I was afraid of that
I wouldn't worry to much about that, they sound great even under powered. And then later down the line... Upgrade and they will surprise you once again. Albeit only if you get the pairing right.
Well, im hoping to in the next few weeks, place an order for an RME ADI-2 DAC. im very sure it can power the LCD2C fully. so that wont be a worry. i'll have to get the DAC before the LCD2C tho because its more expensive xD feels easier on my wallet when you buy expensive stuff first, then cheaper stuff after.
By the way - for me it is interesting too how those 2 pieces will be matched together. So please share your experience with us after you will get these 2 items combined
Anyone using Pro-Ject Box-Design Pre Box S2 Digital with LCD2C? It has native MQA decoding and unfolding.
I just want to say thanks for the help with the advice on what headphones to get and amp/ dac.
As I’m looking for a portable option, I think I will go with the lcd2c and the chord mojo.
Can anyone workout how many volts the headphones will get from the mojo as it’s 75ohms
Not enough to power it properly and the lcd2c is not a good portable option in my opinion.
Mojo's max power output is 720mW at 8Ω, 35mW at 600Ω. At 70Ω (2C's impedance) that must be around 670mW.
I loved my Mojo and tried it with the 2C. It is absolutely enjoyable.
The improvement with a more powerful full sized desktop amp however is undeniable.
How much detail and clarity will I miss out on if I use the mojo ?
Detail and clarity is not the biggest issue here. The 2C sounds fairly clear and fairly detailed out of Mojo. (Speaking from experience here.)
The difference comes from somewhere else. (In my case using Questyle CMA 600i and then the 2Qute as a DAC.)
Bass and treble extension suddenly improves a lot. It is not just nice mids anymore but full bass and exciting treble. Soundstage is bigger, sound is bigger and more authoritative.
It is like going from a good home system to a more professional setup.
I also have the denon I use for my home cinema, would that be of any use? Do you think I should choose other headphones
If you like your bass deep and detailed don't choose other headphones. Make these work instead.
You could give them a go out of your Denon, however that is more of a speaker amp. Might be overkill for the 2C. Too much bass, etc.
If you really want a pair of headphones with good bass extension, authority, punch and slam just buy a powerful enough amp around £5-700.
I will stick with the lcd2c and the mojo and save up for amp. I know the more educated thing to do is get the mojo with the Oppo PM2 but I Justin can’t bring myself to do it.
I think Mojo and 2C is better than Mojo and PM2. It is really not more than 20-30% improvement what you can get with a full sized powerful amp. But once you hear the improvement you can never go back.
I think that’s why when I get them I will not try and find a full sized powerful amp for a while, not that I could afford one .
Do you think I should keep the stock cable or get another one
