    Ray Samuels Dark Star vs Cavalli Liquid Gold

    Let's say that I have $4k just burning a hole in my pocket and that I'm considering upgrading to an "end game" amplifier.     Two solid contestants for the title of "Holy Grail of headphone amps" are Ray Samuel's Dark Star and Cavalli's Liquid Gold.  Outside of price, I don't think I've ever...

    Identifying Audeze LCD-3 with Fazors

    I am on the hunt for a pre-loved set of Audeze LCD-3's.   One of the questions I had was, "How do you tell if an LCD-3 is a Fazor variant or not?"   I got a quick reply from Audeze customer service that I thought I would share here for the benefit of the group and for Google to find in the...

    I need recommendations for headphone amps/dacs

    Hello everyone, this is my first ever post.   Having finally graduated law school and landed a good job, I can afford to dive into the head-fi realm.   I currently own a Creative Sound Blaster E5 portable headphone amp/dac, and I have a pair of Sennheiser HD280's, Beyerdynamic DT770's (250...

    If the PS500 was an IEM it would sound like...?

    After trying both the UE900 and Shure SE535 I'm yet to be satisfied searching for a fun universal IEM. The PS500 has a big fun factor, great in rendering vocals ( I use reversed bowls) and in an IEM that is what I want. Balance is for quite listening time, energy and fun factor is where it is at...

    Headphones sensitivity, impedance, required V/I/P, amplifier gain

    The following table is based on measurements, not manufacturer specs.   Target SPL is 110 dB SPL. The source is assumed to output 2 V. The amp is assumed to be a voltage source (0 ohm output impedance). Voltage, current, power are RMS figures.   What do the columns mean? S@1V is the...

    Need advice.

    Hello guys, I have Audeze LCD3, Burson Audio HA-160D and Weston 4R's. I am thinking of selling the LCD3's and replace them with a cheaper headphone that pairs well with the Burson Audio HA-160D. I bought the LCD3 for $2000 so how much can I sell it for? It's almost brand new, I bought it...

    LCD-2 or 3?

    Finally decided to keep an Audeze around as I'll have a second living room. Ear time vs bang for the buck is the issue here so I'm wondering which I should pick.     Ear time can probably be measured in minutes per year. I've had the HE/V90 for years now in my existing living room (under a...

    Hi everybody   Just curious if there's anybody in Dallas/Fort Worth area who currently own LCD-3 headphones. I've just about decided that I'm going to get these in 2013 but need to see how they stay on my head when relaxing on my bed. So before I waste 2G's on something that will keep...

    REVIEW – Audeze LCD-3 planar magnetic headphones

    REVIEW – Audeze LCD-3 planar magnetic headphones   Introduction:   The announcement was a well-kept secret, and it hit the head-fi community like a ton of bricks.  Audeze was coming out with a new headphone, the LCD-3, which would feature a new driver, new pads, slightly uprated...

    LCD-3 (and other high end flagships) with Older Recordings/Lo-Fi Recordings

        I wanted to get some opinions on listening to lo-fi recordings, as well as recordings from the 60s and 70s, on headphones of this caliber. The general consensus of the LCD-3s seem to be: transparent, great bass response and impact, elite midrange, good (but not elite) soundstage. This type...

    Amp recommendations for Audeze LCD-3

    I was searching on this topic and didn't find a dedicate thread. So I'm staring one, and let's gather more ideas for the community.   So far, from the reports by several members, the LCD3 sounds very nice paring up with   Tube amp: Leben CS300X (SE), Woo Audio WA22 (balanced)   Solid...

    LCD-2 and LCD-3 Owners - which aftermarket cable do you use?

    Just paid for my LCD-2 and its only a week away. I'm after some opinions on cables specifically from LCD-2 owners with aftermarket cables.   I've tried to search the forum with limited success. It seems the ALO Chain Mail is a popular choice but on the more expensive side...

    Very high pitched intermittent distortion

    I apologize if this isn't the best forum to post my question, but I couldn't find a more appropriate place.    Today I received a new pair of LCD-3's purchased online directly from Audeze. I am using a Schitt Lyr/BiFrost combo which is only a couple of weeks old to drive them. I have used...
