ 44.1 kHz at best, I can't always find 24, I sometimes have to choose 16. Meridian is capable of reproducing files of 24-bit/192kHz and I find that the right sound volume for me is around -20 - -10 dB. The weird thing is that I think I'm hearing artifacts when...

    Audeze LCD-2 Impressions Thread

          Thank you for your answers. My reservation comes from the fact that I THINK that I hear noise  when I'm having everything maxed out and just adjusting the objective amp. On the other hand having the volume adjusted at 3/4 on my objective permanently, the foobar one at full...

    Audeze LCD-2 Impressions Thread

    My portable chain is laptop- meridian explorer 2-objective 2-Lcd 2. From which one should adjust the volume? Foobar, laptop (it's common with meridians as when I adjust one the other follows accordingly) or objective? Right now I have meridian laptop and foobar at max vol. and I am adjusting...

    Meridian Explorer² Impressions Thread

    Well there are occasions that I will take the explorer on a trip and then its' amp capabilities come in handy. I use it rarely that way, but still I would like to have this option. I don't know if you own explorer 1 but in term's of upgrading you are saying it's worth it, right? In this case I...

    NEWS: Meridian Releases The Explorer Pocket-Sized USB DAC

    Thanks! I'm not looking to alter the sound, just looking for improved sound. The explorer is neutral to my ears and I'm very satisfied but if the sound is better I will consider it. On the other hand maybe in a few months explorer 3 will pop, I know I can't win.

    Meridian Explorer² Impressions Thread

    Hello to the community! I have a question for you Explorer and/or Explorer 2 owners. I own the Explorer and I am using it as a DAC only, as I also have an 02 amp. Do you think it will be a worthy upgrade to buy the Explorer 2 for this use (DAC only)? I am not considering the standalone DAC by...

    The Audeze LCD-2 Ortho thread (New)

    Not 100% headphone related but still... Just realized, there are two versions of the rugged case. The older one is this one:   and the new one is this one:   Looks like the new one is more practical, deeper, wider and has a tray to put the rest of the accessories like the cables...

    Oh ok, I didn't know about that, I have yet to explore the rest of the forum, I have only been in Audeze threads only! Thanks for the suggestion.

    Thank you for your support and guidance.   Now I have two extra rods (they sent a pair for no reason), one headband and two (bent) yokes with rods attached (so two pairs of rods in total) and I doesn't feel right when thinking about throwing them away. On the other hand these parts are...

    Oh, maybe that's why they changed the wooden box for the rugged case. They are afraid of what's inside, not outside.
