I don't know about this "upgrade" talk.  Wouldn't spending the same $200 on balanced cables accomplish the same exact thing?  If not more so since now the same headphone can access the amp's full power?

The XC sounds great with the Liquid Carbon!

I'm no lawyer, but here are the California rules for contests.

While I'm not sure the golden ticket is even legal, I am pretty sure Cavalli needs to disclose the odds of winning.

Also, I think the only way to make it not a lottery is to allow people to enter the contest with out paying.

Sorry.

The new price is only 50 dollars lest than a Schiit Mojo2 which is also balance and single end, and it can run tube or solid state.  I was waiting for this announcement so I could get a Carbon to pair with my Gumby for significantly cheaper than a new Mojo2, but now I'm not sure 50 dollars is worth is, especially since I won't have tubes.  Anybody want to talk me out of it?  Reddog, you've got both, which would pair better with a Gumby?

Very cool announcement. Given the new price, I'd be somewhat torn between the LC and something like mjolnir 2 for $50 more. If you need a small footprint or a transportable then it's not really debatable. 
 
I admit that I secretly hoped that the new LC would have a separate LPS type PSU for around $1k. Even so this is compelling.

Wow.  Really??
 
Let me ask you, what do you think is the more likely outcome of your post:  a) Cavalli consults a lawyer, updates the contest with a bunch of legalese, then gives anyone in the world get a free Liquid Gold for nothing or b) Cavalli cancels the "golden ticket" part of the promotion because they're a small company without the resources to deal with legal threats?
 
Go on, I'll let you think about it for a few minutes.

The MJ2 sounds very different, with or without tubes.  If you're looking for a reason to get one over the other, I suggest listening to both before deciding.

My hope is that cavelli operates within the law. Are you suggesting they break the law?

Can you outline the difference in sound between them?

I agree with Stillhart, the MJ2 sounds a lot different than the LC. I the MJ2, with NOS Telefunken E88CC platinum tubes sounds very nice, with good bass, sweet textured mids, wi t h just a touch of edginess. The bass on the LC is a little softer but the mids seem a tad sweeter, smoother. However I got the LC because it is transportable. I have used it on the road once already, far easier using the LC, than using my other balanced solid-state amp, the mighty Ragnarock.
