    I have an audio-gd HE-9 with my LCD2C and LCD2rev2 and this one is a killer. It really gives the power and precision that perfectly match the audeze. Bass is particularly impressive.

    I believe firmly that a Burson Soloist SL is an awesome pairing.

    I use this amp to drive my LCD XC's . Fantastic!!
    Major power flexibility.

    What balanced tube amp you recommend in 300-500$ class for LCD 2C? Currently using Audio-GD 28.28 amp dac.

    I had been using a Woo WA2 to power two headphones over the last couple of years, HD800 and LCD2F. The WA2/HD800 is a tremendous pairing, but the WA2/LCD2...not so much.

    Decided to add a dedicated SS balanced amp for the LCD2 and chose a Schiit Mjolnir. This combo is blowing me away. The MJ has such total control over the Audeze and is showing me effortless power and a level of detail retrieval that is very satisfying.

    The LCD2's are my "change of pace" cans and I'm thrilled that the Audeze musicality has returned.

    My .02, YMMV.

    I have been thinking about Schiit Mjolnir and i might pull the trigger on it :D Even tho i got that Audio-GD NFB 28.28 but i can use it as an DAC for Schiit Mjolnir.

    I'm curious as to why you assume the Schiit amplifier will be somehow superior to the Audio-gd? I've heard both and to my ears the Chinese product sounded significantly more sorted.

    Well it is not that but that mjolnir has TUBEs :D Im looking for second amp beside to Audio-GD. I know NFB28.28 is killer good amp/dac i just want "colored" sound too. NFB28.28 is clean and sharp as katana (samurai sword) :D So i am keeping Audio-GD too. Except maybe upgrade it to a Audio-GD Master 11 or so this year.

    I'm not sure that a hybrid amp will do it for you. Sounds like you're after a pure tube experience. The Mjolnir sounded solid state to me and I would've guessed that it is in a blind test!

    AHaa ok. Yes im after that extended soundstage and buttery sound. I might go as high as 1-2K$ as price goes.

    I have owned both an A-GD balanced amp and a Mjolnir. I much preferred the MJ. More dynamic and I appreciate the ability to contour the sound with the tubes. That said, if you’re looking for that really warm lush tubey sound, it’s tough to come by in a balanced tube amp at your price point. I really like my Woo WA22, but it’s $2k and still not what I’d call lush. That sound you’re after usually comes from SE tube amps like the Ampsandsound Kenzie. The Kenzie is my go to amp for tube warmth.

    I have been using the Massdrop THX AAA 789 for a month now and can say that this, paired with an Audio-GD R2R11 is superior to everything that I have listened to. THe R2R11 amp sound doesn't even come close. The difference can even be heard from the outside when someone else is using it.

    interested to know as well. looking at the element specifically

    I tried a couple of amps like Rupert Neve RNHP, Chord Mojo, Jotunheim with my LCD2.2 but finally settled with a Violectric V200. It is a marriage made in heaven. The power of the V200 drives these planar magnetics with absolute control. I can easily recommend this amp over the above mentioned ones.

    I’m using the chord mojo, I’ve been using it for around two months now and I can say I’m very happy with it. Maybe that’s because it’s quite portable.
