    Honestly I don't use the magni but from what I've heard, and the decent power output, money should probably be spent on a dac if you are pairing with the Lcd 2

    I see what you mean, but why does Audeze recommend 1 – 4W @ 70 ohms?
    0.3W @ 70 ohms was enough volume to be painful for me. I feel like I'm missing something here.

    Someone more knowledgeable might be able to explain the technicalities of that, I might even be wrong. Or maybe their recommendation is just plain overkill. My 2.3W can get to ear shattering levels, but I would never want to crank it past 11 o'clock.

    Sure and it's probably because distortion and rolled off bass take place.

    I was curious, so I sent Audeze an email to ask about this.
    Their response:
    There is no optimal power rating, BUT we do require minimum power. And due to the Planar Magnetic design of our headphones, they can take a great deal of power without distorting. The technical reasons are too long to address in this email, but please see the following links:



    As a sidenote, pretty impressed with the speed of their response

    Interesting stuff, thanks for sharing!
    I just listened to the LCD-XC, LCD-3 and EL-8C on a Sennheiser HDVD 800 amp at the audio shop down the street. While the Audezes did sound better with that amp, I think the darker, pear shaped Audeze sound may simply not be a great fit for my tastes.

    heard this headphone yesterday and ye its best, hd800 is meh in comparison, hifiman he400s is even worse than hd800

    also was surprised that it actually works from regular dac, and its not as heavy as it looks or how people in youtube review made it to be. but ye such a dynamic sound
  8. Ampeezy
    ye ye dude...where'd you hear it?

    I just went downgrade from Black Cube Linear amp (clone ofc :D ) to magni 2, and i reallized something that LCD2's sounding was not affected by the amp likely more than the DAC, and yes, I'm gonna upgrade my DAC as soon as possible (currently using Musical Fidelity Vdac now :) )

    May I suggest the Schiit Bifrost Multibit ($599)?, Or the Delta Sigma version which is $200 cheaper but apparently still no joke in the sub $1000 price range.

    in a shop, we have hifi audio store here

    I love my missus a quick fleeting comment about how much I adore these headphones other than comfort 10minutes before she popped off to work. knocked me up a Audeze comfort sausage before work with promises of better later well for a couple of mins on the machine In am well my head is in happy place.

    And here is me a few weeks ago thinking I was going to be in a world of missus pain for buying the lcds and I am getting fluffy cushion head cloud cushions made lol

    She will kill me for posting this knocked it up in a couple of minutes before work with promises of better looking forward to V2 :) image.jpg
