    Dan Clark Audio Stealth Review, Interview, Measurements

    The separation and low distortion do really highlight recording quirks. I find myself hearing boundaries of samples on electronic music more often than I do on any other headphone. However, this doesn't really take me out of the music in most cases. Highly subjective for sure. Everyone is going...

    Introducing the Audeze LCD-R!

    Would you be willing to (ahem) reveal what that profile is? I do not have Reveal+. Not using the bass boost on the Jot-A, just the correction for the 5k dip.

    Introducing the Audeze LCD-R!

    So, uh, who got the LCD-R B-stock that was on the audeze holiday sale? :eyes: Also, I've been listening to these a lot more now that I've gotten settle in after moving. I played around with EQing the 4-5k dip and it is difficult to go back. Toggling the EQ off feels like I am dunking my head...

    I'm new here, and want to buy

    Just check the classified listings regularly. It would probably be under Source Components -> DAPs.

    Dan Clark Audio Stealth Review, Interview, Measurements

    Yea I don't really find that much value in the measurements either. Listening for myself is the only thing that will tell me whether I like something or not. I definitely enjoy the stealth. I don't think it sounds overly smooth but the treble is definitely not biting which could mean that for...

    Dan Clark Audio Stealth Review, Interview, Measurements

    I own them and that is not what I am hearing. I am in the middle of a move, though. So I cannot compare to any of my other headphones. I'll report back in a few weeks once I am settled. Short of TC and Susvara, what would you recommend in this price range?

    What is flimsy about the build to you? Any examples that might make it easier to for people to understand your impressions for the FR?

    Dan Clark Audio Stealth Review, Interview, Measurements

    For the detail / resolution, it would be interesting to know how it compares to other TOTL closed backs. Like Jude said, the distance between TOTL closed backs and open backs can only be halved but never quite catch up. Resolve didn't mention Stellia / VC I don't think.

    No. Internal transformer.

    Introducing the Audeze LCD-R!

    Stopped by Audeze's offices today to listen to the CRBN. While I was there I asked about the issue I mentioned earlier in the thread. Apparently the popping sound I am experiencing when engaging the bass shelf is completely normal. Probably should have prepared some more questions, haha. 🤷‍♂️

    Audeze CRBN Interview, Review, Measurements

    Had the opportunity to stop by Audeze's office in SoCal this afternoon and listen to the CRBN for ~30 minutes. Not really enough time to get a good sense of it but I can give some impressions. I don't have too much experience with high end stuff yet other than listening to a bunch of different...

    Feedback by 'gKalkin' on listing '***Sold*** Schiit Lyr 3 w/ Multibit DAC w/ Extras'

    Good communication, package was shipped and arrived promptly. Great to work with! Thanks!

    Introducing the Audeze LCD-R!

    Thanks for clarifying! Measurements wouldn't need to be from headfi. I guess I just meant that I don't see a reason Audeze's own measurements could not be released for the LCD-R. 🤷‍♂️

    Introducing the Audeze LCD-R!

    @Audeze Would love to have measurements of the LCD-R. Any reason the CRBN's measurements could be released by headfi but not the LCD-Rs? Not a huge deal I suppose but would just be cool for us nerds to look at.

    Introducing the Audeze LCD-R!

    Ah... so even though the Jot-A can get the LCD-R sufficiently loud, its ability to react to some delta in current for a given set of frequencies may not be on par with some high end speaker amps. Correct?

    Introducing the Audeze LCD-R!

    With Jot A having so much headroom for the LCD-R, what exactly does using a speaker amp bring to the table? I barely even have a basic understanding of amp design, so any info or resources on this would be useful. I don't think I'll ever try it but I am curious about the physics behind all of...

    Audio-GD Singularity 19

    I happened upon one of these a while ago and I have no use for it anymore. Too big for my desk setup. There is so little information on these that it is difficult to determine what it might be worth. Any thoughts on this? It will be my first sale on headfi so I wanted to check so that I don't...

    Introducing the Audeze LCD-R!

    @Sense You can easily pull the volume knob away from the chassis. Sometimes these get pushed in slightly too far and rub.

    Introducing the Audeze LCD-R!

    Definitely sounds promising! Glad I made a move on LCD-R, though. Not ready to invest in a full electrostat rig right now, haha.

    Introducing the Audeze LCD-R!

    Yea I have found that if I put my ears pretty far back that the fazors barely touch. I guess I have a large head because I am nearly maxed out on the rod adjustment. The pads compress a fair amount so I can see why Audeze recommends that you do not store these with the pads compressed. Even so...

    Introducing the Audeze LCD-R!

    @Audeze Is it normal to hear a popping sound when engaging the bass compensation on the Jot-A? Only seems to happen when I first flip the switch after a while. I stopped after a few times because I don't want to damage anything. Anyone else experience this? Just wanted to follow up on this...

    Introducing the Audeze LCD-R!

    Definitely agree that LCD-R has great tonality. I have listened to an LCD-X before and I recall things just feeling kinda wonky right away. Once I applied the audeze EQ through roon, it sounded much more natural. I don't feel like the LCD-R needs that. If you're really a bass head then maybe a...
