So I just pulled the trigger on a LCD-2 Aluminum... It was $250 off and I've never had or listened to an ortho before (except for a beat up T50RP at a studio) so I thought why the heck not. My only concern is the weight because my crown is a really weak point and I've had to return headphones that sound amazing but lack the proper padding on the headband which will start hurting my head 1-2 hrs in. I'm going to drive it straight out of my laptop's headphone jack for now - the audio solution is from Creative and has a lot of gain so I won't have an issue volume wise. I do plan to buy an amp later - would something like a Magni 2 be a good match for the LCD-2?
