Hello. In a few days i will be picking up a pair of Audeze LCD- 2, and i was wondering which revision model i should get? Rev 2.2 or fazor model? What will i gain or lose if i end up with the fazor model? Anyone who tried both please provide your experience.
I've auditioned the non-F 2 many times, and now own a pair with Fazor. The non-F has that classic Audeze lush, magic, natural sound with the best bass I've ever heard. The Fazor adds better imaging due to a more controlled magnetic field pushing the drivers... but some of the magic and bass extension are lacking. Granted, these were off different DAC/amps (Brenchmark DAC1 vs. AGD NFB-28), so that might skew that a bit. Both should be neutral, with decent power.
I'd say they're of equal value, just different. I'm still very happy with the F version. I'm just hoping that Audeze figures out how to get the bass extension back while using Fazor tech. Then I'll upgrade
. There's a great article on InnerFidelity comparing the two.
